Some Easter Festivities

We had some of our Easter festivities a little early this year. There were a few reasons for this, one being that Grandma had to work Easter weekend and we all decided that doing our egg hunt the week before would be better for everyone.

We dyed some eggs to hide in the hunt. We dyed lots of eggs. Somehow we ended up with a bazillion of those little egg coloring tablets. We had about 15 different containers of colors and then ended up just dumping a bunch of the tablets together to see what color we could make. The kids called it "baby barf green". It took about 2 seconds for an egg dunked in that color to be done. Those little tablets are powerful! Especially when you combine 13 of them in one bowl!
These pictures are not the greatest, but at least I have proof that a fun family activity happened!

The next day we went to Grandmas' house for the Egg Hunt!!!!
We also filled some plastic eggs with candy and brought half of our hard-boiled eggs. So did everyone else. There were tons of eggs to hide and find!
Here are some of the children with their precious treasures.
Adrienne found the GOLDEN EGG!!
Isaac was enjoying his egg tremendously.
Ryanne found a giant blue egg stuffed with candy.
Savannah was happy with her eggs too.
Tyler liked finding eggs, but he was more excited about the skink that he caught, which wound up being put in a plastic egg.

Jonah was nowhere to be found during this part of the egg hunt because he was too busy searching for eggs. He didn't bother with the hard-boiled ones. He only picked up the ones that were filled with candy.
Here are all the cousin participants.
Joined by some of the adult egg hiders and happy watchers.

We had a really fun time.

I think an egg hunt a week early is a great idea! I don't know if I dare show my boys these photos! They'll be way too sad that they missed out!
