Easter: Bunnies, Kiddie-Boos, Eggs and Bones


We hosted an Easter gathering on Easter(fancy that) in our back yard this year. The festivities included turkey cooked on the grill, roast veggies, etc. Plus a visit from three of the Easter Bunny's helpers. The Easter Bunny and his helpers are hard to catch but I managed to get a few pictures of the helpers in action. The kids thought they were Grandma, Auntie and Momma but of course we know better.



Below is one of the Easter Bunny helpers with Little Bit.



Below EJ is gathering eggs.



Here is Lucy with some of her haul.



Prince Hal scarfing down the goodies. Each plastic egg contained either a chocolate bunny or M&Ms.



This is Little Bit with one of the helpers.

The remains of the day. All the eggs have been opened and contents eaten, the drinks have been drunk and the turkey eaten. The pile of bones was collected by EJ in order to reconstruct the turkey's skeleton. A good time was had by one and all.

  2. That pile of empty eggs in the last photo were all from Prince Hal. It was a good time.

  3. Great fun to see more kids taking part in family backyard egg hunts. I'm interested to know how EJ's turkey reconstruction turn out.

  4. Just found the last egg today - boiled variety. It was on the bench hidden under the Tombstone Rose limbs. Fortunately it was still intact.
