First Easter Egg Hunt

I went to my very first Mom's Club yesterday. It was really fun. It was nice to meet so many moms with kids the same age as mine. It was an Easter social. Since it was my girls' first Easter egg hunt, I thought I'd put them in their new dresses. They looked so cute! They just didn't want me taking any pictures. I don't know what the deal is lately but whenever I pull out my camera, Natalie covers her face and Heidi runs away. It's funny now but super frustrating when I'm trying to take a pictures!! I need some creative tips to get my kids to smile for me or at the very least stay put while I take a picture!! I've been trying for months to get a good shot of the two of them together and still no luck! At least I was able to get some cute ones of them by themselves.

My girls absolutely loved Moms Club! They had so much fun. Natalie loved the craft table. She spent pretty much the whole time there decorating paper eggs with stickers. Heidi loved all the kids and all the toys. She just did her own thing for most of the time. I think her favorite part of the day was getting to eat an Easter egg cookie with sprinkles! I wasn't sure if they would understand the whole concept of hunting for eggs but I shouldn't have worried. Nat was so excited! She could barely wait for them to hide the eggs. She ran everywhere, picking up the eggs and putting them in her basket. She actually dumped some of the candy out of her eggs cause she didn't know what they were. :)

Heidi loved looking for eggs too. She didn't want to hold the basket though. She wanted me to hold the basket while she found the eggs and then she would walk over and put them in the basket. When I actually gave her the basket to hold she dropped all the eggs but she made sure she picked them up really quick before any of the other little kids picked them up! I was really surprised that they both figured it out so quickly. I just didn't think they were old enough. They proved me wrong! All Natalie can talk about is when she gets to do it again. :)
