I'm not sure who gets the most fun out of Easter around here. For a while it was the kids with Easter Egg anticipation. There were hunts in the garden when the weather was fine, around the house when it was wet, and far too much chocolate for healthy teeth and calm behaviour. With teenage hormones, there was a waning of enthusiasm from some quarters ... it wasn't cool to join in with parentally organised activities ...
However I love devising the clues and hiding of eggs filled with treats, so I tried not to let the reducing numbers of children at home stop me from keeping the traditional hunt going. It fell a little flat in 2013 with just Child No.3 to cater for.
Luckily we had some company this year and she found it much more fun to have No.1 Son and his girlfriend searching, very enthusiastically, alongside her.
Much more fun for me too, because I was able to watch three happy faces in the sunshine and got a scrapbook-worthy photo from Helena's ZIZO meme - I wonder if there are other eggs to see this week?
