I meant to post about Lily's Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday, but have been distracted with other things. Fortunately, Ben keeps reminding me so I don't forget, so here I am now!
In Ben's family growing up, the Easter Bunny always visited on Saturday so that they could concentrate on Christ on Easter Sunday, and we decided to let the Easter Bunny know that we'd like him to do that for us as well. So Saturday, after dying the tie-dyed eggs, Ben got the plastic eggs filled with Lily-appropriate goodies - bits of licorice and animal cookies. After the eggs were outside on the grass, we went out, about 7:30 pm. Yeah, kind of late, but it was still light and was nice out still, so it worked. Lily had a really fun time looking for the eggs and putting them in her basket. She can say "eggs" and "basket" and it was really cute. We had introduced the concept of putting eggs in a basket a couple of weeks ago because we really wanted her to get into it, and it worked well, I think. Here are the pics.
I thought I'd include the next couple shots because we caught her doing some her her signs, which was cool because we don't have a whole lot of pictures where she's doing her signs.
Lily had a really good time, and it was lots of fun for us to watch her too. We also went to a ward playgroup Easter Party on Thursday, where they also did an Easter Egg Hunt. Lily really enjoyed herself there too, but I forgot to bring my camera that day.
