Eggstravaganza at the Missouri Botanical Garden

Days like this past Saturday are hard to come by lately in St. Louis.  It was sunny and warm. No coats, no umbrellas, all you needed was an Easter basket.

We spent the morning at Eggstravaganza at the Missouri Botanical Garden.  If you're a member of the Garden and you have little ones, you can't miss this event.  Not only do you get to attend a great Easter egg hunt, but the Children's Garden is open (and free for egg hunters)!  This is our second year attending and our girls have the best time. Here are some pictures from our day:

Pics with real bunnies!

Each child got to find 10 eggs.

There were plenty of eggs to chose from...

... or you could find leaves instead.

Most eggs had candy inside but some had a ticket that could be redeemed for a prize.

And now we're ready to play in the Children's Garden for the first time this year.
