We had a fun Easter! Hayden helped me dye some eggs. He really enjoyed putting the color tablets into the water, but apart from that he lost interest in the actual egg coloring and was more interested in all the stickers and other things that came in the egg coloring kit.
Saturday we went to Grandma and Grandpa’s and he got to play with his cousins Jesse and Robby. He loves going there and playing with all the different toys. We were able to coax him outside to play some soccer with the boys for a while, but as everything outside-related is with Hayden at the moment, it only lasted a short time until he was lured back in by the thought of all the toys that weren’t being played with.
Sunday when we woke up we saw the Easter bunny had been to our house while we slept, and he left Hayden candy and presents and hid the eggs we had colored! He had a great time finding the eggs and was very excited about his presents. He got a scooter, soccer goal (not sure if that was more for him or Daddy?), and a couple of little cars. He really enjoyed his scooter and soccer goal that day, but it’s been difficult to get him outside again to play on them since. (I’m shaking my head in disbelief as I type that.)
We also planted some seeds for Hayden’s Sesame Street garden. He has three little Sesame Street kits to grow tomatoes, watermelon, and peppers. They are actually doing really well so far in their starter kits! We’ll see what happens once they are transplanted.
Later in the day we went to Grandpamans and Grandma G’s for Easter dinner. We had a lovely time and great food there. Toward the end of the visit Hayden tripped and banged his head on a low ledge. It seemed a pretty hard hit and we all felt really badly for him (I think we were all ready for a bit of blood when it happened), and somehow he got away with only a small bruise.
