It's well into the afternoon and I'm still waiting for Ryan to come home so we can start hunting for baskets. This is the first year we're giving Easter candy to the kids, and I hope they enjoy it. I decided to do a scavenger hunt for the baskets so the event would last longer. Yesterday we had fun at the ward Easter egg hunt and picnic. The kids were a little standoffish at the start of the egg hunt. I had to practically scream at them to get them to pick up an egg. Luckily they gave the smaller kids a head start, so they had a chance to fill their baskets with the designated number of eggs. This event required everyone to bring filled eggs, a picnic and a dessert to share. Naturally, Ryan was working, so it was cumbersome to carry the eggs, picnic lunch, dessert, diaper bag and purse, all while carrying the baby and holding hands with the kids. But we made it and had a good time. I hope all of you have a great Easter Sunday and remember the real reason we celebrate it.
