Bubble Rocket

The Easter bunny brought Bridgette a very awesome Bubble Rocket for Easter this year:

The idea is that you fill the pan under the rocket with Bubble stuff (yes, that is the technical term) and when you stamp on the squishy pad (again, technical term) the rocket flies into the air and leaves a trail of bubbles in it's wake. Well, that's not exactly how it happens but then again, does anything really work like it's supposed too?

Anyway, we had fun trying to make it work and did manage to get some bubbles out of it:

The main problem was that the rocket just didn't want to fly very high. But it was fun trying and well worth the money the Bunny paid for it!

Easter Day

Easter came on a really nice day this year, luckily, and this little bunny got to hunt eggs at two different places:

All the above were from her hunt at grandmas.

The pretty Tulips I picked up at redners:

This is the Webkins Owl Bridgette got. She named him Chirascuro. In case you don't know, like most of my family, chiarascuro is an Italian art term that means light and dark. What 8 year old knows that?
The golden egg:

The message in the golden egg:

Hunting eggs at home:

The Easter Bunny hid this egg behind the tire but the wind decided to move it:

B was a little dissapointed that we did not go see the big Bunny himself this year. Not sure why, since we haven't gone to see him the past two years either. I think she may be trying to convince herself he is real...
Today she told me I should tell the Bunny she really liked the golden egg idea (there was a message in there to help her find her basket). I told her that I had his secret telephone number and I would let him know. She replied, "Well, if he has a telephone, he must be real." LOL! I love her reasoning!

A Few More From the Dyeing...

Sorry, I forgot to add these two to the post below!

Easter Eggs

We finally dyed Easter Eggs last night (nothing like waiting until the last minute!). We had a lot of messy fun and everyone wanted to get in on the action:

Doesn't Bridgette look smashing with a monocle?

I love this look on my face:
Notice the beautiful flowers on the table? I think they added a nice touch, especially since I got them at Redners for $3.99!
More on Easter later...
