On Easter Sunday my OH's parents hosted their annual Easter celebrations with lots of lovely food with all the family and of course the highlight for the grandchildren, an Easter egg hunt. There are 7 grandchildren all together and there were seven eggs each to find that the 'Easter bunny' had hidden for them.
However, what has really made this Easter a bit more special is the birth of some slightly belated Easter chicks! My OH's parents have about 40 chickens and even some quails now and it's been brilliant for Burton to learn about where eggs come from, to help feed the chickens, collect the eggs and more recently to learn how chicks are born.
Burton's Grampy has been incubating some fertile eggs for a couple of weeks and last night one hatched, just before we went home.
We were invited back this afternoon so that Burton could hold a chick in his hands. When we arrived five more eggs had hatched and Burton was very egg-cited (sorry!) to see them, and being allowed to hold one was amazing for him
So an Easter full of Easter eggs, a visit from the Easter bunny and some Easter chicks being born - all in all an egg-cellent time was had.
