The Egg Hunt...over the past few years the big kiddos have not wanted to be caught 'dead' doing the egg hunt..so this year, Gam and I decided to add a little 'green' to the eggs...and everyone was more than willing to participate. Pop and Karl hid the 30 eggs very HARD. It took them quite a while to find them all, and in the end we were missing one egg. Karlie, Gam and Pop walked the yard over and over until Karlie found the very last one. I must say, adding some cash inside the eggs was fun. We will have to keep up with the that tradition.
Hunting for those eggs, was difficult business...I think we need to have the hiders of the eggs use a GPS to hide them next time. Opening the door to the yard to hunt...there was not an egg in sight. This was hard core egg hunting...these kids had to actually HUNT for them, not just scoop them up. ;)
This was the best egg hunt we've had in a long time. It was fun, and I didn't get any of the cash filled eggs.
Pop and Karl try to point the kids in the right direction of where they hid the eggs...but toward the end of the hunt they had to start looking for the missing eggs too.
The kids count their cash.
Easter2013 was fun. It was great watching the kids check out the Easter baskets, and then heading to church together. It was awesome coming home for a great Easter lunch, then hiding and finding $$ eggs, but the real treasure of Easter is JESUS!
Thank you Jesus!
