A new church in Alachua just had their 1st annual Egg Drop this past weekend. They were supposed to drop eggs from hot air balloons (hence the name “Egg Drop”) but it was too windy on Saturday so they scattered eggs in a field for an Easter egg hunt for the kids. It was so much fun!!
We got Cori this sweet Easter basket this year. I immediately thought of her the moment I saw it. I’m planning on getting her name embroidered on it so it can be her lifetime Easter basket. I wanted to get a matching one for Finley, but then I thought about the possibility of having more girls SO I decided I’d buy each kid their own basket at their own time so each one is special is it’s own way!
Cori did a great job hunting those eggs. She thought they were balls, which is probably why she was so excited about collecting them. The girl is OBSESSED with balls at the moment!
Cori’s good friends Aaron and Claire met us at the Egg Drop. Here is a picture of Cori and Claire as they hunted for eggs.
Here are the three of them strolling around after the hunt was over. Cori and Aaron rode together in our new DOUBLE BOB!! It’s a 2009, but in GREAT condition! I’m so excited about it and can’t wait for Finley to get here so she can ride in it too! We got it for 1/2 the retail price on Craigslist! Can’t beat that! On a side note – the family we bought it from are missionaries and were moving to the Philippines with their 2 sweet little girls. He is an aviation missionary and she is related to Nate Saint who was also an aviation missionary. Nate Saint is the one who flew the plane into the jungle of Ecuador (where I’ve been on a mission trip before) to bring the news of Christ. There is a movie based off his story called End of the Spear. I’ve actually been to Nate Saint’s house in Ecuador. SO COOL!
David snagged this picture of Cori holding Aaron’s hand. I thought it was so precious! She is such a lovey little girl! :)
We had such a great time out as a family and can’t wait for Easter next weekend! Unfortunately, our family picture didn’t turn out as I’d hoped, but we did get good pics of Cori with her mommy and daddy separately! Whatever works, right?!
