The Hunt is On!

Easter was so much fun this year! My Dad, Mom, and Katie came to visit us. We had an Easter Egg Hunt for our ward on Saturday morning which I was in charge of. I had to hide over 400 eggs for the kids to find. Let me remind you that our ward is not large. We probably had a total of 25 kids there. So the kids left with lots of eggs which meant lots of candy. Later that day Mark's family had an Easter Egg Hunt. There are only 3 kids to find eggs so they each got a lot of eggs which had candy and money. Gavin and Madison each got $7.00. They were so excited about the money. Between the egg hunt and the tooth fairy Gavin feels like he's rich. Madison wanted me to take her to the store right away so she could spend it. We even had an adult easter egg hunt which is something I practice for throughout the year. Ever since I was little I was always the one who had a slow start and got the least amount of eggs. This year I was determined to be the winner. But it ended up the same as always. I got a lot of eggs but they were the ones full of candy not the green stuff. Thank goodness for my good lookin' fast runnin' husband who got the most eggs and the most money. I am so glad he doesn't mind sharing with his wife!
Thank goodness Gavin got his easter egg hunting skills from his father!


Madison is very determined just like her mother!

Gavin and Madison love their aunt Katie!


Now you know what I'm talking about. Look at all those eggs!


Katie new how serious I was about this hunting business but yet she still tries to distract me so she can steal eggs out of my basket. It's not my fault that she spent the majority of her time jumping up the tree to get that one egg!

adult easter egg hunts are the BEST! my mom used to do those when we were all first married and it was such a huge competition to see who could get the best loot. i'm pretty sure there are still eggs stuffed with cash hiding in her back yard...
