easter 2012

we made our california trip extra long so we could be there for easter, five days before granty got home. easter sunday in rancho was sunny and hot and perfect.

we got the jackal a little easter basket: a coloring book, a paint with water book, a bubble gun and exactly 3 eggs containing jelly beans. we swapped the jelly beans out for stickers as soon as he figured out what was going on and started saying "bean! mo! bean!" every five seconds.

he was pretty excited.

after church we hid some eggs in the front yard. i was pleasantly surprised by how well he did with finding the eggs...he's a smart little guy. he loved finding the sesame street stickers inside and would bring us every egg he found, saying "pop!" when we opened it.

i love this shot of jack & his grammie:

we had five more easter egg hunts in the following week and jack still shouts with glee whenever he spots anything oval-shaped. those eggs are the perfect toy! hard to break, easy to fill up with a variety of junk, always entertaining. we might have to keep ours out all year.
