Down on the farm with the Easter bunny

We were at work yesterday and it ended up being a full day, with lots of time outside thanks to the great weather. We flew kites, rode cars and went to the playground before heading to the farm for an egg hunt with the Easter bunny.
N had a great time and called all the ponies and the bunny 'dog' - his favorite word right now. (Thanks mommy for working on that one, but we're still NOT getting a dog!)
He had his first horse and carriage ride, out to the water hazard while the big girls rode their ponies and then helped to find eggs with everyone. He ended up with 2 eggs that he thought were like the shakers from music class, so had a fun time shaking them. Luckily he didn't figure out they were filled with candy and horse treats so didn't try to open them. It was pretty windy but the perfect spring day for it. He wasn't fazed by the bunny at all and was happy to talk to the bunny and get his picture taken with him, unlike the big boy who just wanted to check him out from a 'safe' distance.

Not sure about the headless pony

Shakers or eggs?

N loves the big kids and all the attention that he gets - with hair the color of his it's hard to go unnoticed! We did see another boy at the playground yesterday who had hair the exact same color, although he had more hair and curls! There are a few red heads in the extended family that I work for and when N and I are out with the kids people often ask if he's my boss' sister's baby.

Good Friday today meant that N got to stay home with Mommy while I worked today. The kids missed him, but it was a good day for him not to be here. I've been running around like crazy trying to get things together for their Easter party on Sunday. We baked sugar cookies, made paper mache eggs, ran errands and spent 2 hrs at the farm. No Easter bunny today and it's a lot colder than yesterday but the kids still had a good time. I'll be working tmrw too, it's strange being here without the baby and being the working parent for a change!
