...Easter egg hunting and egg bashing
Today has been lots of fun. Easter Sunday at my folks is a tradition that we all get ridiculously excited about, and today did not disappoint. At last the sun came out and for a couple of hours- it actually felt like Spring. For lunch we ate roast lamb, and rhubarb crumble with plenty of custard. Then the Easter bunnies (my dad and step-mum) came, and hid hundreds of chocolate treats all around the garden-and we were off, baskets in hands and eyes on stalks. The kiddos did very well this year, and we didn't do too badly either.
Next came egg bashing. This involves taking hard boiled eggs, painting them with bright and pretty colours and coating them in varnish. Then, you all stand in a circle and take it in turns to 'bash' each other's eggs. Once both ends of the egg are cracked, you are out. My dad won. Happy times.
I hope your day was also full of family fun and chocolate scoffing. Wishing you all a very happy Easter!
