Not true, we still had fun, but I wish it hadn’t rained….
Easter parties need to be outside in the garden with a lot of games and activities, a full basket of eggs from the egg hunt, good food, even better desserts and running around with all your friends. I am happy we had all of that, just shorter than I imagined, since it started to pour half way through the party. Initially our wonderful big tree let us take shelter from the rain, but eventually the rain took over… It rained almost the entire rest of the afternoon and the party was transferred inside. Still nice, but not the same as outside. So, I want to share the first part of the party with all its carroty glory, the activities, the egg hunt, great food and even better friends.
It took me a while to decide which pictures to post, since we had so many great photos. Let’s start with carrots!

The Tables and Decoration
The Carrot Patch
The Activity Table
The children painted easter eggs, made play dough easter eggs or simply colored the carrot templates we had printed.
The Photo Props
The first picture actually looks beautiful. (the clean-up afterwards not so much).
I was a little sad about the games we did not play. We wanted to to an egg and sppon race, sack races, an easter treasure hunt and more…
I am glad we did have a successful easter egg hunt, which I will post separate. It was the highlight of the party for me…
We had some great helpers… A big Thank You to these special guys and also to our parents.
