Though Friday went undocumented picture-wise, Saturday was our second day full of Easter activity! As soon as we all got up, we rushed out the door to Chilliwack for an egg hunt at a farm/orchard (the same place we enjoyed the pumpkin patch last fall). Tobias had found his eggs among blossoming apple trees and rolled them down the pipes in exchange for a treat bag.
After hunting eggs, we went and explored the many little Spring stations they had throughout the farm (I forgot to get a picture of the sheep with her two lambs!! So sad). But we got to see and pet chicks and ducklings. Kajsa was quite ready to dive into the box and go play with them. Tobias was really busy trying to process everything around him. He was thinking hard about all he was seeing (lambs, bunnies, hens, ducklings and chicks).
After the chicks, we tried to let him play in a huge “corn box” (like a sandbox but with big dried kernels of corn instead of sand). He was not ready for that weird sensation (though his mother was ready to climb in and start playing!). However, as soon as we turned the corner and introduced him to the hay maze, he was ready to never leave. He and Lyndon wove around the hay bales (and walked on top!) until we could persuade Tobias to explore even more.
We, of course, found farm machinery that Tobias had to immediately operate. He climbed up and went right to work. (Then he gave the next kid a turn while he had a photo op with Daddy.)
All this time, Kajsa was happily being pushed around in the stroller. However, as soon as we finished with the tractor and saw this bench swing, she started to go nuts, trying to lunge out of her seat (thank goodness for five-point harnesses. that is all). I was so surprised by her being so young but already so opinionated about what she wanted to participate in–she’ll sit by for the other stuff, but she definitely wanted to rock!
