Connor's First Easter Egg Hunt

Easter this year provided our family with a new first. And in true Stephanie fashion, I took more photos than I will ever ever imagine needing #momproblems. 

On Friday, the Mom group I'm a member of had our group Easter Egg Hunt. Connor has been practicing picking up (empty) plastic eggs and putting them in his bucket. Practice paid off because Little Guy did awesome. 

The hunt was at a local park so there was some play ground play before and after the race to find as many eggs as your little boy hands can handle.





Climbing, driving and sliding - a typical day at the park for Mr. Cox. When he was playing with the steering wheel, he kept saying "Beep! Go! Beep!". He is crazy about cars these days. Connor has recently mastered slides. And if he were to have it his way, we would do nothing but slide when we visit parks. He still isn't a fan of swings so maybe we can tackle that next!

When it was time for the hunt, Connor couldn't have been more excited... his face showcases he pure joy of being with friends and hunting for candy filled eggs. Nothing makes the babe happier than a day with friends and seeing a field full of potential.


Connor was able to snag 12 eggs. And because he is his father's son, he picked the biggest ones in the field. In doing so, we got plenty of playdough which has already been used a few times.





Connor snagged lots of goodies and didn't waste any time snagging a piece of chocolate. Dude loves sweets. The Easter hunt proved to me how much I just adore this age we are in. In the last few weeks, Connor has really grown and is learning and discovering so much. I'm exciting to see what this summer will be like with our adventurous guy. 

We hope you had a great Easter! As you can tell, we sure did!

  6. Haha it's funny we have the opposite problem with the park- swings, swings, swings. No slides. No climbing. I spend all my time pushing her in the swing, she's obsessed! Sounds like he had a great time!
