We had such a fun day on Sunday. It was Summer's first Easter so a special day. We captured the egg hunts on video, but have a few pictures, too. It's much more fun to watch and see Ellie's reaction. She was so happy and excited when she came down in the morning and saw the Easter baskets. We read both books right away and Ellie loves hers. A great girly book! ("I Had a Favorite Dress"). Ellie was also excited to see "treats" in her basket. She did a good job with the egg hunt; although, we had to give her clues on where to look. We couldn't find the last egg until I saw pieces of the shell on the floor where Summer was playing. I had put one in one of her toys and she must have picked it up, dropped it, then put in the toy basket. We also had an outdoor egg hunt. Ellie picked each one up, then shook it to hear what could possibly be inside, then opened each one before going onto the next.
While Summer took a morning nap I went for a run. It was so nice to finally wear shorts outside. When I got home Ellie was dressed in her mermaid outfit playing "mermaids." We swam in the ocean, sunbathed on the towel, and looked for treasures. I love her imaginative play!
