Easter Sleepover

As a family we had decided to have a sleepover at Grandma's and Grandad's. This of course involved us, Aunty Fara and Uncle Andrew, the cousins - Callum, Jesse and Olivia, Great Grandma, and since it was at their house, Grandma and Grandad.

So... Good Friday was the day we kick started our Easter celebrations. This meant heaps of fun for the kids but also a bit of R&R for the grown-ups (somewhere amidst the chaos!). During the exchanging of Easter gifts, Liam was given water balloons and the next thing we knew... this happened.

They all had a blast. Even Ethan and Olivia who eventually got the hang off it.

Later that night the kids had the Easter story read to them by Great Grandma. To say they all sat nicely and listened intently is an exaggeration, but they tried their best. I'm sure of it.

The next morning involved the Easter Egg Hunt. This mad, crazy free-for-all tradition had the kids running in all directions looking for the hidden booty...CHOCOLATE!!! Thankfully they all ended up with reasonably even numbers (although insane amounts) of little chocolates between them.

As this day ends on a sugar high =), we would like to wish all a very happy Easter.
