Easter 2020

We had a great Easter this year!  It was a little over a month ago, but better late than never, eh? We had been hoping to celebrate in Ohio or New York, but other than that, it wasn't that much different for us than normal. It was the first Easter that Haddie really "got it," so it was really fun to experience it with her.

Our town photos with the Easter Bunny were obviously canceled, so he took a drive through town instead and honestly this was so much better! We stood in our yard at the expected time and he (along with the mayor) drove right by and waved at Haddie!  We got to see him twice, on the return trip too, and she loved it! I felt really lucky to live in such a fun little town.

The night before, we dyed eggs and my parents and siblings joined over Facetime. Haddie dyed eggs last year, but this year she was really into it! 

On Easter morning, she woke up to a little basket from the Easter Bunny!  She got a wooden unicorn (I actually had buy this on a British website and have it shipped to my friend Onyi who visited just before the pandemic hit.  Who knew that would be the last time I saw friends?), sidewalk chalk, bubbles, a bunny plate, Daniel Tiger coloring and sticker book, and a Llama Llama Easter book

We hid eggs and she hunted them in the yard. She kept shouting "Eggs... [where] ARE you eggs?  Eggs... come out!!" She got SO excited every time that she found one. She would gasp and grab it and toss it into her basket. We ended up hiding them a few more times before we eventually went inside.  SO fun!

After the egg hunt, I went on a quick solo mushroom hunt! It was nice to get out into the woods. I talked to Kyle on the phone the whole time so I wasn't really alone.  Found a good little haul and we had a nice morel snack in the afternoon! 

I wasn't able to snag any ham, so I made an Easter dinner of steak, dairy-free green bean casserole, chick deviled eggs, baked potatoes, and carrot cake (from scratch!).

It was a really nice day with our little family. <3
