Easter 2015

Easter was a wee bit different this year. We went to the Primary Easter egg hunt and picnic at our church the weekend before Easter.  Jakey and I filled 500 plastic eggs for this shindig!  We set up a few other games (beanbag toss, petanque, etc) and the kiddos all had a really good time.

It was fun to have a laid back event to visit with people.

And, of course, eat candy. 

Then, just before Easter, we packed up ye olde minivan and headed for northern France.  This was just on the corner of where we stayed.  That milk cow in the background was enormous!  I wish I could've gotten a closer picture of her.

We stayed in a cute little gite.  This is like an old stone farm outbuilding that has been fixed up inside to serve as a guesthouse.  The kitchen was way cute.

 And the shower was awesome.  Seriously, the nicest shower of anywhere we have stayed in the past 10 years.

Some of the furniture was pretty basic, but it was comfortable and homey.

And the Easter Bunny does apparently come to France. (I may have suggested to the kiddos that he might not.)

Plenty of candy, Play-doh, and some new activity books to enjoy.

Oh, the joy of Mad Libs!

After a little time spent enjoying a chocolatey breakfast, we decided to begin exploring Bretagne and Normandie.
