Easter 2013

The lack of blogging has been weighing on me lately.  I love looking back and seeing all the pictures and stories from when the girls were little.  I know I am going to regret not keeping up with the blog as much as I'd like.  So occasionally I'll make an effort to catch up.  Too many great pictures and great stories to not document...and share.  Also too many times I've declared the blog is back!!... so no promises this time, just know I'm aware and will make an effort.

The next set of pictures along our journey is late March...specifically Easter weekend.  Our neighborhood puts on quite the Easter egg hunt the Saturday before.  We knew there would be a lot of kids show up but we had no idea it was going to be like THIS!  

Girls patiently waiting for the word GO!

Scoping out the loot.

While we were waiting, I was looking around and found what appeared to be a deranged Easter bunny. 

Girls are getting ready....




Lisa and I were trying to comprehend what we witnessed later and we both came to the same conclusion; it was like watching a swarm of locusts devouring everything in their path.  It was surreal!

The girls did pretty well. 

One of their kindergarten friends was willing to trade.

Then it was time to sit around, enjoy some treats, 
and take in the sights and sounds of an awesome neighborhood.

Like this one a lot of Alyssa.

Time to meet the deranged Eastern bunny.  Yes, it was just as scary close up.

The girls didn't seem to mind.

 Victory pose!!

That night, we decorated some real eggs for a hunt of our own!

Waiting for them to dry is SOOOO hard!!!!

Easter Sunday morning; the hunt is on!

I can remember the girls hunting for Easter eggs in Anchorage just a year or two ago with snow still on the ground.  What a difference this year!  The weather couldn't have been more perfect.  It was a bit chilly in the morning but it ended up being a perfect spring day.

And what a blast it was to have a good sized back yard for the girls to hunt and hunt.  That Easter bunny must have had a lot of fun hiding those eggs!

Tons of smiles all the way around.  I have a few more pictures from that day but it will have to wait till another day.  Hopefully not too far from now.
