We started the Easter celebration with a brand new hammock. The squirrels found the old one useful to fluff their...nest? Do squirrels have nests?
The weather couldn't have been more perfect.
I happened to remember my camera on all of our outings, which has me wading through a thick amount of photos, and reliving the fun moments of the week. Those who are of the height of where my camera hangs often inadvertently get hit in the head when I turn around.
They're kind of used to it, although they prefer the 50mm lens over the 24-105mm ;)
We saw a reenactment of Palm Sunday.
There was grape juice dancing,
that looked delightful. I think it would feel invigorating. These two claimed it was great for exfoliation. I didn't try their juice.
We also found a small town fair.
Thought we'd start off with the treats right up front.
Do you see our dilemma? Nobody ever wants the same thing. Clover and Azure just about melted that they had to share...Clover didn't want that topping! Of course.
Better than fried bubble gum are these cheeks!
Ryan got some gardening advice. His attempt at growing zucchini in the east hasn't been fruitful, so he got some tips from these pros in overalls. I think that's the key.
I'm starting to think I need to hang out with more seasoned ;) sewing ladies. I found a few demonstrating this beauty of a machine and we chatted sewing machines and fabric for several minutes. I think they were impressed I knew what I was talking about. I think I might get an adrenaline rush talking sewing feet with others who are as nerdy as I am about it.
This is Bruce. Don't tell Ryan, but I think he was making eyes at me.
The girls were fascinated with this weaving demonstration. My mom has a super fancy loom that I'm hoping she'll show me how to use one day. It's a work of art itself. Clover mostly just wanted someone to listen to her chat.
We ended our weekend with a few random pieces of candy hidden throughout the yard.
Next year remind me not to hide any chocolate (I'm really good at hiding, none of this in-plain-view stuff, which reminds me of our childhood candy hunts. After we were "finished" finding all the candy and dividing it evenly between the 6 of us, I'd go out and spend quite a bit of time uncovering the covered, which was free game, thus increasing my stash.)
Also, I should hide more than 20 pieces.
Or maybe I shouldn't. (I love Olive's illuminated fly-aways)
Pearl let the bunnies (did you know we got bunnies for Christmas?) out for the hunt. We met some farmer in a parking lot and we bought two full grown bunnies. Named them Shiny (what Clover wanted to name her baby brother) and Millie. They didn't find any chocolate, but scored some carrot peels.
I hope your Easter celebration was just right, too, minus the melted chocolate.
And, once again, thanks for scrolling. If you made it this far.
