On the hunt.

This weekend Roxy went to her first Easter egg hunt at our church that she could participate in.  Last year we went, but she was way to young to hunt eggs.  I was so proud of her.  When she was approached by the Easter bunny, she didn't cry or whimper.  She waved, then clapped, and then walked right up to him and gave him a big hug!

We had lots of fun visiting with Samantha and Waverly who joined us for the egg hunt.  As most of you know, Waverly is Roxy's best friend and they spend time together at the same sitter's house.  The girls were so happy to see each other - they had to hug and pat and play!

The girls had a snack of fruit, cupcakes, and cheese puffs and then it was off to the sanctuary to hunt eggs. 
The weather outside was a bit unfriendly to the task at hand. 

As a side note, Russ had been working with Roxy to show her how to hunt eggs.  He was doubtful that we would be successful at the egg hunt because when he'd hide eggs at home and ask her to find them, her reply was "All gone."

When they opened the doors to the sanctuary and Grandmomma pointed out the first egg, Roxy knew exactly what to do.  She picked it up, put it in her basket, and was on the lookout for more.  When all of the eggs had been found, Roxy decided she would "find" them in other's baskets.  Luckily, I was able to stop her before she managed to take anyone else's. 

After the egg hunt was over, Roxy and Waverly opened the eggs to find all the goodies they'd found.  They played together and Roxy shared her necklaces with Waverly.  Waverly shared some candy with Roxy.  I think they both had a great time! 

I'm blog-hopping today with the Take It From Me girls.  Why don't you link up with us today?
