We abruptly stopped sleeping at 7am when two eager, dancing girls ran into our bedroom yelling “It’s Easter!!!!!”:
Apparently the Easter bunny did good.
By 10am, the Bunny Bash decorations were in place, and the food was all cooking:
Two eager bunnies Could Not Wait for their friends to arrive:
At 11:30, we yelled “On your marks, get set, go!” and leaped out of the way as the adorable bunny-tail-clad kiddos sprinted hither and yon looking for the almost 300 eggs hidden around the yard:
Once the eggs were all found, we had some wildly energetic playtime (and I had a glass or two of wine). The line for BobBob’s monkey bars was constant, and the playstructure and pink car were never, ever empty:
On all counts, Bunny Bash 2011 was a huge, whoppin’, hoppin’ success.

Many, many thanks to the dream-team of cooks, decorators, fix-it and idea men, helpers, egg stuffers, photographers, and cleaner-uppers who helped make it happen:
In the end, every kid left with a bucket full of eggs, a huge smile, and a slightly bedraggled bunny tail. And Ro and Ree drove off into the sunset in their beloved pink car toting a ginormous pink bunny and a spare princess crown.
Then there was intense napping across the land. Now if that isn’t a happy Easter I don’t know what is.
