Ethan has made some wonderful friends here. We don't even call them a group. They're a gang! The four of them go to school together, and hang out during the week. Even their teachers call them the "gang".

Over Easter, us mums we trying to figure out what to do for the whole week with no school. Last summer we formed a mini-camp and everyday the kids did different activities. So we decided to keep up with the camp - Easter Edition.

To keep up with the Easter theme, the kids did all kinds of Easter activites over the week. They painted eggs, made little chicks, baked...... Then on the Thursday, Vanessa threw a little party for the kids. Filled with cookies, and, of course, chocolate! I think we still have some chocolate left.

And if chocolate at Vanessa's wasn't enough, we decided since we were here for Easter this year, we'd do a little something.

Easter Sunday Ethan had a few of his mates over for an Easter Egg Hunt. There was about 10 kids in total, and parents to enjoy an Easter brunch. The kids had a blast searching the garden for little plastic eggs, and they were even more surprised to find little chocolate eggs in the plastic ones!

Scott thinks the egg hunt was too easy. The kids found all the eggs within 15 min, while when he was younger, his mum would hide eggs and months later they would be finding some they'd missed. I'd like to point out that they kids are still 2 years old, and they did have the parents assist in the egg hunt!

Once the kids found the eggs, and began devouring the chocolates, they were given yet another surprise when they discovered there was a basket of chocolates on the food table. (I don't think they noticed the chicken nuggets in shapes of the Easter Bunny). And, no party would be complete without party bags at the end, filled with, what else but, chocolate!!!!

I seriously think we have enough chocolate to last us till next Easter!
