The Hunt is On!
On Sunday Logan got to participate in his very first Easter egg hunt. One of my Mom & Dad's neighbors puts one on every year. They hid about 600 eggs throughout the backyards and there were about 25 kids who participated. We should have practiced with Logan though on what to do. When the egg hunt started he wasn't quite sure what to do. It was mass chaos since kids were running around and screaming while picking up the eggs. I think Logan would have been content to just watch all the other kids. Luckily though he had me, Mike, and my Dad to "coach" him and show him what to do. At first he just wanted to hold one egg and shake it. But once I showed him they go in the bucket I think he finally got the hang of it. He ended up grabbing about 20 eggs (not bad for the first time).
Once all the eggs were gathered we went over to the neighbor's garage where there were more toys to pick from. Each of the kids got to pick a "special" egg that had a number in it (1-25). The number the child picked determined what order they got to pick a toy from the table (Logan's number was 16). There were all kinds of toys - water noodles, hula hoops, sidewalk chalk, water balloons, bath crayons, beach balls, etc.
By this time Logan was more interested in just playing with the plastic eggs so Mike & I picked out the toys for him. He got big sand bucket and shovel to play with and we picked out a gun that shoots foam rings out of it. The gun is a little hard for him to pull the trigger on but he loves the bucket. He will sit and dump his eggs out of the bucket and then proceed to use the shovel to put the eggs back in the bucket. I think once summer finally arrives I'll have a little gardener to help me.
