Growing up Easter was definitely one of my favorite holidays. It was a day full of fun activities with family and friends. My favorite part of it all was the baskets full of goodies. Ian on the other hand isn't the biggest fan of sweets and I'm pretty sure he gets that from his dad. If it's sticky, chewy, messy, or smells funny he won't go near it. Inside his easter eggs he only had Chocolate caramel bunnies because that's the only thing he sometimes likes. On Easter Sunday it was cold, dark, and raining all day so going outdoors wasn't an option for us. I have been wanting to dye eggs with Ian since before he was born and this year he was finally big enough to want to help and do things on his own. He loved it! He did get a bit too excited taking the eggs out and cracked one but I think they turned out pretty amazing considering it was or first time and bubs did do most of the work. I can't wait for next year hopefully this becomes a little tradition.
We used blueberries, red cabbage, and brown onion skins. We boiled each item in water with a tiny splash of vinegar. Strained and poured in separate containers. Then when a bit cooled let the hard boiled eggs sit in the mixture for a few hours.
