Happy Easter!

Hasn't this Easter weekend just flown by? It sure feels like it here!
On Thursday I got to spend the morning at school with Ayden in his classroom. It was so much fun! Lots of parents came along for the morning and we made Easter hats (ready for their hat parade later that day), drew pictures, did a treasure hunt around the school and had a lovely morning tea.
I always love to see how Ayden interacts with his teacher and classmates... and I find it amazing to watch how the teachers there manage to keep the kids under control! All it takes is a "1,2,3, eyes on me!" and they have all the kids full attention... if only that would work at home! Anyway... the morning was finished off with their Easter hat parade, which was a lot of fun with the kids all showing off what they had made, then they sang songs and danced a little too. I'd love to share more pics but there are so many other kids in the photos I'd better not post them here without permission. It was a great morning though.

It was lovely to have Friday at home and have a lazy day pottering around the house... no school runs... just us all here together for a change! I had to work all day Saturday though, then Saturday evening we drove up to Mum & Dad's place for the night so we could all be together for the big egg hunt on Sunday morning. Ayden had been counting down the days all week and he was so excited!

So Sunday morning we were all up early finding lots of eggs hidden all around the house! The Easter bunny even left magical paw prints on the kitchen bench where the boys had left him a carrot and a picture....

The kids all had fun collecting eggs in their baskets... even Madi got in on it! It took Madi a little while to realise that those brightly coloured things actually had chocolate inside... then we had to put them all out of her reach otherwise she just wouldn't stop unwrapping them! Trying to get a nice photo of the three of them together proved to be quite a challenge - so many distractions with all those eggs around - but here's one we managed to snap...

My brother Mick popped around for a while - it was great to catch up as we hadn't seen him for ages. Unfortunately he had to leave before lunch, but then my other brother Steve arrived and we had a yummo BBQ while the kids swam in the pool. Here's a few more pics from our BBQ lunch....
We headed back home yesterday afternoon with very full tummies and way too much chocolate. I'm sure it's going to take us months to get through it all!

Paul's back at work today so it's a quiet day at home with just the kids and I. There' s always plenty to do though! I hope everyone has had a fantastic Easter weekend full of fun, family and friends.... and lots of chocolate too of course!
