Holiday Happiness

I *almost* didn’t go to the Easter egg hunt at Jake’s daycare.

It was hunt #2 for the season (we’d already gone to the one hosted by our church) and seriously, sometimes it feels like there can be an overkill of holiday activities for the kids.

We'd already made the effort to attend one activity as a family and had a great time, and we’ll be doing some fun Easter things at home on Sunday, and we’ll be going to my parents' house after that, so why do we need one more thing? Plus he probably won’t remember if I’m there or not, he’s not even walking yet to be able to pick up any eggs, and {insert another lame excuse here}.

In spite of my parental pessimism, something made me go. I wasn’t sure what it was.

But looking over my photos, I now know: it was this happy, beautiful face. That is always worth the effort. Bring on the overkill.

What Easter activities do you have planned for the family this weekend?
