Two Easter Egg Hunts, One Saturday

What an exhausting Saturday!

The boys and I stayed super busy with not one, but two Easter Egg hunts today.

Why just the boys? Well, Gracie has officially aged out of all church hunts.  We had been going to Bryce's church egg hunts for the past few years since they allow up to age 5th grade.  Now that she is in 6th, she is super bummed, despite the fact that I reminded her she has done egg hunts nearly 11 years in a row until now!

So, first stop: Bryce's Church.  Tobias pretty much slept through the whole thing, but I was able to get a few pictures while he was in the stroller with the cute pair of bunny ears Grace nabbed for him

Typical Thomas with his focus issues didn't get nearly as many eggs as his friends, but he seemed happy with his basket half full.  And, mama was fine with a lot less candy in the house!

After meeting up with Daddy and Gracie who were having a daddy/daughter day at the mall (Gracie's choice!) for lunch.  Mommy and the two T's headed to egg hunt number 2 at our church.

Now, we have skipped our church's egg hunt most year's , as I didn't think it was fair to go to more than one (seemed a little greedy), but with it being Tobias' first egg "hunt," I wanted to share him with the people who know and love him in our congregation.

And, I was NOT disappointed! Tobias' first egg hunt was a picture perfect kind of event. And, by that I mean, there was no real hunting, but tons of perfect picture moments!! 

There was an actual "hunt" for kids 2 and under, and his big brother helped him find 20 eggs (that was the allotment per kid) while mama had fun with photo moments.

When it was his turn, Thomas even more quickly found his 20 egg allotment along with the other 7 & 8 year olds.

The rain had held off all day until Thomas' age group--which was the last group--but, he (nor the others) seemed to mind the sprinkles at all.

It was a great festive day, but this mama is EXHAUSTED! I forgot how much my Thomas is solo, much less adding another little person who needs constant attention at an event!

I'm still in disbelief that Gracie is in middle school and too old for egg hunts. It's just not real. Those two adorable boys must have had a great day!
