Did you do anything special for Easter?

We're a pretty secular family, living in a non-Christian country where the marketing potential of Easter has not yet dawned on the chocolate companies, so Easter tends to pass us by unnoticed. On the other hand, I always welcome the chance to do some craft, and eat some chocolate, so a little effort was made.

The boys made some Easter bunnies, although T's didn't last the day...

...and we tried planting some grass seeds in eggshell 'heads', but they haven't come up...

K made the stands - I told him he could decorate them as he liked. Yup, they're solar systems.

On Easter Sunday, the Easter Bunny hid 6 eggs in the garden for the boys. I briefed K to let T find some of the eggs himself, but soon realised he didn't need any special treatment.

After finding all the eggs, the serious work of unwrapping began...

Later we all went to Lisa's place for a barbecue lunch. It wasn't terribly warm, but it was good to see her parents again, visiting from Australia, and H was glad to get to see her new house for the first time too. All in all, a good day!
