“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”
This year I am taking part in Living Arrows, a weekly photography project taking photos of my boys week on week, last week was our photos were all about the melfie. Which is a mum selfie for those who didn’t know. Well at least I think it is.
This week, with it being Easter tomorrow, is all about egg hunts. Cadbury egg hunts to be exact. With my mum landing with a suitcase fit to bursting with all manner of goodies from creme eggs to mini eggs to the coveted actual real life Cadbury chocolate egg it seemed only right that we should set up our own mini egg hunt around the compound.
And turn the boys into bunnies in order to do so.
With the four year old solemnly informing me he was going to find all of the chocolate eggs first because he could sniff them out, just like bunnies do apparently, off we set. Sunshine beaming down and me panicking that they’d all be melted before we found them.
Luckily we found some straight away on our doorstep, wasn’t that clever of the Easter bunny? With the thrill of chocolate in the air, off we went with renewed passion. The baby trying his hardest to lick the chocolate through the foil as we meandered down the road.
Looking super cute with his determination to get through the chocolate foil, nonetheless the four year old urged him on as he sped on his bike down the road ready for the egg hunt. He was desperate to find the rest of the eggs, and his poor brother didn’t get much of a look in.
He tried so hard to be patient and to show the little one where to pick the eggs up but excitement seemed to mount each time and he couldn’t help but pick them up and put them in the basket. At least he let his brother carry the basket though!
With a full basket and a look of longing in two little boys eyes we sped back home to indulge on some of our spoils, a small pack of mini eggs each later and the chocolate successfully transferred back to the fridge to harden back up after being melted in the sun, I can safely say that they had a lot of fun.
