easter egg hunt

In one of the books that I read to Remy, Happy Easter, Little Critter, all of the church-going critter children have an Easter egg hunt in a field. I loved that idea so much, so I decided to have one of our own!

I bought the cutest baskets from Michael’s, eggs from Dollarama, and made them bunny ear floral crowns. Then I waited for a warm day. I told them that the Easter bunny would be coming twice this year- once to do an egg hunt in the field, and once when it was really Easter. They were just so, so, so excited. It was the sweetest thing!

The Easter bunny left them baskets and a sign outside …

then laid out the eggs in the field …

and off we went to find them.

This will now be a yearly tradition for us. I can’t express enough how much joy it brought to everyone. The neighbour even joined in!

Have a hoppy Easter, everyone!

happy easter

It has been a long winter here in Saskatchewan, and as of last week the wind was still blowing and the snow was still coming down. Part of me feels as if there is no end in sight to these cold months, but then the sun comes out and I see the geese returning and I am reminded that it is spring after all.

I wanted to include a quote within this post in order to remind myself (and any others that might need it) that warmer days are near. However, I ended up coming across so many wonderful ones that I couldn’t help but include them all!

I wish nothing but hopefulness and sunshine and rejuvenation for you during this season. Happy Easter from our little prairie family to you!!
