I thought about May baskets last week while I was remembering doing just what Avery did...ringing and running. We always tried to hide so we could see the expression of the person who found the basket.

I adore that you keep this tradition!! I had thought about doing it this year, but a) we have no flowers to speak of yet and b) no neighbors around so I opted for the ever famous Maypole stick. Well, it entertained Bear anyway ;)

Happy Easter to you oh and happy birthday to Avery! Looks like you all had some recent lovely days and that itty bitty yellow Easter dress? Too too sweet!

OH my gosh! I was telling my Husband how we used to do this as kids and he thought I was crazy since he had never heard of it. I am glad people you do this, I will have to share your blog with him to prove to him I am not nuts. ;)

I love this. What a great tradition. My boys would surely like the ringing and running part. And I would like the giving a bouquet part.
