I have always loved the egg hunt. I remember hunting Easter eggs at my Grandma Fulton's house every year. The whole neighborhood plus some would usually participate. Grandma had plenty of flowers for great hiding places too!
When my kids were little, my mother carried on the tradition. We would have lots of people over for lunch and the egg hunt. After the official hunt, prizes would be awarded and the adults would return inside for a time of fellowship while the kids hid and re-hid the eggs a dozen times! But then they grew up and didn't really enjoy it so much anymore. Poor Will got the shortest time for egg hunting fun since everyone else was so much older than him. It wasn't as much fun for him to hunt eggs alone.
However, with the new little ones in the family...the egg hunt is exciting once more!
Here we go...time to look for eggs!
Brooke found the first one. (And yes, that blue dye was still on her hands when she left! It sure was pretty though.)
Davin ended up with the most eggs of the day, having found the Queen's Nest which held half a dozen.
Maddux hunted eggs for a little while, but quickly decided it was more fun to ride on Pappaw's shoulders and let Uncle Will do the egg hunting for him.
Looks like he made out pretty well from his perch!
Eggs, eggs, everywhere you looked there were more eggs!
It didn't take this little princess long at all to open up a package of Starbursts!
It will be a couple more years before we can hide the eggs in the deep grass and secret places...but it was still a lot of fun!
