The Easter Bunny Delivered

As most of you know, I’ve been pretty sick the last month.  Don’t worry, it’s nothing too serious – just minor surgery and recovery.  BUT, due to the surgery, I was told I’d have to sit out during our family Easter egg hunt this year.

I was not pleased.  For one thing, that means NO PICTURES.

All you photographers out there know this is not good.  Everyone assumes you’ll be the one with the camera, so no one else ever brings one.  It really stinks!

As soon as I heard I’d be on bed rest, I struck up a plan with my mom.  She agreed to host the party and I agreed to follow directions and be still.

I minded pretty well, and it allowed me to snap a few photos from the comfort of the couch and the backyard patio.  I’m happy with the few pics I got, even if I did lose it halfway through the party with a small emotional breakdown.

It’s really hard to be told you can’t chase your three-year-old around while he’s lugging his Easter basket looking for eggs.  It’s just not right.

These are PRE-egg hunt.  Our Easter Bunny always leaves goodies on our doorstep before the actual egg hunt.  This year he really delivered!

Alvin and the Chipmunks, The Squeakel and a cool dinosaur egg.  You can’t beat that!

My mom (the Easter Bunny) even found these really cool animal shaped balloons that are made perfectly for small kiddos.  They can be blown up over and over by using their long easy-blow nose.  Sounds weird, I know.  BUT, they were SUPER COOL!  The boys are still toting them around!

And, believe it or not, I even saw Mom holding her camera during the festivities, which means there are more Easter photos coming soon! :)

Coloring eggs before the hunt begins…

AND, checking out the loot afterward.

I’d say it was a great Easter!

    Sorry you had to sit out on your Easter. :( I’m not a photographer and am still usually the person with the camera. We go camping the first weekend of every April…which happened to be Easter and the Easter Bunny found us and dropped Easter baskets off for the kiddos. It was a great time. I’ll have to share a few photos I took of Chad on an 18″ bike riding with Courtney on her 20″ bike. HILARIOUS.
