Hopping Down the Bunny Trail

Thursday, March 29, 2018
Despite the seemingly never-ending wind and drizzle, it is springtime here in Alabama. Spring means flower blooms, the putting away the winter coats, breaking out those nearly forgotten shorts, and of course Easter.

The main Easter event is of course this Sunday, but with Easter comes egg hunts and we had our fill of egg hunt fun last Friday and Saturday. On Friday, Perry had his school egg hunt and party and little sister got to tag along for the festivities as well. Perry loaded his basket up with candy filled eggs and then feasted on chicken nuggets, cupcakes, and cookies. Suffice it to say he was happily in a full-on sugar coma for the rest of the day.

His sweet teacher even made each kiddo their own "hunting license"... for hunting eggs of course.

Then on Saturday we got to go to the Botanical Garden for their Bunny Bonanza where we met Peter Cottontail himself and both Perry and Clara got to hunt eggs. Clara got some assistance, but she kind of got a hold of it...at least the concept of picking up a colorful egg in the grass and immediately trying to eat it. They were smart and filled the baby aged kids eggs with stickers.

Perry on the other hand took his egg hunting very seriously and scored a grand total of 39 eggs. Needlesstosay if you need a sugar fix...you know a place that has a candy bowl you can raid. :)

It wasn't overly warm and springy feeling but that didn't stop us from getting dressed up and snapping some cute pictures of the kids in the gardens. We love being members of the Huntsville Botanical Gardens and can't wait for it to warm up a little more and spend lots more time there. They have an amazing Lego exhibit going on right now that you should totally go check out if your kids (or you) love Lego's as much as our boy does.

Cutest little bunnies there ever were right there! At least if you ask me. :)

On another note - I got a new toy recently in the form of a GoPro camera. I have been wanting one for a while to be able to capture our family's memories in more than just still pictures. We broke it out and gave it a test run at the Gardens on Saturday and I spent some time that afternoon creating the first (of hopefully many) video compilations. You can check that out here:


Easter egg hunts around town were all early this year because of the local school spring breaks, but I must admit I kind of like it like that. It is nice to get all the bunnies and eggs out of the way and allow us to focus more this weekend on the real reason we celebrate Easter - remembering our Savior to paid it all on the cross.

Happy Easter week friends!
