Easter Eggs

He is Risen! 
Baby Bear is here! 

With so much to celebrate and savor in the past week, I am taking full liberty to relive it via blog posts over the next few days.  The kids and I have taken it upon ourselves to make sure the Easter celebrations continue.  Yesterday we had three repeat egg hunts in our backyard to relive the Easter excitement.  Baby Bear and I played the Easter Bunny while E-Bear and G-Bear (sort of) hid their eyes.  Then Baby Bear and I got to watch from a lawn chair as the hunters found the eggs.  It was a hoot.

Needless to say, I think our hard boiled Easter Eggs are a few of the best loved ever.  And to think they started out as just ordinary eggs on Saturday....

...but E-Bear and G-Bear took care of that:

Ready for eggs!

Egg monster, E-Bear, ready for action.

Baby Bear, yawning for moral support.

 Have you ever tried to wait for eggs to finish in the dye??  I mean, the suspense is killer!

The beautiful finished products:

 We even added glitter...

E-Bear and G-Bear did a great job.  Even Baby Bear was impressed.  

After four hunts, the eggs are now looking a little worse for wear, with multiple cracks and less glitter than when the started.  But, oh, have we had fun.
