We (or at least three of us) were very excited for Easter festivities this year. We had some friends over to help us decorate eggs and add some lovely blue splotches to our rug.
As eagerly anticipated, the Easter Bunny came by our apartment Sunday morning to hide some eggs. Both kids were really into finding eggs, though both stopped to open and eat the contents of plastic eggs and Julie took dance breaks with the beloved bunny Anna gave her in Atlanta.
Each egg had a letter or picture with it; together they said their baskets were in the shoe closet.
Max was excited about a book featuring his favorite planet, Saturn, but Julie was mostly interested in chocolate eggs, which she ate with one bite and now asks for every day though they have long all been eaten.
Then one of our favorite NYC traditions, the Easter Bonnet Parade. Julie was not that into wearing her hat, while Max wanted to borrow others’ creations.
She only wore it briefly while holding her basket to balance it out.
We saw some crazy hats. Julie liked one with rubber duckies, Brittney loved the Broadway-show inspired collection (can you find Chitty Chiity Bang Bang?).
A family from Max’s school hosted an awesome Easter Egg hunt in Central Park.
Julie had lots of fun with her egg-collector/necklace/purse and still wants to play with her ‘purple basket’ everyday.
After the egg hunt, the party went on with bbq and playground time.
That evening we had our eggs in oatmeal-carrot nests but Julie just wanted to eat her entire chocolate bunny.
Holidays are so much fun with these kids. Looking forward to celebrating Julie’s birthday this week,
