Heather broke the rules by helping Emily out. Emily just stood there looking confused and scared so after collecting just a few eggs she was happy to be done.
I had to bribe Connor with computer time so that we would go on his egg hunt. I know it's weird to bribe your child with more computer time just so he'll go out and collect candy that isn't even good for him! I knew he'd be glad he did, and he was. Even if they were a little tentative at first, the kids were all happy to get out of the car for a while and run around.
We were nervous that the Easter Bunny would visit our house even though we weren't there. The kids were very excited when they got into the car after lunch at McDonalds and saw that the Easter Bunny had found our car and left baskets! That Easter Bunny is pretty smart. Even Holly was excited about her little lamb from the Easter Bunny.
The rest of the drive down was pretty uneventful. But this was my favorite pic from the day. Here's how Heather decided to travel. Driving with four kids and three adults in a van for 12 hours can be a little much. She coped by hiding out under the blanket to watch a movie. Whatever works!
