We had lots of fun with Easter Egg Hunts this year. The first was hosted by Sierra and her family. We had a yummy potluck lunch and then scattered eggs all over the yard. The older kids were only allowed to hunt on the left two-thirds of the yard, but they ended up with overflowing baskets. I tried to direct Bee to they younger kids side and she happily picked up eggs. This is the first year that she has really understood the concept of collecting eggs and not just eating them as she went. I did not have to push her, I just had to help her find them. She often would walk right by them without seeing them.

|The grass was long and the eggs were sometimes hard to find. Dandelions threw us off too.|
|These two girls helped each other out and stayed close to each other during the hunt. I found this photograph on Jenny's blog and copied it from there. She has a nice camera and a good eye. She takes beautiful pictures.|
|Each parent was supposed to bring 15 eggs per child they had. We all brought more than our allotment and we ended up with LOTS of eggs.|
|Fun was had by all.|
