Because it was Rain Dragon's birthday!
We had another birthday red hunt, this time making sure all the eggs were red so that the connection to the Chinese tradition was a little more direct (in Chinese tradition, red eggs are used to celebrate a child's birthday--the red egg hunt is our own personal take one it!). Even so, it was not very traditional--but the Rain Dragon's friends didn't seem to mind.
The hardest part was holding back the crowd:
On your mark, get set, GO!
The yard was in much better shape this year and the weather was cooperative, so I think it was a successful hunt!
at least it was for Rain Dragon:
Also, this year instead of trying to do the cake last minute, we assembled it with pre-made fondant decorations and turned everyone's mouth's blue:
|Rain Dragon loves planets and ducks!|
which might have been what Rain Dragon wished for:
Happy 3rd Birthday, Rain Dragon!
