On Sunday, Jaye had her first Easter egg hunt and she loved it! Here’s how it all went down. My family came over after church with Kentucky Fried Chicken, a tradition from when I was growing up. We used to always get KFC and go to a park for an Easter egg hunt. Grant and I loved those hunts, so much that when they were done, we made Mom and Dad hide all the (now empty) eggs again, just for the fun of looking.
After we’d had our fill of fried chicken and mashed potatoes, we all headed out to the backyard and gave Jaye her Easter basket. She didn’t really seem too excited (but that might be because we’d already used some of the gardening tools last week–oops).
But the egg hunt was a different story. That was exciting. We started by giving her one egg with an M&M inside. Once she opened and ate it, she wanted more, of course! When we asked her “Where are the eggs? Do you see one?” she started looking around.
It didn’t take too long before she definitely had the idea. She’d find an egg and come running to me shaking it to see what was inside. We filled her eggs with yogurt melts and some with one or two M&Ms.
She “mmmmm” or “whhooa” as we opened each egg. So adorable. Then she’d give the empty egg to Pops (whose name she can say now with a very emphatic “paah!” noise) and start toddling around saying “more?”
It was pretty much the cutest thing in the world. And her Easter dress is SO adorable! I’m hoping to go to the Arboretum this week to take more pictures of her in it!
You should really take another minute to look at the pictures from Jaye’s first Easter as well. Baby fever!
