|Meagan, Derrick and Kelli headed to the Egg Hunt Forest|
No baskets. No plastic bags. Nothing! There were only 44 eggs...so they used whatever they had to gather them. Their blouses...
...their 'man hands'...
|Derrick and Will|
These were not as easy to find as the ones for the grands!
|"Look! I found one!"|
Will would have never posed like that for me...but Brian can always convince him some way or another.
It was time for counting.
|Brooke and I helped Bri hold on to hers|

Was it just the sheer fun of hunting eggs that motivated my children to such activity.
|Will with his prize!|
Maybe...or maybe it was the cold hard cash inside! Kelli and Matt walked away with the big bucks. She proclaimed the money to be for Nursery preparations. Poor Derrick found an "extra" egg that had to have been hidden by the previous land owners -- four years ago -- filled with candy! Yuck! That was a surprise to all of us.
And I think I told them we only had forty eggs out there...so there should be four more waiting on me. I really need to get down there this weekend and look for them!
After the egg hunts, we spent the rest of the afternoon just hanging out and enjoying one another's company. Here are a few of my favorites from that afternoon.
|Derrick, Bri, Kelli, Matt, Meagan, Will and Maddux...just chillin'!|
|Brian was our official photographer for the day...but I did find this photo of him from later in the day.|
|The Gun Show...Matt and Will comparing muscles.|
Okay, that is it for the Easter pictures from me this year. Thanks for joining us as we try and savor the memories of another holiday spent TOGETHER!
