Celebrating Abe’s 40th Birthday on the beach with an Easter Egg Hunt.
We just got back from celebrating Abe’s birthday (yes, for the third time). It’s a little Venice Beach Easter with our mostly Jewish family. We have an Easter Egg Hunt with our little cousin Vivi. I remembering dyeing eggs when I was young, but I don’t remember hiding them. I certainly don’t remember finding them. It’s amazing watching Vivi discover each of the eggs. She freaks out like it’s the only one, yet there are over a dozen. We are all so excited for her. It’s the best when you’re the only kid participating – you win everything!
I help stuff the Easter Eggs with chocolate, which is a lot harder than it sounds. I want to put at least three in each of them, but that just isn’t possible. But before we can dig into the candy, we have dinner. There are several vegetarian pies from Pitfire Pizza. Pumpkin, Mushroom, and Eggplant pizzas for the vegetarian birthday man (it’s weird calling him “boy” now that he is 40-years-old).
Aunt Heidi also orders salads, sides, and meatballs. I stick to mostly this part of the buffet.
Birthday Cupcakes and cookies too. I seriously cannot resist a cookie with frosted ears, can you? Hope you have a Happy Easter wherever you are.
