Happy Easter!

Easter is pretty much a two day event around here, beginning with the church Easter Egg hunt at Cheyenne's preschool. I had forgotten to pull out their Easter baskets the night before so I quickly grabbed some drawstring "treasure bags" I had sewn up on a whim the day before. We got there about 5 minutes late and Cheyenne went right to work finding her eggs.

Isabella took her time wandering around the playground with Daddy, a little overwhelmed by the number of kids. By the time she got around to doing any serious egg hunting there was nothing left. She was just starting to feel a little sad when two older boys, probably about nine or ten years old realized that she had missed out. They each took a couple of eggs from their basket and hid them in easy to find places. "Look over here little girl," they told her encouragingly. She just lit up when she finally found her eggs and the boys looked so proud of themselves. When Bella was out of earshot I made sure to thank them. I love seeing random acts of kindness done by children. It's such a beautiful thing.

After the egg hunt we took the eggs inside to trade for our candy, have cupcakes and juice and visit the Easter Bunny. A good time was had by all.
