Today we had an egg hunt and yummy brunch in Jessica's backyard. I know what you're thinking: what's a nice Jewish girl like me doing celebrating Easter? I'll tell you what I'm doing: eating the first leavened brunch foods on this particular holiday in my entire adult life. (Passover is late this year.) And mighty fine leavened foods they were, too. But never fear--the bacon was turkey. Many thanks to Jessica and her family for a perfectly lovely event.
The theme of today's list: Sweet, Adorable and Yummy Things:
This is our first official iris of spring.
Jarrah modeling her adorable SBP gear.
Jarrah and Mommy gettin' a little jiggy with oven mitts.
Adding a little of that ol' razzle-dazzle.
Olivia showing Jarrah her Easter basket--I am very excited about the pink Gerber daisies, the pink Peeps, and the seeds. Jarrah was all about the chocolate. Check out her hand-smocked Australian gown, a gift two years ago from Nana and Granddad. It finally fits!
And the hunt is on!
Getting the hang of this egg thing. At one point, Jarrah discovered a chewed doggie tennis ball and was about to stuff that in her basket along with the eggs.
Can you resist these pink chicks? I can't. And doesn't my husband take a nice photograph?
Some of the fabulous booty.
A full basket means a successful hunt.
Hunting eggs is tiring--time for some Belgian waffles with fresh fruit compote. (Jessica is an incredible cook!)
A big hug after a refreshing dip in the kiddie pool.
Awwww. I can't stand it.
