The weather was absolutely beautiful for Easter. Enjoying the sunshine, the children colored their Easter eggs outside on the deck. I enjoy seeing the different techniques and creativity they use to make the “perfect” egg. Their demonstration of patience and attention span also come through.
The Easter bunny hid the eggs in our backyard. Kyle and Kasey were at the window trying to get a jump on the other kids on the egg hunt. Seeing just how many they can spy from the house, but the Easter bunny through them a curve. Inside each their Easter baskets was a single color of egg. Their job was to only collect the eggs that matched their color.
Everyone headed outside. Hope and I were observers from the deck. With a cup of coffee in hand we were soaking up the morning spring sun and enjoying watching the children run all over the yard searching for their color of egg. Near the end when we had just a few eggs that had not been found they all started the search for the last few eggs. Despite their exhaustive search there were still two missing eggs. Those showed up months later in last July and they still had the candy in them!
While dinner was baking, we had a whiffle ball game. Everyone was a little out of practice and the wind was blowing from the bats missing the ball.
The highlight of the weekend was a trip we took on Saturday to look at kittens that would be up for adoption soon. Two adorable kittens were selected and then the big challenge of naming them started.
Someone would suggest a name. Someone else would like it but yet another person would not like it. We talked about it for what seemed liked hours! I started to think we wouldn’t ever be able to agree on names but two names finally won out. Katrina and Kit. Kit-Kat were going to join the family the following week.
