So I just have to tell you how much fun our Easter Saturday was. Easter is one of my favorite holidays simply because our traditions are amazing. If you need some Easter traditions- check it out.
We start the morning off with a good old fashion easter egg hunt.
Then we come inside and color eggs. Boston told me that this was his favorite part of the day. Man, that little boy loves to color! He just zones right in.
Then we head outside to play some baseball. A Smith family tradition they take very seriously.
Then we come back inside and have our egg race. Before I became a Smith I had never heard of this before. They made a track years ago out of cardboard boxes and every year we race our eggs down the stairs. They set up a bracket and everything- it’s totally legit. Some years the shell will roll off the egg and the yolk will pop out and go flyin’, other years those little eggies are tuff and we can race them over and over! Super fun tradition. You’ve got to try it next year!
And if your little boy loses, this just might happen…
And Brian won. What’s new. He win’s everything, drives me nuts ha ha!
After that we head on outside and roast hotdogs and marshmallows. And when it gets dark? We have the adult easter egg hunt! I wasn’t able to take any pictures but it’s seriously so fun. You’ll never go back to a regular egg hunt once you’ve done this one.
Every family member picks a colored egg out of a bag of different colored eggs. I chose purple. So my goal was to find my 8 purple eggs hidden outside before anyone else found their own colored eggs. The Smith’s have a large yard so it took awhile to find our eggs! All the adults had flashlights and were running around like crazy people. The only rule is that you’re not allowed to sabotage anyone else’s eggs and the first person to find all 8 eggs wins $20. We’re all poor so that was a huge incentive to be super speedy.
And in the morning? Well, it’s Easter Sunday and the Easter bunny comes bearing gifts.
I actually woke up with a migraine and had to skip church. Throwing up, super sick- the whole bit. I don’t know what it is with me and migraines lately but I can’t shake em! So the whole family picture in our Easter get-tups just didn’t happen this year. I was so super bummed. Luckily I have a fabulous husband who can hold down the fort like a boss. Sure do love that man.
What are your family traditions? Have you ever had an easter egg hunt in the dark? Or a migraine?! haha! Stay tuned for tomorrows super awesome giveaway!
