We had a wonderful Easter celebration at home with Waipuna and Jackson. I thought about going to an Easter Egg Hunt but didn’t really want to come home with all of that candy and junk.
Growing up, my parents always hid a chocolate bunny somewhere in our room. It’s a fond memory that I wanted to continue as a tradition in our family. Jackson doesn’t eat candy or chocolate (even his “ice cream” is homemade with yogurt, avocado, banana and kale) so we knew this would be a real treat for him.
We helped the Easter Bunny hide all of the eggs and while Jackson ran around the house searching for them, I hid the “golden egg” in his room under his pillow with a couple of other presents.
He loved searching for the eggs (thank you Tutu and Grandpa for bringing the plastic eggs over along with his self-decorated blue Easter bucket!). First indoors, then outdoors, then back to his room. The video above says it all It was really fun to watch him run around and of course, the excitement and joy is what it’s all about!
A few highlights? Well, Jackson is his mommy’s son… totally tripped over his own feet and slipped all of the eggs! ha ha! I thought it was really sweet that he shared his ONE chocolate (that’s right, the other eggs had freeze-dried snacks in them which Jackson decided he “don’t like this” so we ended up throwing out) with mommy. When daddy asks… well, you can watch the video. Three-year-olds I tell you!
I also love that you can’t pull a fast one on this kid! I put bunny ears on his sister and told him she was the Easter Bunny. He didn’t believe me for a second.
I hope you had a great Easter! We sure did! Life’s Swell!
