Easter Egg Hunt 2018

Happy Easter Week! We spent the weekend doing a lot of Easter related things with Brayden and it was all so much fun! Seeing the world through his eyes is seriously the best thing ever!

Up first was our church's annual Easter Outreach filled with games, food, eggs, the Easter Bunny, and it always ends with a little message about the true meaning of Easter.


Throughout the week, we practiced his egg hunting skills and he pretty much had the system down, so he was ready!


Once we arrived at church, Brayden kid received a wrist band which correlated with his age group color. All of the activities available that day had a color coded mark on them so parents and kids knew which games were age appropriate! I loved this system!
 

We started with the jump houses and although he was still iffy about the jump houses by himself, he loved to jump with me!


Next up was the games! He slam dunked lots of balls and rung those flamingos like a pro!


After playing a few games, it was getting close to his group's egg hunt time, so we wandered over to the egg hunt ground area.


Over 2000 eggs were "hidden" for each group and there were a lot of different prize eggs in there, too!


Off we go! His age group was 0-2 and parents are encouraged to walk with their children for this one.


He even found a prize egg! Way to go, Brayden!


Pony rides were available for the kids as well and this was Brayden's first time to ride a pony! He ended up on Cowgirl! :)


I mean really, when did he get so big??


Last up on the activities list was the "train" ride.


One of our pastor's daughter's wanted to ride with "Ray-den" so we let her! So stinkin precious!


After the train ride, it was time to eat lunch and get out of the sun for a little while. Hot dogs were served and it took me a while to figure out the taste because they had a very slight kick to them - apparently they were cooked in crawfish/crab boil! Hello!


 We also spotted the Easter Bunny wandering around, so we had to stop for a picture with her!


The puppet show was incredibly fascinating and he loved the songs! It's funny because I was a part of the kids ministries team way back when and we performed some of the same songs year after year...now my son is being raised with the same! I love it!


After the puppet show and presentation, it was time for the prizes! Brayden won a box of chocolate marshmallow eggs!

He took a GREAT nap on Saturday! :)


Last but not least, we took him to the mall to see the Easter Bunny on Sunday. I'd received an  "early bird" coupon for $5 off and it expired on Sunday, so why not? He did great!!

Apart from more outdoor work and 2nd birthday party prep, that was our weekend in a nutshell! I've had some knee issues and I've been icing like crazy. We will see if that helps for this afternoon's run!

Have a great day!! :)
