Easter Egg hunts!

We started the day at a local Easter egg hunt. Despite starting a new hunt every 20 minutes, the kids didn't get many eggs on their own- many thanks to the kind egg donors who generously shared their plastic eggs with my daughters! Tonito must have scared people in his kung-fu costume, because he was able to fill up his basket quickly and easily.
After the Easter egg hunt, we got ready for dinner with friends: the girls helped me make tres leches cake (no eggs!) and fill plastic eggs with cheerios and chocolate bunny crackers.
Vivi and Maya are so cute together- the oldest sister/younger sister roles are emerging with Vivi inventing all sorts of fantasy play and Maya happily following and doing everything Vivi orders, er I mean says. Maya worships her older sister, thinks she is also 5, and wants and likes everything Vivi does. Vivi loves having a playmate that is so willing to participate in rescue lemur games, dress-up in princess clothes, or pretend to be a cheetah.

Dinner with friends is even better when the kids are the same ages- AND get along!:) Gabriel is in Vivi's class, and Rebecca is the exact age as Maya- they play really well, have a lot of fun, and even speak Spanish together.
