We had a great Easter weekend.

The girls dyed some eggs.
Being as I'm a hippie and hate chemicals, we used good old vinegar and food coloring.

Mya was only interested in the color blue.

They turned out well.

The girls played outside while we cleaned up in the house.
Sophie picked out a new Easter dress during our Girl's Day.
(complete with stick-on nails and a fancy new clip)

While dad was outside hiding all the eggs, the girls got to dig through their baskets.

70+ eggs and 5 minutes later, we released them into the yard.
Sophie was a bit of a challenge to get any pictures of, being as she was running around at warp speed.
Mya quickly followed along after her.

After they filled their little buckets, it was time to check the loot.
I only bought one small back of candy, because I didn't want the children in a sugar coma for the next week. The rest of the prizes were stickers, stamps, tattoos, rings, etc.

As always, they put on all the tattoos in one sitting.
Luckily, I loaded up their baskets with a bunch more.

We spent the rest of the afternoon running about outside and enjoying the sunshine.
I made the girls some sidewalk paint (cornstartch & water).
Sophie enjoyed practicing her letters.

Mya hoarded any chocolate she could find, and squatted over the bag, devouring it like a rat.
That's mah girl.
