This weekend we attended an Easter Egg Hunt and potluck at a friend's house. It was a fantastic time of family, friends and food. I prepared my Grandma Ethel's 24 Hour Salad. Tasting the marshmallow/pineapple goodness took me right back to holidays spent at Granny and Grandpa's house in Olympia.
Ikaika is such a sweet and caring little guy. The rules of the egg hunt were that every kid was to get at least a dozen eggs, so if you ended up with more you had to share. Ikaika took the liberty to count both his and Koa's baskets then redistribute the wealth. He walked around and found barren baskets to fill.
He also, without any prompting (if you can believe it) took almost all of his candy and gave it away, asking each group he came to if they wanted the treats. Most of the eggs were filled with stickers, small toys, dollars (?!), etc. But I was still impressed when he parted so easily with the sweets, explaining to us that "candy makes you weak."
Besides, I suspect that he really wanted to eat the cheesecake inside ;)
Happy Easter! May the Lord continue to bless you and your family with the endless bounty of happiness.
