Ostara for us, thanks!

A few weeks back, we celebrated Ostara with some close friends. Ostara falls on the Spring Equinox--it's a celebration of spring--birds eggs, rabbits, plants in bloom. Due to our unseasonably warm March the trees were in bloom and the kids were able to hunt eggs without hats, scarves, mittens, and winter coats. 
It started with confetti filled eggs that they were supposed to crack on each other (Fion decided to crack hers on her own head), then a race to grab the eggs off the lawn, and finally a spring feast. 
It was good fun and great weather.
This weekend the in-laws are coming up and the kids will get to hunt eggs again--they're pretty pleased with the double-festivities. 
And as Fiona told me last night when I tucked her into bed "Nana and Papa are fun. I'm glad they are are coming". 
Have a great spring weekend, whatever you celebrate!
