Our Easter started on Saturday this year. I did a Springtime Storytime at the bookstore and we did an egg hunt after stories. Egg hunt + bookstore = fun!
After storytime, we headed to Gramma Debbie's house. Aunt RiRi was home from school and Aunt Chelle put together a fun egg hunt for Marino. An hour later he asked if we could do it again! We were fortunate to have a beautiful day.
Krissy, Aunt Rianne, Sammy, Marino, Aunt Richelle and Gisele, post-egg hunt.
We finished the day with a great meal.
Easter morning, Marino woke up to this:
He was super excited to see the Easter bunny came! Favorites from his Easter basket: Melissa & Doug Firefly Flashlight, the book Creepy Carrots, and Lindt Chocolate Carrots.
Later that morning, Aunt Chelle and Aunt RiRi took Marino to see The Croods, which he loved!
That evening, my friend Chandra came for dinner with her daughter, Hannah. They live in Atlanta and I haven't seen them in a couple years. Marino generally needs a while to warm up to people, but not Chandra and Hannah! He immediately showed them all his toys, was jumping on them, hugging them, sitting on them, etc. It was nice to see him so open! He and Hannah had a great time - she even played cars, Transformers and super heroes with him.
This morning he said "I wish them could visit again every day."
Great weekend, great friends, great family!
