The Easter Bunny!

I have just returned home from 10 days at Broadbeach, Gold Coast for the Easter Vacation.
It was so lovely to have lots of family spending their holidays in the same area as we were. The boys had a great time on the beach, playing tennis, in the park, swimming in the pool ... the list goes on! And in true Queensland style, the weather was simply amazing!
I'm even sporting a bit of a tan - woohoo!

We celebrated Easter at the Gold Coast with a traditional egg hunt first thing in the morning with as many cousins and friends as we could text. We knew the Easter Bunny would be coming as the kids had found a carrot in the garden a couple of days earlier and then it was half eaten the following day. They were even more excited when they found the entire carrot missing from the garden just 20 minutes after they had gone swimming in the pool - UNBELIEVABLE!

Joshua was screaming with excitement when he found a pair of Thomas The Tank Pyjamas left by the Easter Bunny for him !



And they couldn't run fast enough to fill their baskets!





Their baskets were exploding.




So, now to get back into some serious scrapping - I have heaps to catch up on.
Hope your Easter was relaxing too!

Oh Leanne - you are so lucky - you have such a beautiful family and extended family by the sounds of it! That hunt looks fabulous. I'm glad you had great weather. We were down there the week before Easter - you know when it was rainy weather - not so perfect Qld weather for us unfortunately. I can't wait to see your layouts on these.
