Yesterday, we celebrated Easter Sunday and in the afternoon we took you out on your first Easter egg hunt. Since it was a beautiful day out with plenty of sunshine albeit a chilly breeze, your Papi and I decided to go down to the lake where there is a lot of open space and many opportunities to hide chocolates and eggs for you to find and discover. As it was your first time, initially you had no idea what this was all about but you caught on quickly. But soon you had as much fun looking for those eggs and Easter bunnies as when we go swimming. While on our way to the lake, you started picking up eggs and chocolates, hiding around corners, in the bushes and the grass. That is when you realized what an Easter egg hunt was all about. You became so excited and were looking around everywhere. Your Papi and I were so happy to see you this happy and enthusiastic. You were screaming and jumping out of joy whenever you saw an egg or chocolate bunny.
At the lake, we continued the hunt. And when you saw my basket empty, you wanted to give me your eggs and chocolates. That was very sweet of you, young man. I am so proud of what you have become. I hope you will continue to be this caring and sweet as you grow older.
When your basket was full, you told your Papi that you were finished hunting. I jokingly asked if you wanted to eat all your chocolates already and you said to wait until we are home. You acted like a grown-up man. So funny and cute and sometimes it makes me sad. I do not want you to grow up so fast. I want to enjoy this stage for a longer time until I am ready. But I guess, I will never be ready.
After a few hours, we left the lake and you were so happy. Whenever we saw people passing by, you were eager to show them how full your basket was. You wanted to let everybody know that you had completed your Easter egg hunt. We are so glad that you had a great time yesterday. Looks like this is going to become a tradition in our family. You, me and papi!
P.S: From now on, I will be dedicating all my blog entries to my little man Dane!
Live, Love and Laugh
