Easter Egg Hunt

Matt and I always say we manage to meet the nicest people wherever we go. Whitehorse has been no different and I have another Yukon Blogger to thank. I started following a new blog on Urban Yukon called Gen and the Art of Berrypicking. I soon discovered we had a lot in common and we started emailing.

Gen and her husband were kind enough to invite us over for supper while we had time to kill in Whitehorse. We were in for such a treat! Not only did we have a delicious meal, we had great conversations and the best part- an Easter egg hunt!! Gen had bought the plastic Easter eggs and filled each with a little toy or candy. She had also bought baskets for both her daughter and Hunter.

Our two toddlers picked up on this game very quickly!

Being the gentleman and sharing his bounty!


Showing off his basket full of eggs!


Both kids were just as excited to discover there were treats inside! Gen's daughter took to a candy necklace like a magnet and Hunter was enthralled with a tiny loader.

Since our supper with Gen, we have gotten together a few more times. It has been good for Hunter to have a playmate. He sure does like the women!! Today Gen, Fawn and I were all at the Canada Games Centre to let the kids run around. Hunter chased those older girls all morning!!

I am thankful for people like this who are making our stay in Whitehorse so pleasant!

Aw shucks!

I've found that what goes around, comes around. Tonight, a friend offered to babysit our tot while we go out for fondue. And she already has three kids of her own!

I'll leave you our coordinates in case Skeletor wishes to make an appearance already!
