The Easter bunny visited the Kibbutz this weekend and boy did he bring a serious haul! Between wanting Hayes to have plenty of eggs to hunt for and not being able to decide which chocolate treats I wanted to be able to partake in sharing in, we have enough Easter candy to last us for the next 10 years. Needless to say, my coworkers have me to thank (or resent) this week for their afternoon sugar rush ;-)
Hayes and I got into the Easter spirit on Friday morning by whipping up a batch of Easter thumbprint cookies, which were simple but delicious!
Since we were going down to Irvine for our annual Easter brunch at Strawberry Hills Golf Club, we knew there wouldn't be a whole lot of down time on Sunday morning to have a leisurely hunt, so the Easter bunny decided to come to the Kibbutz while Hayes and I were out grocery shopping on Saturday afternoon. As you can see, when Hayes spotted a few errant eggs scattered on the front steps of the house, he was prrrrrretty stoked to say the least.
The boys adorned their bunny ears and Hayes quickly retrieved the haul that was strategically placed around the backyard, finding the big baskets waiting for them at the end. He amazingly seemed more interested in making sure that everyone else had sampled some chocolate vs. eating a whole lot himself (don't worry, he's had plenty since - what's a hallmark holiday without eating chocolate in bed first thing in the morning?!).

Sunday morning, we headed down to meet the rest of the Cohen clan for a delicious Easter brunch and spent the rest of the day relaxing at Nini and Pa's, capping off the weekend festivities with a homemade traditional Easter meal, courtesy of Nini and Aunt V.

It was a great weekend and it was so nice to be with the Cohens for the holiday. As you can see, it tuckered our youngest bunny out, but I'm sure he'll be quite anxious to partake next year ;-)
Hope you all had a great Easter!
