Easter in Atlanta.

A few weekends ago (2?) I went to Atlanta to spend the weekend with my dad and stepmom Bex for Easter and for my dad's bday.  The weather there was absolutely amazing, and I got a chance to hang out with my cousin's adorable 3 year old Dylan.  It was fun reliving my childhood through him and doing all the Easter things I loved to do.

We did an Easter egg hunt with him -- and even included the highly coveted silver egg!  (It was always the prized piece of any kid, and inside was a number for the BIG basket of prizes you would win.. which always meant, more candy!)  For him, we did a scavenger hunt* for a basket filled with sidewalk chalk, a kickball, and of course.. sweets.

We also dyed eggs -- and fingers -- which was also a lot of fun.  He got really into it, and thanks to moi did not get any on his clothes (a first ya'll). 

I never get to go back to my kid roots a lot, so this was lots of fun.  And how cute is he?  Such a cheese ball.  Thank you to HMP for the pics I jacked off facebook. 

*As my parents will tell you, scavenger hunts were the bee's knees when I was a kid.  I asked (demanded? probs more accurate) that the Easter Bunny/Santa/Tooth Fairy have at least one gift that was hidden.  I was given a treasure map (strangely in Moms' handwriting.. hm.) and went all over the house following every last detail.  It was the highlight of the holiday.
