Mamna's Annual Easter Egg Hunt

Sam would not pick up the eggs that were open - he skipped them all until we showed him how to snap them back together

Finders of the Golden Egg

Every year my mom has all of the grandchildren to her house for a big egg hunt. This year things have been a little different because my mom's 60th birthday falls over Easter weekend. I planned a party for her on Saturday with friends and family so she had thought that she might just skip the hunt this year. The kids were so upset when they found out! It is great to see that the 10 and 12 year olds still regard this as one of their favorite family traditions. She had treats for every one and they grilled out hotdogs. The greatest prize is to find one of the golden eggs. Robbie was so ready for the eggs this year - he ran out screaming, smiling, his golden hair lifting with each bounce. It just made me smile. The kids always enjoy the time with their cousins - they are best friends. Sam was so thrilled - this was his first egg hunt and he kept up with all the others. It is a joy to see him finally getting to experience all of these little family traditions.

All I'm seeing is that the weather was gorgeous and you guys didn't have to bundle-up in winter coats. That's just not right!!! (We had flurries.) Looks like a great time!

So jealous...
