Egg thief

This was the first year Peeper truly did an Easter egg hunt—and she made up for lost time.

Our friend had hidden dozens of plastic eggs in her back yard. We let the kids loose, and Peeper delighted in each egg she found.

At first, she put them all in Eric’s pockets, since we forgot to bring her a basket. (Noobs.) Then a one-year-old friend lent her his, and all bets were off.

Peeper ventured into the baby area, where eggs were simply strewn across the lawn. “I found SO MANY EGGS!” she yelled, showing her full basket to anyone who would listen.

Instead, she found another kid’s basket and without any hesitation emptied the entire thing into her basket.

You gotta admit, she’s resourceful.

To all who celebrate, happy Easter!

    Ha ha love the story about her eggcitement and egg heist! Though, you have to admit with a basket of that size what kid wouldn’t want to see it full to the brim! In my childhood I remember a much smaller basket with that shiny plastic grass as filler on top of that. Glad you made great memories for the holiday!

    Awe, how sweet! Easter is so much fun with itty bittys. And at that age egg hunts are so precious and innocent! Even with egg thieves 😉
