MY WEEKEND OF APRIL 19

I don't know how it happened, but suddenly I was member of Google+ ! I hate Google+ and the way they sneak into your profile. I always pay attention to not fall into the trap, but somehow I did, but apparently I am not the only one because I found help on a Forum and deleted this unwanted thing !



My Easter decoration was rather poor this year, as we were alone, but Mr. G. brought me this beautiful orchid and my cleaning lady gave me this Faber egg looking like egg, she had brought from Poland,  together with her Easter wishes.



Apparently I am very good in Easter egg hiding, because we found this nest a week later !



My son's father in law sent us this cute picture of grandson Toby for Easter.



In the afternoon together with Ilona we made a little walk through the park of an old convent, where artists also expose, we had a chat with one of them and then had a home made cheese cake and coffee.



On Easter Sunday I decided to go to the Wolvendael park near Waterloo, located in one of the municipalities of Brussels. The park is very big and I had never been there. At 3 pm the Easter egg hunting started for all kids, and there were a lot ! Families and grandparents were helping to look for the eggs, there was a playground and the kids had really a lot of fun.



I took some pictures of the little once who were very proud when they had found some eggs ! I thought of my little grandson he would have had a lot of fun with all of them. After all the eggs had been found (or not) they played on the games or football (soccer) with their daddies . I enjoyed the sunshine for a while and watched them before I returned home.

3 years ago we had the same egg hunting in Waterloo, but for I don't know what reason they don't do it anymore. The eggs were offered by the city as it was for this park. With all the taxes we pay I wonder where the money goes if there is not even a little left for some Easter eggs !

That Easter egg hunt looks massive! I just had to work, so no egg hunt for me. Mind you, I still have some Easter eggs in the fridge...

That faberge style Easter egg looks too good to eat. I agree about Google + If someone comments on my blog from a Google + account I find it almost impossible to reply as I do not want to belong to Google circles.

It did not happen automatically, but I had to join Google+ to see something. I won't use it, but it doesn't worry me that I joined. It does annoy me that I was forced to join, but that goes for many websites.

How lovely of your cleaner to give you an Easter egg, and a very nice one.

In the past I used to have Easter Egg hunts in my garden for the cats and dogs. Of course, the cats just sat and looked while the dogs found and ate all the eggs! I love Rosie's pose next to the lovely gift you got from Mr G. xxx

You had a nice Pascal WE! I admire really the place you live! Always a convent or a castle to visit and enjoy a nice exhibition! But for the eggs hunting i would not go there! I need holiday without kids around after the carnival and eggs hunting at school!

A fun weekend and the weather looks beautiful. My older grandkids loved to hunt for Easter eggs when they were toddlers and all spring long they would want to re-hide the plastic ones whenever they came over to see us (we'd put pennies and dimes in some of them each time)..it kept them busy for a while. I swear we found some of those eggs when we sold the house (by which time, the kids were teenagers and young adults!).

I don't think Easter egg hunting has really caught on here. The heat would turn the eggs into a puddle of chocolate before they were found.

Hi Gattina, I've been away for a while, not writing on my blog. But today I decided to do a bit of blog travelling and read yours. What a lot of fun it looks - the Easter egg hunt. I always wonder how Easter is connected to eggs and bunnies. Maybe you could tell me the story? If it's ok with you. And I love your beautiful Faberge egg.
