Sugarwing's mom ended up switching her plans, so we had our fairy grand child over night and all day. Dewdrop came over with her mom at dinner time, and we were able to find buckets full of eggs on the Fairy Berry Trail as the sun was setting.
And what beautiful weather we had! I'd thought I'd finish the banner I am working on for the Snow White blast coming up way too soon, but instead, I ran and played with Sugarwings all day and enjoyed the sunshine.
I was able to do some yard clean up too, and foofed the Fairy Berry Trail up for the season. Easter seems to be the time that we whip it into shape, just in time for hunting eggs the bunny left there.
Funny, how fast two little girls can find over 50 eggs. This was a quick run through the forest, with lots of squealing along the way. Dewdrop let out a yelp every time she spied an egg. And everything is a squealfest around Sugarwings anyway.
Although, the few pieces of chocolate I had on hand were the biggest hits when the eggs were open, of course. But, I do think that if there was nothing in them at all, it wouldn't have dampened the fun.
She enjoyed the dying too, although it didn't last long because she thought it was just as much fun to pour the dye out on the ground as it was to dip the eggs in. But they had plenty of glitter paints to add to the eggs once the dirt under the table was dyed.
Which was a great plan, considering that everyone had been playing outside and there was a bit of mud from the gardening project clinging to them. Plus, Dewdrop's fascination with pouring out the dye worked better out doors than it would have inside.
