Before I tell you more about the day, let me share some words about cake pops- they are hard to make! I've heard horror stories about the cake falling apart when dipped into chocolate and many other frustrations. Luckily I didn't have that problem, but apparently the chocolate I chose to melt wasn't a very good choice. It didn't stick well to the cake pops and was falling off in huge chunks. What gives?? I definitely want to try again and I think I'll write a "What I Learned About Cake Pops" post soon. At least they still tasted good!
Moving on to brunch! I had to hide the cake pops because someone couldn't wait to get her her hands on them. We had french toast, a rare treat in our house, on festive plates I picked up at Target a few weeks ago.
After breakfast we gave Miss A her Easter bucket. The pink Easter grass was a hit and covered our family room in seconds.
She also loved her Slinky, new sippy cup, and bunny book.
The rest of the day we spent at home and played outside, while I missed my family many miles away. Holidays can be the hardest days to be so far away. I hope to be there next year so Miss A can participate in our family egg hunt and have Easter dinner with my family. We did have an egg hunt of our own to attend, and she caught on to what was going on real quick!
When she realized the eggs were stuffed with hidden treasures she started to open them all up. She was very excited to find these play necklaces and immediately put them on.
