Easter holidays day 1...

Well the long awaited Easter holidays are here...
That means two weeks of over excited children to entertain!
 So we have spent some of the morning coming up with a plan of what activities we would all like to do.
These range from Pond dipping to Snail racing with many, many other activities in between.
Toward the end of this post I will include the list the children came up with.

Surprisingly other than egg hunts none of the activities have much if any cost too them.

Anyway today they decided to start of the fun with a Egg Hunt organised by the two oldest boys.
We provided them with a bag of foil wrapped eggs to hide.
The little ones were very excited about this and kept peeking so had to be sent to the living room to wait.

The boys were very good at hiding the eggs....

They hid them all over the place.
The garden mirrors....
With the garden toys....

....and in the apple tree as well as many, many more places.

When they found them they were very very excited....

As you can see Micah was rather pleased with himself and his green egg...

Liliana waited all of a minute before tucking in....

Fairy Larakia found a few and was rather proud!

Oliver really rather enjoyed finding them too.... 
Just in case the chocolate around the mouth is not evidence enough....

He thought you might like to see the inside his mouth too so you can truly appreciate the chocolaty goodness!
I realise that with me behind the camera it would be easy to think with no photos I am not really there so.....
here is a self portrait in one of our garden mirrors.... which needs a little spring clean!!

This lovely hunt is being followed by a yummy BBQ, cooked by the best BBQ chef in the world, David!!
