An “Egg”cellent Haul

Thunderer did not want to cooperate with the group picture after the egg hunt was over.

The four seemed to have a lot of fun though.

Later we’d manage to corner Thunder and she allowed us to perch her on the eggs themselves.

Height Matters

This one, our TJ, is tall enough now that egg hunting is a challenge for us.

We want the places to be somewhere only he can reach but we also want they to actually be hidden.

The challenge is hiding eggs for both the older and younger siblings.

Next year we’re going to try and color code them so that the older kids go for the “blue” for instance and the younger ones go for the “red”. I’m using quotes because I’m not exactly sure what color we’ll assign quite yet. It’s a year away after all!
