Hippity, hoppity, Easter is on its way! From hunts to pictures with the Easter Bunny to activities even your older kids will enjoy, we’ve got lots of ideas on how to spring into the spirit!

First, dust off your baskets and get ready for the timeless tradition of the beloved Easter Egg Hunt! There are lots of opportunities around town to reach your jelly bean quota and even try your hand at finding the elusive golden egg.

Second, if you’re like me, getting a picture of your kids with the Easter Bunny is an annual tradition too precious to miss. I love putting them in frames and setting them up around the house during the Easter season to see how the kids have grown from year to year. I know that all too soon, one (or both) of my kids will be “too cool” for the big guy, so I’m all about relishing this photo opp while I still can.
