After all our family sickness this weekend (or rather, amidst it, since both girls relapsed a little during the Final Four last night—go Cats!) we enjoyed two Easter egg hunting events! The most entertaining aspect of these events to us was the fact that Kate's obsession with matching things, especially colors, has gone to a new level.
Kate also, to our surprise, absolutely HATED the Easter Bunny. She was fine with Santa and with the big monkey guy at Monkey Joe's (a local bouncy-fun place) but no dice for the bunny. Subsequently, Claire had her picture taken by herself with two bunnies this weekend.
Whenever the big bunny was out of sight, though, we had a great time. Saturday's event was Breakfast with the Easter Bunny, with Granna and Opa, so we enjoyed a nice breakfast before the (blue) egg hunt.
Today's event was at the church, where Matt got suckered into wearing the bunny costume since someone else didn't show up. Kate did NOT like seeing Granna or me having our picture taken with the evil bunny either. I'm sorry to tell you, I had mercy on the child and did not photograph her terror. I think those photos of kids scared of Santa and whatnot are hilarious, but I tried (in vain) to comfort her instead.
In other news, Claire began solids this week. Only a few times, since it was interrupted by illness, but she has seemed to enjoy her baby oatmeal so far. So much, she has decided that cookies look pretty good too!
Big sister won't share, though!
I'm thinking next year, Kate will enjoy the Easter Bunny and Claire will be terrified but still small enough we can force her onto his lap. That should make for some fun pictures!
