Easter Egg Hunt in the Park

A bunch of friends and I thew an Easter egg hunt this morning at the park for our kids. We all brought some eggs filled with candy and threw them in the grass while the kids played on the playground. Simple as that. :)

I told the boys yesterday, and they were SO excited. They even went to bed without a peep last night, knowing the Easter egg hunt was in the morning. Chase has told everyone we have seen (or even talked to on the phone!) for the last day and a half—"Ee-ter. Hunt! Eggs. Park!"

 T and his best buddy Colton, with proud we-got-the-most-candy smiles!

All of the kids together. It's amazing we got so many of them to look up from their candy!

(As a funny aside, I asked a mom I didn't know to take a picture of all of us moms and kids together. She thought I was asking to take a picture of her kids, so she posed her kids and told them to smile in another language. I felt too awkward to tell her, "No, I don't actually need a picture of your kids. I was hoping you'd take one of me and mine." So I just snapped a picture of her kids and ran away! Haha, she probably thought I was so weird!)

Reason #52 that holidays are even better with little kids.

Happy Easter!


  1. What a fun idea! Holidays are MUCH more fun with kids.

  2. That is too funny about the picture. You've got quite the group of kids for the hunt! Now I need to think about if we should do one with our little cousins. Maybe the week after with clearance candy... :)

  3. What a great idea...lucky kids to have such fun moms!
