Pre-Easter Celebration

With Ryan and I's vacation over Easter weekend we decided to celebrate a little bit early (Palm Sunday). While I was gone doing a photo shoot for Twigg with my very talented friend Alia (more on that later), Ryan headed to the park for the Ladera Ranch Spring Celebration aka Easter Activity.
Ryan told her that she could get her face painted and she wouldn't stop talking about it. She got to pick what she wanted from a book and what do you know, she picked Hello Kitty. Such a girl. Ryan then told her she was to sit very still and couldn't touch her face and her reply was, "Ok, I'll put my hands behind my back like this." No idea where she got that idea but it was perfect and she sat still and loved every minute of it!
This is her trying to show us her new piece of art and maintain eye contact-she still said, "Cheese".
Then Grandma Brenda came up for the rest of the day to celebrate with us. Just relaxing playing on Grandma's iphone on our new patio set (more on that later).
Then after hearing about coloring eggs all day from Camryn, we finally made her dreams a reality. Holidays are so much more fun with kids. It was like this was the coolest thing she had ever seen!

And of course the pink and blue ones were her favorite!
Then after dinner at The Habit we walked around shops and had cupcakes. Camryn picked this one out since it was pink and had sprinkles. She would have stuffed the whole thing in her mouth if we let her. This girl won't eat much, but she can pound her sweets. Like father like daughter!
Sunday the Easter Bunny came early and hid eggs for her to find. She just kept saying, "Why the Easter Bunny hiding eggs from me? Don't hide eggs from me Easter Bunny!"
She loved it and could have done this all day long. Note:this is the same Easter dress she wore last year-still so cute, so why not!
More surprises inside from the Easter Bunny-spoiled girl!
Don't know if it is because I am missing her already but I think this age is so fun and is definitely my favorite so far! Love this girl.
And my handsome hubs. Doesn't get better than this-such a fun warm spring weekend! Happy Easter!

I was thinking of her in the same dress last year and how much she has grown....well sort of. Still tiny, but taller. SO very smart and fun!

Kathy said...

How funny that she figured out how to sit so still all on her own! Can't wait to hear that cute voice and see that cute face in person!

Yes, aren't these things so fun to do? Love having kids! What cupcake place did you guys go to? I'm cupcake obsessed. Love the eyes in the hello kitty pic. I always try to get my kids to to that...head still, eyes look to me...but she did it all on her own! "Smart" girl!
