Let The Hunt Begin!

Every year, Grandma and Grandpa host a big Easter egg hunt for the grand kids. And by big, I mean 500 plastic Easter eggs and 3 dozen banana's (it's a family tradition, they go well with the hard boiled eggs for breakfast) for 17 grand kids; and one honorary grand kid to find. That's one ambitious Easter Bunny! There are rules to this annual event: each child is allowed 33 eggs (we never do seem to make the numbers add up); the older you are, the higher you have to look (no easy scooping for the bigger kids); and finally, the little ones get help from a parent.

It took Collin and Nathan a few minutes to catch on,

but once they did, they had a ball.
There were eggs EVERYWHERE
The "bigger" little kids were so excited to help Collin and Nathan.

Then it was off to the garage (it's been semi-finished to be a dining room for 30 something people for all major holidays) for a fabulous Easter dinner.

What a great day! Thanks Grandma and Grandpa!
