Easter Egg Hunts!

This year we participated in 2 egg hunts. The first was at Jenny's house on Saturday afternoon, and the 2nd was at Teresa's house on Sunday afternoon. The kids loved both of them and came home with PLENTY of candy. I'm torn - I don't really want them eating all of that candy, but at the same time I want them to hurry and eat all that candy and get it gone. It's so tough. :) The kids don't care, they just love it all. I'm happy they had a fun time and some good memories. I've included the pictures from both the hunts here.

These pictures are at our first hunt. The race is on! We started with little kids first - off they go!

Easter egg hunts in Utah are funny. It's freezing cold outside and all we have at this time of year is dead or dead-looking foliage. The eggs stick out like a sore thumb. I guess it's all in what you are used to. Still fun.

This is Athena's first year to hunt with the "older kids" and she did oh so well.

I'm holding Nathan's bag here, NATHAN'S BAG. I didn't collect any for Alexandra this year because we just plain don't need any more candy and she doesn't know the difference. She enjoyed having me carry her around and watch the other kids. That's all she needed.

Mid-hunt picture for Samantha. She hasn't collected all her eggs yet.

Now we move on to the hunt at Teresa's on Sunday. READY . . . SET . . . GO!

Run Forrest Run! OOPS! I mean - SAMANTHA! LOL. She is having so much fun!

Ahhh, and we make it to the end. The bounty. I think it's cute to watch the kid's excitement as they open each egg to view the surprise contents. Athena has reached the age of counting. She came home and counted how much of each item she got. Jeremy and I both did that when we were little too. So funny.

Looks like everyone had a very fun time. I wish we could have been there. I feel a little sad when I see the pictures of all the cousins together making fun memories and we aren't there for any of it. I'm glad they had fun though.
