Some of my favorite Easter memories are the Egg Hunts that Grandma & Grandpa Fulton would hold in their front yard. Lots of eggs and lots of prizes...and a whole lot of fun with the whole neighborhood invited. My mother carried on the tradition with my children and friends of the family. They still talk about the year when she changed the rules to 'the first shall be last' and the one with the least eggs got the biggest chocolate bunny. (They are still not happy about it either!)
We may not involve the whole neighborhood, but we still have lots of fun!
Once the Grands find their 150 or so eggs, it is time for the Big Kids to hunt eggs. Each egg has a token in it worth $5, so this is some serious stuff. (Last year we actually put money in the eggs, but two were missing for six months before Will found them while bush hogging one day.)
Did you notice their 'Easter baskets'? Bri has a cleaning tote, Kelli is carrying my mail pouch from the back door and Josh has a leopard print bag from Mimosa Rose. You should see them grabbing whatever they can find to put their eggs in!
Somehow Kelli and Matt always walk away with the most money. I don't know if it is because they see better than the rest or if they are used to finding things hidden by the kids.
That was our Easter! I hope yours was filled with family and fun too!
