First there was the Embassy Easter Egg hunt. In anticipation of the party and after reading this book, Stella got clever.
Its the story of a little girl who gets a plain hat from her parents and then a bird makes a nest in it so she takes an old hat and makes it fancy so she can be the queen of Easter. The book works well with little girls and drag queens.
Point is Stella ended up making this, on her own, no prodding, helping, or informing her parents what she was up to (which made it that much cuter).

Tiger was not about to let his sister be regal alone and then begged me to help him with a hat. So we made more Easter hats. This time a little less queen and more bunny.
The Embassy Egg Hunt was beautiful and chilly in typical Belgian fashion. The kids had a great time.
But why only celebrate once? I decided we needed more so we had an Easter Brunch and small egg hunt in our backyard. Since we have nothing but grass it was definitely a less-exciting egg hunt.
Then our cute neighbors had a brunch. And what Easter brunch is complete without an egg hunt. This time we went all the to the park (if you look closely in the picture above you can see the park behind our house. Our neighbors are the boring lot to the right. We both have the most boring yards on the block and we are both American).
The kids got a lot of eggs.
Then we decided to go to Spain. More on that in a separate post.

We were unable to find a church service to go to on Easter Sunday itself so we spent the day quietly thinking about Easter and it's importance. And of course we had to have a fourth Easter brunch. This time we brought Flat Stanley.
