Such a collection of special moments for Easter 2020 as I set out cleaning up the garden to create an easter egg hunt for Lily. I ordered these super cute easter garden signs to make finding the eggs easier (she is only 2.5 years), mowed the lawn, painstakingly picked out all the weeds on the lawn (blisters for my efforts), and cut away a ton of growth at the back to try and make a path all the way around. I under estimated how much work this would involve but in the process created a magical little tree hideout and got to spend loads of quality time with Lily in the garden meeting ants, snails, worms and bees🐜🐝🐞🌺🌼🌳
I love reminiscing on some of my own memories that are coming back to me as I experience the different stages of Lily growing up. Vague memories of sitting in trees creating my own world inside my head, playing with barbies or lego in random spots in the garden that were perfect for this world I had created. Usually near a rad rock feature, under a small bush or waterfall. I love making these magical spaces for her and being a part of her discovery of life.
She was so cute during her first Easter egg hunt, turning to go back inside after finding the first egg, and then the second. Eventually getting the idea that there were more to be found under every bunny or easter egg sign and absolutely loving the excitement of the game, as we all do!
In the end her little basket was overflowing and she happily made her way back inside to take full advantage of this chocolate wonderland situation she found herself in. Don’t worry, she only gets one or two a day! Later in the afternoon we had a braai and virtual dance party with Claudia and Breagh 💚
Perfect end for a beautiful Easter weekend in the sun 🌞
