Today was the church Easter Egg Hunt. Or should I say Easter Egg Race??? There is no actual hunting, just a race to see who can get the most eggs the fastest (since they are all just laying out in the grass). And since Clayton goes with the older kids now, this basically means he manages to get a couple of eggs and the whole "hunt" is over. Thank goodness for my friends who formed a barrier around Clayton and shooed the other kids away so he could get more than one egg!! And since he doesn't eat candy (he does lick on it!), he really doesn't have to have many eggs, but it's really just the whole principle of the thing--I think I'll suggest we tweak the process next year . . . and even though he doesn't really eat candy, he wanted to open every egg and look inside just to take inventory of all of his loot!He loved the jumphouse (thank you, Tanya!):
But the best part of the day by far was that Clayton won the grand prize: a brand new bike! He is all about bikes right now and he had been eyeing this one all day. He was so excited when he actually got to sit on it! We've been looking at modified bikes for a while because he wants to ride every bike we see. Brian will have to take this one back to Wal-Mart because it's definitely for a bigger boy--it will be interesting to see what he does with one that has training wheels!
