Easter

As I reported earlier, we had a fine Easter.  It started Friday night with a party at Mama Jo's, our daycare provider.  Mama Jo knows how to throw a party!  Pizza was provided by JoAnn, the families brought side dishes to share and their choice of beverage. 

It was very well attended.  Probably 20 kids in attendance with their various handlers (parents).  Since Mama Jo is only licensed for 12 kids max, I wondered where all the little bodies came from.  Turns out some were past Mama Jo's kids.  They know the Easter blow out is a barrel of fun, so they return. 

The Easter Bunny himself showed up.  The kids, together with a handful of handlers, headed over to the school play ground after dinner.  The Easter Bunny arrived and hid eggs across Mama Jo's yard and three of her neighbors.  Basically a block long Easter Egg Hunt. 

Then the Easter Bunny walked over to the school and fetched up the kids.  The newbies were truly stunned.  The old hats were expecting him.  Jenna figured out right away this was not THE Easter Bunny.  She spied blue tennis shoes below the costume and knew THE Easter Bunny would have....a couple rabbits feet. 

We dyed eggs on Saturday.  My sister's family joined us for dinner on Sunday.  I finally go around to downloading the pictures!  Here are some highlights.

First time I took this shot, she was about
as tall as the leaf on the bottom!
