Sunshine for Our “Hunt” ???

I’m ready to dye Easter eggsk0036029k5517328

but, it’s a little too early…

So, I decided to keep my spirit of Easter going by filling the plastic eggs for the Grandkids to hunt on Easter Day…

I was hoping for pretty weather k5876594 … but, the forecast says “rain”k0334307

I never put plans on hold… because weather can change in a week…

We save a big bag of plastic eggs to reuse every year…

I ended up with some and I think my daughter-in-law has some…

I love their bright colors… Some are small and some a big…

We have a pretty big backyard… with big trees and grassy areas k1013394to hide the eggs…

We all get into the fun… Melanie and I fill the eggs… My kids, my husband and others that are here at Easter hide them… You just have to participate in some way!… You just can’t resist!

I love watching the kids running around the yardk5964598 … looking here and there… down by the fence… near the tree trunks… in the grass… near the deck…

They fill their baskets k12006141or bags not stopping to look inside the colorful eggs until all of them  are found… Then, they dump them all out and count how many they have found…

This year since they are older… 8 and 11… I put inside coins

I robbed our Piggy Bank … to add some appeal to the hunt…

Makes it a little more interesting!…

We will eat dinner of ham, turkey, baked potato casserole, deviled eggs, green beans, slaw, hot rolls  and a special dessert from my daughter-in-law which is her specialty…
