SPRING BREAK! This was such an adorable shot, had to snatch a memory!
As you can see it only takes a moment for the perfect pose to break up 🙂
Family Sand Castle! Hahaha! It’s hard to make the hang-loose sign AND smile at the camera!
So I’ve mentioned in past posts that we try to keep the mainstream North American “Easter” traditions (ie:candies, eggs, bunnies, chicks, non-religious “Easter” movies) separate from our actual Easter celebration. We still dye eggs, have egg hunts, some treats and use some of the cute movies and baby animals but we do that either on the first day of Spring or the weekend directly following it. We also use the beginning of Spring as a way to explain the symbolism of the Resurrection. That way there is plenty of time for the kids to enjoy but be ready for our more spiritual approach to the Easter Celebration.
The sun was literally just coming up, which I’m assuming is why Fiesta looks so dreamy eyed;)
This year we had the opportunity to actually go on a family trip to the beach for our Spring Break and Spring Celebration. We mostly just enjoyed being together and having fun and enjoying the beauty of God’s creations. But we also had an egg hunt at the beach!
A-HA! I SEE ONE!!!!!
Look what I found!
OOOOHHHHHHH!!!!!!! I found one tooooooo!!!!!!
First matching beach hats (Gotta love Mexico! About 75 cents each! 🙂
Creative chaos….can you spot the Minion eggs?
When we got home we invited over some friends to decorate real eggs and had an egg hunt all together afterwards. The kids really had so much fun and as usual it was fun learning more about our Mexican friends Easter traditions and sharing ours with them.
I think the Moms had as much fun as the kids:) (so much fun I can’t take an in-focus picture, right;)
We kind of like glitter:)
What? It’ll break if I play with it like a ball?
The hunt is on….as you can tell the boys are pretty serious about it;)
Last egg found! Bittersweet victory….
They didn’t even wait to get back home to start eating them!
Our kiddos had plenty of fun and were all ready when Palm Sunday approached to learn more about the events leading up to Easter. Stay tuned for my next post on our Easter week Celebration!:)
