Easter Egg Hunt (2015-04-05) Photo Gallery 26 APR 2015

I don’t think I ever got around to mentioning it here on these pages, but Easter Weekend 2015 was a pretty nice little break from work.

Although we didn’t go away for the long weekend (Chantelle was working on the Friday and Monday if I remember correctly), we got up to quite a bit, including visits to the markets, play time at Bossa, visits with the folks and friends, and even a stint in the Waterfront at the Scratch Patch as one of the highlights.

But undoubtedly my favourite moment of the whole Easter weekend was Sunday morning when we organised a little surprise backyard Easter Egg Hunt for Jessica. Needless to say, this was one of the rare occasions that she didn’t actually mind being rudely awoken by her parents!

In the blink of an eye, pajamas and all, she was armed with her blue handbag and out the door, searching for the eggs that the Easter bunny had left for her! :)

Of course, given Jessica’s complete inability to actually look for things, the Easter Bunny had to be very selective in placing his eggs – in other words, they pretty much all had to be lying out in the open (and even then Jessica still managed to overlook some of them!).

Jessica literally lit up with each and every find, and it was an absolute blast to hear her excited (read shrill) shrieks of delight – though I suspect our neighbours might have thought otherwise!

Seriously though, I can’t wait for next year’s big Easter Egg treasure hunt! :)
