Easter 2010: Coloring eggs

Technically last year was Keaton's first Easter but at the time he was only 3 months old so we didn't do a lot of the traditional Easter activities. This year I was so looking forward to the holiday and as part of my Spring Soul Season List I included take Keaton to see the Easter Bunny and color Easter eggs; both of which would be a first for him.

Kira and I made plans weeks ago to get the boys together the day before Easter to color eggs; the eggs that would be used in the hunt on Easter Sunday. So following Keaton's nap on Saturday afternoon we loaded him up and headed north for a little coloring fun.

Kira had the table set up when we got there and while the boys played we got all 2 1/2 dozen eggs ready to go.

And the coloring buckets full of the appropriate mixture of lemon juice and water.

Aaaaaaand....this would be where the battery in my camera decides to die!!! Dead camera battery, no case with extra battery or second camera on hand. So I was unable to document Keaton's first egg coloring adventure. Doh!

The boys spent the majority of the afternoon playing while us adults did the majority of the coloring, but they both threw an egg or two into a bucket and for (roughly) 12 and 15 months I suppose that's about all you can ask for.

The eggs turned out great and as tradition in our family each person present at Easter dinner had a personalized egg with their name on it. And most importantly the Easter Bunny had a basket full of eggs to hide for the hunt on Sunday afternoon.
