Easter weekend was a crazy whirlwind of fun. It started with an egg hunt at our favorite playground, followed by Claire's birthday party, dyeing eggs, clam digging, a visit from the Easter Bunny, and more egg hunts.

I'm tackling this one with pictures.

The egg hunt at the park is notorious for having a ton of kids and about one egg per kiddo. The whole hunt is basically over in about 30 seconds...no joke. They line all the kids up along the fence and say "go" and it's over in a blink of an eye. Claire hit the jackpot though this year and ducked under the tire swing and found the egg motherload.

In keeping with her fear of people dress up as characters, Claire was not a fan of the Easter Bunny...so she posed with the wooden Fred Flintstone instead.

This is when she discovered her eggs with filled with candy.

 Then we dyed eggs.

Easter Sunday was a gorgeous day. Lot's of outside time. Lots of candy.

Unlce Kevin orchestrated this egg hunt...hence the eggs in the tree.

I received a gentle reminder over the weekend that I needed to get my "booty" (as Claire would say) in gear and catch up on my blog. Since The Little Red is almost 25 months, it's clear that her birthday party post is a little bit behind but here it is nonetheless. More time to reflect, right?

She had a fantastic time. She walked in the door and started jumping up and down (which honestly, isn't all that different than her normal entrance...to anywhere). It didn't take long for her to be drawn to the treat table. 

Baby Jack dressed up for the occasion...of course.

She enjoyed showing Grandma Pam all of the boundaries she likes to cross on the play equipment.

Intitally, she was really excited for the birthday song...

The she got stage fright...but Grandpa saved her.

A month later, and she still talks about her birthday....and presents. Grandma Pam brought a grocery sack out of her car a few days ago and Claire said "You have a surprise for me?". It's safe to say she likes birthdays.
