Our First Easter Egg Hunt

My parents' neighborhood/ward activities committee hosted an Easter egg hunt this morning. Last Easter Carrie was only 2 1/2 months old so we didn't do anything like this. Although I don't think she cared much more this year than she did last year. They let all the kids under age 2 go first, so we ran out about 5 feet into the park and picked up a few eggs. Carrie just liked to hold and shake them to hear the candy inside rattle around.
.
She did NOT like putting them in her bag. When I tried to hold her hand a few minutes later, she thought I was trying to take the egg out of her hand and she freaked out! She was content with shaking them for about 20 minutes. Once we opened them and showed her that there was chocolate inside she loved it! Yummy!

She got her face painted like a bunny; so cute! We spent a little while eating doughnuts and muffins and playing on the swings and the slide.

The reason her eyes are closed on the swing is because when it would swing forward she was staring right at the sun.

I'm really glad we had fun because this will likely be the extent of our Easter celebration this year. Next weekend we will be busy busy busy trying to unpack in our new house! We signed all our papers yesterday and should get the keys early next week. We'll go on Friday to do a little painting and move a few things that can fit in cars, and then Saturday morning we'll get the moving truck down there! (Hopefully between conference sessions....)

The apartment is a disaster right now with the dining room stacked high with boxes, but we're really excited to be moving into OUR house next weekend!!
