Nursing fine and doing well. Looks like my babies except the hair is darker.

Easter Egg Hunt

Standard

For your viewing pleasure: Pictures of the fantabulous egg hunt at the wee house. Dave hid 70+ eggs on the crochet lawn. The flat lawn west of the house.

But first, let’s look at the IL egg hunt. See the girls hiding really big eggs under their shirts?

This is how exciting the hunt was! And how high eggs were laid by the easter bunny. In the lilac bush?

Also note how warm the parents are bundled up compared to the IL people.

Here  the moms are chatting. Note the same very excited parental unit behind them.

The Easter bunny hauled all the kids toys out onto the croquet lawn so he’d have things to hide the eggs on, under, around.

Rena wandered around and found enough eggs and then went to play in the play house.

B-girl was happy with finding her quota of eggs and plastic duckies. So she was happy playing with Rena.

It is really hard taking pictures of kids hunting eggs. They move too fast. Or they turn around and stand in the way so the camera only sees their hinder quarters rather than the hand and egg.

The easter bunny decided that the yellow eggs were for the littlest ones. The pink ones were for the middlish kids and the green and blue ones were for the over 6 yrs old and boy did they have to hunt for them!

And the local family in the Big House. Soon the girls will have to reorder their positions so Mom isn’t hidden. Maybe in a  year or two Mom will have to stand in front of A-girl?

 

 

 

All for now! The kids are gone; the car is packed and I’ll see the rest of you this week.
