hippity hop, hippity hop...hop, hop, hop

We almost didn't squeeze this little "egg hunt" in because I think the littles conspired against us this weekend to see who could create the most ruckus, but I'm glad we did.Our local art gallery has gorgeous azaleas that bloom every year right before Easter, covering the entire park grounds in a blanket of pink, violet, and white blooms...the perfect backdrop for littles decked out in their Sunday best.I selfishly just wanted some sweet spring pictures of my littles, which got a resounding booooo from 3 out of 4 members of our household. Enter the "Easter Egg Hunt" and suddenly 2 of those 3 were on board, and dare I say... excited? Off topic, but why can't I find a white vest in a 2T this year????? Any ideas on where I can look?The carrot eggs were a big hit this year...Pictures of both littles, smiling, together in ONE picture were far and few in between, but that's okay, I like these candid shots better anyway. This may be my favorite of them together...they were so into checking to see what the other had in their basket this year.This little guy just melts my heart.Remember last year? As far as the little pumpkin is concerned, this Little Mermaid egg is still THE.GOLDEN.EGG!Maybe it's just wishful thinking from this mama's heart, but I love that he still looks one part "baby"...Oh, I wish we'd had a real smile here...the wind was blowing just so and this would have been so cute!!While I had the little pumpkin off to one side trying to take her picture, this caught my attention out of the corner of my eye...So of course I quickly turned just in time to catch this! HA!1/4 mischevious...
3/4 ADORABLE!


The explanation went something like this...

Well, I........................{notice how he pulled his little hands behind his back right away}
...I was just......................checking to see...................{nevermind}.........CHEESE!In the meantime...digging, counting, sorting......just to see how many eggs she could hold at one time!!! Too funny!Tomorrow is the first day of Spring!!!!!
I love, Love, LOVE SpRIng!!!
Happy Spring you guys!

Oh, I'm sorry! I just went back to add something to my cart and noticed it shows white, but navy is the only available one. :(
