An Easter Egg hunt

The children get really excited by Easter. Last night they left a bowl of carrots out for the Easter bunny and, luckily, this morning they were gone. In their place was a pile of beautifully wrapped Easter eggs.

More baking at Nanny’s house

With Easter fast approaching there was still more baking to be done, this time delicious chocolate cakes.

Baking an Easter cake with Nanny

We are spending Easter with Nanny. We put the Easter decorations up and made a cake with Nanny.
