After the service, we went to a local park that was having a 100,000 egg hunt at 9:00am. There was even a section for 0-2...thank goodness because even that section was a little overwhelming. Ellison did great with the whole Easter egg thing. Except for at this age, they don't really get taking them for themselves, so it was like tons of babies just putting eggs in whatever basket they were closest too. Kinda adorable. And the great part, was that we were home by 9:30am...aka naptime!

|Woohoo...we figured it out!|
|Love this picture because that is what actually happened...and no, we don't know those cute kiddos.|

And of course that afternoon, we had our own little family Easter egg hunt. Since candy is definitely a no for my kiddo right now...says mama...I wanted to try something else fun for the hunt. So I filled all the eggs with different stuff that would she could shake to make noise. I filled them with buttons, pennies, rice, beans, mulch, rocks...you name it. Michael and I had fun putting these together. Of course, we taped them shut so she could not open them. She LOVED it! We have been playing Easter egg hunt everyday since.
