I hope the Easter bunny was very generous with his goodies this morning. Easter is one of my favourite times of the year. Apart from last Easter, my sister and her family have been visiting since Benjamin was born. And hence, knowing they were coming this year, I started planing early! We awoke to little ones excited about the long eared bunny being in their rooms and leaving eggs in their Easter caterpillar (a craft project we did by colouring in half an egg carton, adding antenna and leaving instructions for the Easter bunny to flip it over and fill it with eggs). We then had a breakfast of baked pull-a-part pumpkin French toast (www.simplebites.net) and carrot cake pancakes with home made pecan and white chocolate butter (www.goodlifeeats.com). Both were a-m-a-z-i-n-g! We then lazed around the lounge enjoying each others company while waiting for the rain to stop.
Cue the big event, the Easter egg hunt! This is the kids favourite part of the day. We played some cricket, had egg and spoon races and headed in for dinner (parmesan crusted pork loin with an orange garden salad) . I love spending time with family, enjoying good food and giggles.
I hope your day was as blessed as mine.
