The girls did not wake up super early, but when they did wake up, they were super excited!
As they walked down the steps, they saw that the Easter Bunny left a trail of jelly beans for them.
The trail started at at the bottom of the staircase and took them right to their baskets. Sarah started running and Reagan.....well, she took her time and stopped to savor a few jelly beans along the way:)
Once they reached their baskets, it was only a matter of minutes before they began taste testing their favorites. I am not sure Reagan remembered too much from last Easter, so she was watching and taking cues from Sarah. "Are they really going to let us eat this right now, we have not even had our breakfast?"
From the kitchen table, there was one more trail that led them to our bar room where they found two hula hoops, 3D sidewalk chalk, and pavement paint! There were some loud screams followed by a lot of hip shaking..all while eating candy. Look closely, Reags has something green in her mouth.
The hula hoops were a big hit with both of the girls, even though they landed on the floor more often than they stayed around their waists!
Even though the sun was shining, it was not that warm.....and the wind, oh the wind!
We tried to hold off on the Easter Egg Hunt hoping it would warm up, but it didn't, so the girls just embraced the wind(hence the crazy hair in almost every photo) and combed the backyard in search of colorful eggs.
Reagan hit the ground running and was not going to let a little wind stop her, it was GAME ON!!
Sarah had her heart set on finding that "Golden Egg".....
but still helped to point her sister in the right direction of some of the eggs that were not in plain sight!
It might have been the quickest egg hunt in history(because we were so cold)but that is okay, the girls could not wait to bring their baskets inside and count their money!
So many precious moments to remember from our Easter holiday, but I still think this my favorite!
Nick, at 14 years old, has outgrown a lot(like Easter Egg Hunts), but he will never be too old to stop and show his little sisters how much he loves them and if you can't tell, they both adore their big brother!
