(and the last)!
finally! i am about to be overrun with plastic eggs and let’s not even talk about how much candy she has!
the last easter egg hunt was held at leigh’s – her backyard is a perfect backdrop for running kids and hidden eggs.
it was a relaxed gathering of friends, children, chocolate, bunny cake, food, mimosa’s and more mimosa’s 🙂
once the men hid all the eggs, the kids were released into the back yard and at that point, all pictures became blurry!
jasper is the youngest in the group by several years so to make sure she got her fair share of eggs, ian (leigh and dion’s eldest) partnered up with her.
“mama, i don’t need a partner! i can find those eggs by myself!” is what she started out saying but she quickly realized how helpful having a tall guy was.
(the guys hid a bunch of eggs in branches and on lanterns hence the helpfulness of height!)
on the move, on the move!
you can tell the kids are slowing down and the eggs are becoming harder to find because of two things: 1) the picture is less blurry and 2) they are grouped together 🙂
ian comes in handy yet again!
david told the kids that there was an egg that had a 100 dollar bill in it and whoever found it first could keep it.
now ask me if there was such an egg… no, no there wasn’t.
but the kids went crazy! jasper ran off hollering, “i want that money!” like she was 15 years old and already spending it on makeup and jeans!
after the kids ran around a bit more, they got pretty worked up (there might have been frothing at the mouth) and david finally took pity on them and broke the news.
we were all amused… they were not… jasper was just confused.
david and jasper lilith have a conversation.
after the crazy egg hunt, it was dinner time, cake time and then the kids headed off to the playroom while the adults gathered outside to hang out and relax (with occasional referee duty)… even the mosquitoes couldn’t make us go inside 🙂
of course, jasper got to bed way to0 late for a school night but none-the-less, it was a good way to spend a sunday evening.
now dave, about that 100 dollar egg…
