Easter 2020! A Quarantine Experiment

We had a very different Easter this year as did the rest of the world, I’m sure! We typically never spend it at our own home with only our immediate family, we usually are visiting Neil’s family in Bastrop, TX, or mine in Houston, TX. While we so missed our fun family time, it really was nice to get a couple of our own family traditions rolling.

Most of you either know or can at least imagine how awful travelling with a toddler could be.  Fortunately, we have a curious little girl with a taste for car snacks (who doesn’t…amiright?!), books, and other entertainment that’s easy to translate into car activities.  As she gets older, we’ll add to these activities with more age-appropriate things to do! (Busy bags…we’re coming for you!)
