Easter Weekend - Part Two - Egg Dying

Second Up - Easter Egg Dying - Friday night

My sister gets down right giddy when it's time for egg dying and I think that has rubbed off on my nephew. At nearly 14 years old he still enjoys it. He sang a funny song about narwhals which made the kids laugh as they dipped their 2 dozen eggs into dye. How kind of my sister to offer to prepare a meatless dish, provide the eggs and dying equipment, and allow the kids to make a mess of things.

We stayed out a little too late and this little bean fell asleep en route to bed. 


More to come. Stay tuned for Saturday's events including T Rex's first soccer team play.

Looking forward to reading about the rest of your Easter weekend. I'm glad your children enjoyed the library. Our library has a weekly reading time for babies and toddlers, but it falls during my daughter's nap time.

It's funny how you don't take a "little" thing like getting all the dye and eggs ready for little ones to make a mess at your house now that you know all that it entails. Your nephew sounds like such a great "big brother" type of influence on the kids. Fourteen can be such a hard age!

And also, what a treat it is to have your comments in my inbox my friend even when I haven't visited as often as I should. I cherish each and everyone of your thoughts.

We missed egg dying this year since we were on a trip but I do enjoy it. Maybe we'll do it anyway even though we're "late."
