bunnies, "babies" and baskets!
This past weekend we had our annual Easter party in our backyard. We were so lucky to have the most gorgeous weather Sunday afternoon! Could not have asked for anything better for a backyard party!
I have mentioned before how much I truly love Spring and Easter. And, our Easter party is another favorite time. Our tradition has been the kids gather in the backyard and decorate eggs together. Then, it's time for the egg and spoon relay race and some Easter treats! However, this year, I decided to add two little "surprise guests" to the party! Let me introduce you to "Rufus" and "Pancake," also known as the cutest little baby bunnies ever!
The bunnies were a huge it at the party. Just FYI..... our family has not acquired new pets. I actually found a breeder who allows photographers to "borrow" her bunnies around Easter for photos. So, I asked if we could "borrow" them for an Easter party and she agreed. So much fun to watch the children arrive in the backyard and spot the little bunnies!
Of course, we did dye eggs as well enjoy the annual egg and spoon relay. And, we had a "guess how many maltballs in the jar" contest where "Ms. Park" was our big winner! Her prize.... a giant chocolate bunny, of course! (which she gave to her two children) We also enjoyed Easter cupcakes, white chocolate dipped giant marshmallows, cheddar chick-a-dees, lemon cookies, fruit kabobs, cheese cubes, chicken salad baskets and lemonade. The perfect spring day party menu!
