Happy Hunting!

Yes, yes. Perhaps I went a little overboard with the egg hunts this year. I just couldn’t help myself from taking every opportunity to have fun with my Noodle Doodle Girl!

Our next chance was at the Coppell Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday before Easter. A kindermusik parent invited us, and as soon as I heard the word FREE, I knew we’d be there if the weather complied…I just loved the pics and video I got of B last year at a similar event and couldn’t wait to do the same this year. And doesn’t she look pretty?? I was so happy to try on this pretty white dress I ordered online last September from Target…I got it on sale for $6. I outfitted her with summer clothes, most of which were under $5, at the end of the season and I’m TOTALLY doing that again this year. Super deals are my weakness!

Somebody just couldn’t wait for the buzzer and snuck out early. Hilarious!

She was a real pro!

Neither Bridget nor my Kindermusik buddy, Aavi, was too interested in introductions…they had loot to sort!

But we made sure to check out Mr. EB…from a safe distance (and I was more than happy to skip the insanely long line):

And also get up close and personal with Rojo the Firetruck!

More hunting was to come after lunch and a quick nap…it was the OWLS (Older Wiser Law Students) group event that afternoon and I knew I would get the major guilt trip for skipping. So I had Jonathan come with me to see all the other Law Babies. It was so much fun!

I was happy to get a chance to put me and B in our matching dresses. I bought mine about 3 years ago and still wear it all the time during the warm season. Imagine my surprise when I saw a 2T mini-version hanging on the racks at Divine Consign for $2…I nearly cried I was so excited! Don’t give me crap, haters Smile.

There were pinwheels – a real fave these days (this one met a terrible end the next day. A good lesson in why Mommy doesn’t roll down the window!):

Arts and crafts with other Law Babies:

And “Face” painting! A first for B (though for kids under 3, it was arm painting only…even better, if you ask me!):

Being a musical genius, she was amazed by the acoustics in the Quad. Me, too, girly!

The best part, though, was the adorable hunt! She really knew what to do my this point. And even was willing to share!

We had so much fun that J and I weren’t ready for the day to end…sounds like a Gloria’s trip to me! They were so sweet to bring Bridget a special plate of fruit Smile. Notice, she was not interested in having any of it and immediately shunned the gift. Jonathan and I were grateful!

The Easter Weekend was so much fun…and the big day was still to come! I think I’m getting the “enjoy every moment” hang of things these days. Don’t take any second for granted, friends Smile.

  1. You are right, B is adorable in her white dress! I, for one, smile at the matchy-matchy, and I LOVE your family pic in this post!!! Perfect lighting in it, too.
