egg huntin'

I took Morgan to an egg hunt today.  The older she gets, the more excited I am to take her to things like this.

Last year, she wasn't really interested in picking up the eggs -- I remember her just wanting to step on them all (?).  This year, she just wanted to know what was inside the eggs.

So she got her first egg, sat her little self down (on the still-damp-from-the-rain-last-night-ground), and insisted on seeing what was inside.  I had to remind her that we could see what's inside the eggs after the hunt was over (and that she'd better get off the wet ground - ha)!

But my curious child insisted on stopping and seeing what was inside every egg she found.  So she ended up with like five eggs - ha!  I'm proud she got them all by herself .

Mickey and Minnie showed up about five minutes before the egg hunt started (on the other side of the park, though). You should've seen me trying to convince my child that we could see them AFTER the egg hunt, and that if we moved, we'd lose our place in line. She wanted to go over to them right then and there.

After the hunt, we finally went over there.

She would go over to them and treat them like they were the little toddler; she'd grab their hands and hug them.

Then they had a little carousel set up. She rode all by herself (it was the tiniest carousel I've ever seen).

This egg hunt was at a park, so I knew that after the main festivities, we'd be at the playground.

She's usually not a huge fan of swings, but she was today.

Now the slide is her favorite.

We rode this thing a million times.

On our way out, she wanted to see this guy.  She walked up to him also like she's known him forever.  So funny.

On our way to the car. 

When we got home today, she told me, "I had great day with Mickey Mouse.  I had great day with Easter Bunny."  :)  Too sweet. 

{By the way, if you're looking for some good Easter books for your child, visit my other blog.}

Backing up a day or two -- at the conference this week, several of our students placed 1st in their competitive event (two were freshmen!).  We also had some place 2nd and 3rd.  All students that get either 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place are invited to nationals.  So proud of these kids!

While at the conference, I ran into my cousin, Dani (her school was also competing).  She's as sweet as she is gorgeous.  I'm so proud of her!

Gearing up for another conference this week, but this one won't include students. Got a lot to do this week, so I'm praying that all goes smoothly.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and have a great week!
