Easter Hunt & Dye 2010

The McCoards joined us for Easter egg dyeing and hunting on Saturday. Stacy went light on the eggs this year, only buying 6 dozen.(!) We decided not to hide the freshly-colored eggs this year and went with plastic eggs outside. Oddly enough, the postage-stamp-sized yard we have didn't leave the Easter Bunny with many choices for hiding places.

House of Wax

We went to Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum in Washington, DC this morning with Vicki's Girl Scout troop. The kids had a great time posing with the figures. They even got to get their hands cast in wax. I did mine in the only pose I could, Web-shooting Spider-man style, in red wax, naturally. The figures were actually so realistic that it was a bit creepy. If you looked right at their eyes in their line of sight, it seemed like they were about to come alive and start talking. I don't have pics of the wax hands yet, but here's a nice big slideshow of the rest.
