Easter Eggs

This past Sunday, our Sunday School class had our annual picnic and egg hunt.

I realized this year that in regards to egg hunts, times have changed.

Gone are the days of slowly picking up eggs that are "hidden" in plain view.

These days, it's a mad dash!

And if, like Emma Jane, you haven't fully made the transition from slow, methodical hunting to the frenzied free-for-all we experienced Sunday, you might wind up with only three eggs when all is said and done.

But if you look sad enough, and maybe cry a little, then someone (maybe someone who took more than the 10 eggs allotted for each child) will graciously share some eggs with you.

And then all will be well.

And the loot inventory can take place without incident.

Because isn't that what Easter is all about? Candy-filled eggs?

No, it isn't. But I have more to say about that in another post. Stay tuned!

Awe, poor EJ! Madison decided the hunt wasn't over. When everyone else went back to playing, she started riffling through baskets!!

Look at that handsome boy hanging out with Libby ;)

Great pics! Can't wait for you to email me some :)

Oh, the mad egg hunt dash! We know it too well, unfortunately. Even when they split up age groups, the egg hunting can be pretty competitive.

Your kids are so cute! Love the girls' Easter dresses.
