Easter egg hunts and camp fires

We celebrated Easter a little unconventionally this year.  Two busy families and a scheduling mishap and we ended up planning a spring camping trip for Easter weekend.  We couldn't have asked for better weather.  In fact, I think we'll try a spring trip every year now.

I was warm (70's), sunny and perfect for camping.  There were no bugs and the camp sites were relatively open.  The trails were packed with families trying to enjoy some of the first warm days of the year but once we got a few miles from the visitor center, the people thinned out. 

After we returned from our hike I figured it would be a good time for an Easter egg hunt with Abby.  I didn't go crazy, just 6 eggs conveniently filled with Ryan's favorite candies.  She needed a little help from Daddy about the "point" of the whole thing but at about egg #5 she got it.  Then, when she realized there was something sweet inside, well, all bets were off.

Next year, the Easter egg hunt is on!  I'm excited that she's finally starting to understand and enjoy holiday traditions.
