We went to Easter egg hunting at the little shopping center by our house (really it’s collecting paper “eggs” from all of the stores, and then trading them in for candy and goodies. Caroline was extremely scared of the Easter bunny.
Also dyed eggs. Relatively little mess compared to years past actually. Caroline definitely has more of the assembly-line approach to egg dying, while Becca tries to create little works of art. Henry “accidentally” cracked a couple so he could eat them.
The Easter bunny managed to find his way into the condo and brought waaaay too much candy. The kids had all pretty much gorged themselves by the time I woke up at 6:00 a.m. They were pretty nutty for the rest of the day.
We went to some friends’ house for Easter dinner and more candy-filled eggs.

Springtime means baby animal season at This is the Place Heritage Park. Chicks, goats, bunnies. Caroline REALLY wanted to hold everything, but she’s not that great at keeping a squirmy little chicken contained.
We went down to the Leonardo museum in downtown Salt Lake to see Becca’s “Reflections” project (Reflections is a national art contest put on by the PTA). All of the projects that went to the state competition were on display. Becca’s project is a mean word chomper that eats mean words and poops out gumballs that sprout into flowers (Beca gets 100% credit for the concept).
Also tried out the giant bird nest, did some painting, and played the bucket-drums. .
We took the kids to Lowe’s on Saturday to build the free kids project–planters with a see-through front piece.
We also decided we needed some plants to fill the planters. After LOTS of negotiations and fighting among the kids trying to decide on a on six-pack of flowers, we ended up with some nice little blue flowers. They were very serious about their flowers and adamant that we add worms as well. Two big fish-bait night-crawlers in each.
