Even if Simon didn't love it I adored dressing these two kids up. Look at how good those kids clean up?
And I got a rare GREAT pictures of them together.
(Nevermind the dozen that came before this with closed eyes, one or both kids not looking at me, Simon's foot in front of Rose's face, and weird looks on their faces. If I thought photographing a toddler was hard coordinating a toddler and preschooler into a good shot is even harder!)
We were originally going to participate in a color run on Easter Sunday. We -- and apparently a LOT of people -- didn't realize it was Easter when we registered way back in December. The race got postponed all the way to September. Kind of a bummer but still completely understandable. Our plans just ended up converted back to a more traditional Easter Sunday: Church in the morning, an Easter egg hunt (after Rose's nap), and then dinner with my family.
Simon has got this Easter egg hunt thing down. He should by now. He's had plenty of practice this year.
I'm going to have to hide Simon's eggs hardest next year.
Rose got the idea pretty fast.
For being only 15 months old...I'd say she did pretty good for herself!
She and the dog were both guarding her loot.
I do look forward to including Rose in our flashlight/night egg hunt next year. Simon had such a blast with it this year and I think she'll get it next year. (I didn't even try this year.) I might hide her Easter basket too next year. And maybe one of these years I'll get around to making my own set of Resurrection Eggs for the kids. I've had good intentions the last two years but just haven't gotten to it.
Anyway...Happy Easter to all!
