A pink Easter table for this year!
Shades of pink and white hyacinths and tulips
cute pink polka dot napkins from Home Goods
The bunnies are old German candy containers- their heads twist off and the body is filled with candy.
And for dessert- sweet little rose cupcakes- filled with raspberry buttercream
accompanied by a salted caramel chocolate bunny! All from Jolly Good Fellows located
on the square in Lake Forest!
After that little feast- I wanted a nap- but oh no! Not for me today- with three little boys tugging-
"when's the Easter Egg hunt???"
So next it was time for the Easter Egg hunt!
Trust me- there was already enough sugar high happening- so the eggs were filled with
quarters and dollar bills! ( Four and six year olds" dream come true" for the dollar store!)
Bags in hand-
Ready- Set - Go!
After the Easter egg hunt- it was time to head to the beach to fly the kites!
So we gathered the 4 dogs- the kites- the kids and walked down to the beach! It was a beautiful sunny warm day- one of the first this year!

"Just keep me away from them- okay????"

Happy Easter everyone!
