Our Geeky Easter Wrap Up.

I hope you all had a fabulous Easter holiday. Easter always reminds me of the time when Nate, who was five and in Catholic school, was getting a lesson about Jesus' Resurrection. He raised his hand and in all seriousness asked the Nun "So Jesus was a Zombie?". I heard the story later from the nun herself who seemed pretty amused.

Anyway...

Nate's Easter basket was actually a Yoda Tin Box that he can use for lunch box.  He also got some Graham Crackers, Peeps and a Hershey bar so that he could try an experiment he's been wanting to do for weeks...

Peep S'mores.
Oh my goodness they were good!
Nate felt like I needed an Easter Basket of my own, and he bought the stuff with his own money (awwww).  I had given up soda and chocolate for Lent, so my Easter treats were fittingly a Hershey Bar and a bottle of Diet Dr. Pepper.   Yes, that's Ralphie in Aunt Clara's Bunny Suit watching over the goodies.


Next we went to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.  It was beautiful, but way less educational than I thought it would be.  Granted, we were only there for about an hour and spent most of that time taking pictures, but save for an "experimental garden" where they were growing new types of tulips, there wasn't much in the way of tulip info.  It was just a lot of  "Look at all the pretty flowers!"
After that we headed up to Super Grandma's and had a nice egg hunt (I supplied the super hero stickers and smencils!) and then we headed back home. 

We ran out of time this year and did not dye any eggs, which was sad.  It's one of my favorite projects to do with the kids and I wanted to do all natural dyes from vegetables and fruits this year, but it just didn't work out.

How was your Easter?
