Before you say it, I know Easter seems like a long time ago now. Except, I don’t know about you, but I’m still clinging to the joy of long weekends and casual laid-back days. If you’ve been following the blog recently, you’ll remember I mentioned that the Easter school holidays were a busy time for us (and the days since have been equally challenging too)!
Whilst I did manage to tote the camera alongside and snap a few memories, time got away and I haven’t been able to slow down long enough to share them with you. That is of course until I found myself sitting in the garden with a cup of tea and my laptop. As autumn and winter are arguably my favourite seasons, I was enjoying the crisp autumn air and taking stock of the wintery changes we’ve been noticing lately.
So with the little one sleeping and a few spare moments up my sleeve, I thought it the perfect opportunity to share a few gems from the weeks gone by.
Easter in the nanny life was fun-filled, joyful and a mega long weekend of happy memories. Just to change it up a bit, we did the traditional easter egg hunt in the evening (I know, it’s not your standard easter egg hunt). We ventured down to the local park on dusk to find many bright colourful eggs had been left by the generous easter bunny. Originally Miss7 had been concerned we were going to confuse The Bunny by swapping the morning hunt to the evening but we were quickly reassured that The Bunny had indeed paid us a visit (and that he’d been extra crafty with where he left the chocolate eggs too)!
Armed with a flash light and a basket, Miss7 and I set off on a race to beat The Twins (and after a quick tête à tête we agreed we should forge our own discovery instead of following the older girls and getting sloppy seconds). After what felt like a few kilometres of back and forth to inspect tree branches and birds nest, of course accompanied by the standard excited squealing, we came out with a fairly sizeable haul of goodies. We even managed to come across a ‘baby friendly’ easter basket with squeaky turtle bath toys and (cheeky) grapes wrapped in pretty foil.
Unfortunately I was too caught up in the race to stop and take some photos of the night time search for chocolate, but I assure you there were smiles all around and plenty of family fun time.
I know it’s a while ago but how was your Easter? Did you go away? Did you break tradition and do something different from the standard Easter Egg Hunt?
