I am an Easter Newbie. I didn’t grow up celebrating easter because unlike Christmas it somehow didn’t spill out into the global secular diaspora. Although I do remember getting Good Friday and Easter Monday being a holiday at school but it was mostly a spring break of sorts.
So egg dyeing, easter bunnies and baskets were very foreign to me. But this year, it was all different.
We dyed some eggs. Bun didn’t really care for it too much but J and I had a lot of fun
Our favorite easter activity was to go to a Easter Egg Hunt at the Horace Wallace House in Chapel Hill. The house is the office of the Chapel Hill Historic Preservation society and is situated in one of the prettiest corners of the triangle. Unfortunately, the day was rainy and cloudy and muddy, but we still had a lot of fun at the hunt
OMG!!! Ugggggs as Bun would say.
He doesn’t say OMG but he does say Ugggs for Eggs
He was very serious about recycling the eggs, he didn’t really want to put them in his basket
You can see some of the details of the Wallace House
I let him taste un watered down super sweet lemonade.
After most of the legitimate participants had finished the Egg on a spoon race, they opened it up for all the babies and latecomers. So Bun decided to participate
That meant , I had to hold his arm up and walk alongside him
He did go around the full course though and only dropped the egg 4 times.
