Easter Egg Hunt

This morning we went to an Easter Egg Hunt in the gardens of the Musee de la Mode. Although we had to share the gardens with a Japanese film crew making an ad, the kids were able to take over one side of the park & went crazy looking for eggs & treats.
It has been a really interesting holiday year with Sophia, and great fun. She has really understood the joys of the holidays this year, starting with Christmas. She was perfectly satistied opening 3 or 4 presents & then playing with all of the new toys! It took days to get through everything! (only child!) Her birthday was the same, and it looks like Easter is going to be a blast. After needing some encouragement to break the sacred rules of the Paris parks (no walking on the grass and no playing in the bushes), Sophia went crazy looking for eggs. She very proudly carried her Dora sand pail, and tagged after Troy as he was slipping eggs & chicks into all kinds of creative places. She was able to stand her ground & beat out quite a few of the older boys to the eggs that were placed in her path. It was hard talking her into taking a break. She really enjoyed the hunt...
A big thanks to Message, the english speaking moms group in Paris that sponsored & organized the hunt today.
Getting a lift from Dad.

Is it a race? Can I beat her?
I found another one!
What is inside the chocolate? More chocolate of course...
