We had the egg hunt at Kelly’s house. Knox was into the hunt big time.
Niece Sarah is long past her days of Easter egg hunting but was willing to search for her prize egg [cash was involved]. Neil hid the prize eggs well – but not too well. She found hers in the branches of this tree.
Niece Julia is also well past the egg hunting stage, but the search was on for her prize egg which she finally found in the mailbox.
Shelby picked up a few eggs to put in her basket again this year [perhaps reluctantly]. She found her prize egg inside a dead tree stump.
Knox was racing around all over the yard, looking for eggs. He found a handful. Or two.
Knox found his prize egg pretty easily [plain sight] and didn’t even know he was looking for it.
Elijah’s prize egg was under a gutter downspout hiding behind some leaves. He had his dad’s video camera strapped to his hat, recording the egg hunt [from his viewpoint].
After the hunt, we sat in the shade on Kelly’s big front porch. Sarah peeled one of the colorful hard boiled Easter eggs to enjoy [with lots of salt] and [sister] Jane was digging those marshmallow Peeps.
Elijah, Julia and Shelby enjoyed the eggs, too, which is one of the best parts of our Easter tradition.
Group shot! Sarah, Jane, Knox, Kelly, Julia, Elijah, Shelby, Holly, Jerry and Neil, and even the photographer made it into the shot [that’s me reflected in the picture window ~ woo hoo!]
The spoils of Easter ~ Knox’s stash of found eggs. I love this family tradition. It’s one of my rare favorite holidays [zero stress]. I had a great time and hope everyone else did, too. ~ Happy Easter, yall!
