easter eggs and hunting

I must admit that the Easter sort of slipped by as we just moved house yesterday. I still got 200+ boxes to open and just could not locate my Easter decoration. The store was out of any kind of Easter eggs, but luckily I had at least bought some chocolate bunnies in advance for the kids. Truth be told, I think it was me who was more upset of not getting the Cadbury’s Cream Eggs than the kids!

Anyway, we did a little Easter Egg hunt of our own once the snowing stopped – yes, can you imagine sub-zero temperature and snowing in England on March 31st – I certainly was not prepared for it. I mean it’s warmer in Finland than here. Talk about global warming…

So each child had their own trail with further stops hidden inside the plastic eggs – colour-coded for each child as they had same pit-stops during the course. Oh it was so much fun for everyone. Little, simple things bring lots of happiness.
