With the long Easter weekend, we took advantage and decided to make a quick trip to KC to see the Sedgwicks…and of course, do some shopping. We got there about 10 and decided to shop, eat and then shop a little more. One of the places we stopped was the Hallmark on Shawnee Mission Parkway. The “fun” thing about this Hallmark is that they always seem to have something going on. Today, it was the Easter bunny. Now, Rebecca is drastically different from her mom on this point…she LOVES dressed up characters. She was SUPER excited to give the bunny a hug, talk to her and ask her all kinds of questions. She was so in love with her that it caused a bit of drama while we were in the store.
After meeting the Easter bunny, MeMa and PePa took Rebecca back home and Sara and I hit up a few more stores. I needed to get my nook checked out at Barnes and Noble and we wanted to shop at a few stores at the Legends. We got a phone call that we needed to come home soon because Rebecca was ready to dye her Easter eggs.
The most exciting part (at least in my opinion) of coloring Easter eggs is dropping the tablets in the vinegar and watching them fizz and change colors. This was also a fun part for Becs. She loved dropping in and then alerting everyone as to what color the table turned the vinegar.
Then it was time to put in the eggs, let them sit (TORTURE for an almost 4 year old) and then pull them out. Surprisingly Rebecca was pretty good at pulling the eggs out of the cups…not so good (at first) at putting them on the paper towel gently, but she definitely got the hang of it. Tonight they will decorate them some more, with stickers and other fun things…but it was fun to be there with them when she colored the eggs.
