Easter was a few weeks ago and now I know I won't go into as much detail but....

I got Terran a church outfit and a casual outfit for the hunts. He wore the casual outfit the morning of the first hunt and it got soap all over the front before we left the house. I couldn't be mad because he is a kid. He still calls it his Easter shirt though. The next hunt was cold so he was in a jacket the whole time and I didn't even worry putting it on him.

The city hunt: Zach got to come for his first time in Terran's life. He thought it was too crowded and not worth the trouble. I still consider it tradition, but he was on to something when he said we should do something with people we know. Terran did really good running for eggs and putting them in his Halloween bucket he insisted on instead of the baby blue bucket I have for Easter Egg hunts. He didn't get upset by anything and really liked his prizes. It was fun!

The neighborhood hunt: Turns out, our neighbor actually throws an Easter Egg hunt with the neighborhood, with lunch, tons of eggs, all of our friends, and the Easter Bunny! It was 500% better than the city hunt and we are so thankful to them for doing it. Zach opted to go shooting, but I got to visit with our neighbors and Terran had a blast! Their backyard is super fun, the food was great, and the atmosphere was festive and friendly! The Easter bunny came and Terran surprised me by running up to him and tapping his shoulder and talking to him because he usually gets shy in such situations. He liked that bunny though!

Easter Day: Grammy and Poppy came up to celebrate! We had his Easter basket (mostly toys, but enough candy Terran had some chocolate for breakfast!), church, egg coloring, egg hunt, yummy dinner, so much fun time with Grammy and Poppy! This year wasn't entirely centered on Christ and his Resurrection, but I was able to mention a few things that Terran will hopefully remember.

Since Easter, Terran has asked for it to be Easter again and tells people how the Easter bunny told Zach that he hid eggs in the back yard for Terran and then he had to find them. This means Terran had a pretty good holiday. As a mom, I just thoroughly enjoyed watching my child and family enjoy the festivities and cherished the opportunity to think of Christ.
