Hippity, Hoppity….

Its not often that I combine a paid gig with an event on my own social calendar.  But when it comes to the lovely parties thrown by the Williamson twins, you simply don’t turn down an invitation.  Not when you come home to find it hanging on your doorknob!  (Sam is going to hate me for posting this, we’ve been talking about replacing our front door for years, but what a craft-tastic idea!)

So we followed the signs…

And found the most lovely refreshments awaiting us on her back porch.  Carolyn and Catherine made baskets for each of the children, complete with a plush bunny, bug finder and egg shaped sippy cup that my son tore into way too fast for me to photograph.

As a group, we jointly made two observations: 1.) the Easter egg sippy cup looked more like a friendly hand grenade and 2.) Michael’s jacket made him look like a game show host!

The kids waited patiently for Carolyn to open the gate to the courtyard and then the games/adorableness began!

The youngest of the hunters was also the smartest.  Just wait for the other kids to do the work and then steal their baskets!

The fun wasn’t over once the eggs were collected, a playhouse to color sat in the backyard along with big bouncy balls, bubbles and trees to climb.

Such a fantastic way to spend a Sunday morning with neighbors and friends.  We hope your spring has been every bit as hippity, hoppity, and happity so far…  (Oh, and I did make a slideshow!)
