Bailey's Hunting Easter Eggs (sort of)

This morning our little town of Queen Creek put on a big Spring Celebration at one of the parks, and it including Easter egg hunts, bouncy toys, live music, and a lot of fun! Now I do know that Bailey can't actually hunt and pick up the eggs, but as I told Clinton many times...that's not the point. The point is that it is her 1st Easter and we need to at least have pictures of her celebrating it for the 1st time. So we went to the park and met up with Blake, Liz, & Finn, and Melissa & Reese for the Easter Egg Hunts. The 0-2 age group was first and yes I did run with Bailey and her Easter basket to the back of the field to grab her a couple of eggs. I don't have any pictures of that (though I'm sure it was a sight to see), because Clint was back watching the stroller and I took the camera with me. I thought maybe I could find a spot with a few eggs to sit her down and have her try to grab one and I would take a picture, but let's be honest the hunt was over in about 30 seconds and I was lucky I got her 5 eggs at all! We stayed to watch Reese do the next hunt and she made out pretty good! Melissa ran with her and I followed to take pictures...we got some good shots and she had a great time! Watching her made me even more excited for when Bailey is old enough to understand and do all of these things! But until that day we will be cheesy parents taking our child to these activities even if it is just for the pictures!

She is seriously the cutest thing I have ever laid eyes on! I mean I know I have one cute kid myself, he is the little hunk, but I mean come on! Your breaking my heart bails! Kiss her chubby cheeks for us!

Too bad there is no pictures of you running to get eggs, I am glad your brother decided to do that with gabe the first year and spear me the bad pictures!

She is darling! And I love her headband. Where did you find it? Unlike our first, our second daughter is a baldy... I'm new to this headband scene.

That really was so much fun! It's too bad Blake insists on torturing our son...although, he does make a cute pirate!!
