Easter – 2012

April 15th, 2012 | Posted by james - the dad in Family

We’ve been in Seattle for about a year now, and last Sunday marked our 2nd Easter away from home. We would’ve loved to spend time with the rest of our family, but the flights to So Cal were so darn expensive. We still had a great Easter on our own and Gavin had a blast.

We started things off on Saturday by decorating hard boiled eggs. Gavin started with a nice multicolored egg, but with his second egg moved into the dunking phase. He kept dunking his egg, and hand, into each color for a good 30 minutes until they we’re both a nice dark green/purple color.


On Sunday morning Gavin woke up and found a surprise from the Easter bunny!

After he loaded up on candy he was ready to go on an egg hunt! The Easter bunny hid eggs all around and Gavin ran around searching and gathering them up. This year was his first real Easter egg hunt, and he loved it!

Chanin worked her usual magic in the kitchen and whipped up deviled eggs, potato cheese casserole, green beans with bacon, honey glazed ham, green salad with homemade dressing and rolls. Later, we finished it off with strawberry shortcake. Mmmmm…


We had a nice Easter and our little guy had a lot of fun!

    It looks like it was a very nice day in Kenmore on Easter. Wish we could have been there. It looks like Gavin really enjoyed himself and Chanin your dinner looks wonderful!. Are Gavin’s hands still purple??. Give him a kiss for us. Love Nana and Papa.
