I am not real sure why they call them Easter Egg Hunts anymore because they just throw the eggs out in the wide open and there is not hunting involved anymore. They should call them "Collect the Most Easter Eggs that are Laying Out in the Open". Regardless, we had a wonderful day of 2 Easter Egg Hunts and many miles between them. Rebekah joined in the hunt like she was a pro, no hesitation. Although, she might have thought it was time to clean up, with all those eggs laying around. Madeline is slowly overcoming her fear of Easter Bunny's and other people dressed up like fictional characters. She went right up to the Easter Bunny sat in her lap while giving her a hug. Lets hope the days of her screaming and cowering on my lap are over.
Madeline saw the pony rides and that was all she wrote. The rest of the day it was "Mommy, can we go and ride the horses again."

"You want me to do WHAT?" Rebekah still to this day does not like grass, even if she has sock and shoes on. You put her down in grass and she crys and crys.

Picking up eggs like a pro
