chocolate eggs

Easter at our place. It began with a cool, crisp morning outside, and warm jackets were put on.
It consisted of some eggs delieverd by Mr. Bunny.
Eggs with a surprise inside, and excited faces finding eggs.
A lot of chocolate eating.
It was subdued compared to other easter's past with cousins in Australia but overall there was plenty chocolate feasting and fun times.*

These chocolates come with 20 eggs. We had two packets and both had more than 20 eggs, one with 21 huevitos and the other with 22 huevitos. Someone does not know how to count. Or is it a machine that hands out the eggs?

The rest of the day was spent talking about so many things, eating chocolate, having a small lunch. We had an afternoon siesta, Joaquin drew a lovely easter card for his teacher, Jason made a quick white loaf of bread, and then in the afternoon we went for a walk with Bondi the dog. The kids rode their bikes and we played in the local playground. J cooked a lovely roast beef and so many roast vegetables and sloppy peas for dinner. **
It was a lovely day!

*We celebrate easter because it is traditional for J to do so, he remembers how fun it was growing up and having chocolate eggs. It is beginning to be a big celebration here in Argentina, the shops are filled to the brim with chocolate and there is a national holiday from Thursday 28 March to Tuesday 2nd April. I would eventually like to celebrate Pesach and introduce this celebration in my children's life. It is all up to me, I know.
**I really would have loved to gone camping but did not get around to go. Hopefully the weather stays nice and we can go and camp again soon.
