happy easter!

yesterday we went to addison's first ever, official, for real easter egg hunt.

it was at the zoo.

i was excited. and a little nervous.

they had one in the morning and one in the early afternoon, and we went to the morning one. we figured it would be hotter and more crowded at the later one. and since we went to the earlier one, we got to walk around the zoo for a little bit before addison got tired.

let me just tell you, addison rocked!

we started out the morning like this...

...which made me a little worried.

but she perked up and was ready to hunt for some eggs!

one of addison's little buddies was there with his family, so she had a little friend.

don't think i'm crazy, but we had practiced some with her in the back yard earlier in the week. not so she'd win and be the best egg hunter ever, but because she had never done anything like that before, so we wanted her to kind of know what she was doing.

and she was awesome! she got out there and picked up eggs like she had been doing it all her life. her age group was 2 and under, so there weren't any older kids pushing everyone around. and there were tons of eggs. the way they did it was that the eggs didn't have anything in them, but you turned your eggs in after you finished and everyone got the same little goodie bag. i really liked that because no matter how many eggs you got, you still got the same thing. addison filled her basket about half way up, and then we stopped. she took her time towards the end and would just watch everyone else.

it was a lot of fun, and i'm really glad we went! they had a lot of other activities for the kids to do, as well as the same ole zoo stuff, which addison loves. we'll definitely be going back next year if they have it.

hope everyone has a happy easter!!
