Easter Egg Hunt with Ben

The Thursday night before Easter, my sister drove down from Atlanta with Ben to drop him off for a weekend with Oma and Opa.  She only stayed until Friday at lunch, so I actually didn't get to see her at all.  This was the same week that Matt's parents were out of town for his grandpa's funeral, so LL was also staying with Oma and Opa.

Crosspointe was hosting an egg hunt at McKey park that Saturday.  Matt and I had already planned on going, so we invited Oma and Opa to bring Ben along, too!

We got there about an hour before the egg hunt started, so LL and Ben enjoyed running around and having fun on the playground for awhile.  I'm not going to lie - it was a mad house there!  There were so many kids!  At one point, LL started to go down a slide so I walked to the bottom of it, but she never came out!  So I went back to where I could see the top of it and she wasn't there, either!  I started to panic and it was a good minute or two before I saw her run by.  I guess she found another slide to go down!

At 10:30 it was time for the egg hunt!  I guess it wasn't really a "hunt" because the eggs weren't actually hidden.  They were just kind of thrown on the ground.  ??  I was actually a little disappointed in this.  The hunts were divided up into age groups and I really think that the two year olds could have handled some actual searching.  Oh well.  LL and  Ben didn't know the difference and had a blast anyway!

This was also the first time that I had french braided Lorelai's hair and let her go out in public with it!  It was so cute!

Showing me all of the eggs that she found!

A rare moment of sitting down together.  It didn't last long.

After the hunt we headed back to Oma and Opa's for lunch, and then we took LL back to our house for nap.  Boy did she nap!  It was a great idea to wear her out!  I really had a good time seeing Ben.  I think that LL did, too.  And I really think that he had a blast at the egg hunt!

Poor Stevie got signed up as a 20 month old (Seth is silly) so she "hunted" like a baby too :)
