On the hunt

I can’t sleep tonight —I’m completely uncomfortable no matter what I do.  So here I am at 4:15AM, eating a bowl of Frosted Mini Wheats and blogging about our awesome day yesterday!  Yesterday was a beautiful spring day—chilly, but sunny outside with blue skies.  We started our day with yummy breakfast—brown rice pancakes, hash browns, and oranges, with lots of coffee of course.  We then walked over to our park for the annual Easter Egg Hunt.  Everyone in attendance was asked to donate a non-perishable food item as the price of admission (awesome, eh?!), and then all of the kids were divided into large, age-appropriate groups for the egg hunt.  The Pre-K group met out on the baseball field, and after a few minutes of hanging around with hundreds of little plastic eggs in plain sight, the kids were given the signal to start collecting the eggs.  They were given a 10-egg maximum per kid.  Each egg had candy inside, and when we were done, we deposited the plastic egg shells into a cardboard bin for next year.  Here we are waiting for the “hunt” to begin:

Here’s H in action:

And pictured with his loot:

Afterwards, he bonded with the Easter Bunny:

It doesn’t get much cuter than that, does it?  After snuggling with the bunny, we went inside the parks and rec building for donuts and juice.  We walked back home, played outside, played inside, and had a delicious lunch of leftover homemade mac and cheese, fried chicken, and pomegranate-raspberry smoothies (TOTALLY the best beverage I’ve had in a while, hands down).  After lunch, we went out to the store to buy H a bike helmet so that he could come home and practice riding his bike safely:

We topped off our fun spring day with a salmon dinner (complete with quinoa and cucumber relish), and finished up Little House in the Big Woods, which H totally LOVED!!  We read the whole book in less than a week, and now that we’re done, he knows that I mean business when I say I’m going to “tan his hide.”  :)

Tomorrow:  If I get any sleep between now and 7AM, I’ll probably be in good shape to take a prenatal yoga class in the morning.  How we spend the rest of the day is up in the air!
