So what do you do when you have 3 kids under 4 to entertain on a cold spring Saturday morning and it is almost Easter? You take them to an Easter egg hunt/ petting zoo. Fortunately, I had a little help, my mom came with us because I don't know if I could have managed everyone on my own.
All 3 kids jumped into the stroller and we walked over to the church putting on the festivities.
The kids really liked the "Easter" bunny. They kept trying to feed it grass.

They also had some puppies which Lance loved and he was so good with them, he was very gentle. The puppies were so cute, I wanted to take one home with me.
One puppy fell asleep in Lance's lap. I would have taken it home with me, but then I thought about having to house train a puppy and reconsidered a puppy quickly.
After years of trying, I finally got Lance to go on a pony ride. I told him it was just like the carousel he liked at the zoo, just alive, although it doesn't make any sense, he relaxed a bit and enjoyed his three circles around the petting zoo.
Lily was a bit scared at first, as you can see, but made it without crying or freaking out. I tried to get E to ride the horse, but she was too afraid, which makes sense if you think about how large these ponies are in comparison to themselves.
The ducklings and chicks were also adorable and I wanted to take them home with me as well.
Me, ms. germ freak couldn't resist picking them up and holding them, which means they were pretty darn cute.
After enjoying the animals, playing with sidewalk chalk, blowing bubbles, face painting and standing around for awhile it was time for the Easter egg hunt.
Lily, after gathering two eggs was done, she sat down, opened them up and tried to eat what she had. It is funny how she is content with a little and didn't care that there were hundreds of more eggs she could have gotten, she was content with her two.
E, like Lance knew that the object of the hunt was to find as many as you could, and she filled her basket up fast.
Lance and E tag teamed the egg finding, and Lance was a great sport about letting E get some eggs too. I was so proud of him.
