Photo Ops

After church yesterday Amber, Eddie and Eddie's sister Erika joined us for dinner.

Then it was time for baskets for the girls and Cameron.

As the girl's looked through their treasures the older "kids" headed outside to hide eggs around the front yard.  Then it was "let the hunt begin"!!! 

It's bright out here!

They ran around giggling with Eddie and Cameron helping to guide the hunt. All the while Eddie had an egg in his pocket waiting for one of them to notice. Lauren finally did and got that one.

As we got down to the last one it became a game of clues, until Hannah guessed it and found it on the tire of Eddie's car.  Needless to say our very competitive Lauren wasn't so thrilled with being outdone with this last find or falling short on the number of eggs found.  So we had to emphasize that it was the thrill of the hunt RIGHT?? 

It was a fun day and the weather was absolutely great for our time outside.


  1. We did our Easter egg hunt on Saturday. One day too early but it worked out better.

    1. You have to "go with the flow". We usually give baskets first thing in the morning, but with the older kids arriving in the afternoon, we held off. It works and everyone's happy : )

  2. What a wonderful celebration!!! :)

    1. It was fun, and a great chance to burn some energy after a filling meal : )
