Easter egg hunt

Easter did not finish for us until after our Easter egg hunt on Tuesday. I arranged for my coffee group and playgroup pals to meet up at Salisbury Park for extended Easter fun. The weather was perfect (and I will never complain of too much sun or it being too hot ever again). We had an impromptu picnic morning tea that everyone kind of threw together their snack boxes into a pile for the kids to share.

Then on to the main event - the hunt. I had brought along enough eggs to kill a small donkey, and we scattered them on the ground and hid them in the shrubbery along the fence line. Then it was 3, 2, 1 and go...

There were a few other kids at the playground besides our group so I got them to join in on the action too. There were plenty of chocolate eggs to go around!

It's lovely to see all the children enjoying themselves.

After the park a few of us went to the Rabbit Hole cafe on Jervois Rd. The kids played in the sandpit while we sat on the porch and had a spot of lunch.

It was my cue to leave when Kien took at bucketful of sand and dumped it inside the cafe all over their floor. I'm guessing it was probably not the first time a kid has done that as they swept it up pretty quickly.

We went to my friend Naadia's place in the afternoon and gave her kids the remainder of the eggs. It's just too dangerous having that much chocolate around in at my place when Kien has taken such a shine to the milky delicacy.
