We hid Easter eggs on the balcony at Grama's house.
Benjamin had fun, but his egg hunt quickly turned into an egg toss!

I found one!
Ada was delighted!

Thanks Grama and Papak for a fun Easter!

Easter Eggs

We are really enjoying celebrating Easter with Grama & Papak!
Today we put on some of Papak's old running shirts
(to protect our clothes) and colored Easter eggs!
Here are a few pictures:
Benjamin promptly cracked his egg and began to peel it.
Then he proceeded to eat it all up!

Grama had also made special little Easter baskets for us!
We got Turkish sweets, stickers, paper dolls, and kids card games.
Yum! It was all wonderful!
Thank you Grama & Papak!
Happy Easter everyone!
Christ is Risen!
