An Egg-cellent day!

The ol' Easter bunny hopped into our neighborhood last night and left behind a plump lamb, a couple of buckets and a whole whack of eggs to collect. Isla and Roscoe endlessly amused themselves with their new buckets and gardening tools, raking and dumping coloured Easter grass all over the living room carpet, with very little regard for the eggs that had yet to be found. 

The Easter egg hunting expedition didn't really get into full swing until a little later at our friend's house where we had been invited for an Easter brunch. Isla and her buddies left no leaf unturned in their backyard. 

Roscoe, still hooked on raking, and not so focused on egg hunting, went about raking the grass instead.

We headed home to meet up with Grandma Lady, only to discover more Easter eggs had been strewn about our very own backyard! I know - too much! The rest of the afternoon was spent with more friends in the garden, clearing and cleaning up flower beds, enjoying the warm air and bright sunshine. I didn't even have to lift a finger for supper, and sat down to enjoy a delicious home cooked Easter supper with my mom and Sam and the kids.
