A Hunting We Will Go...

We have had a great time recently with some fun Easter Egg hunts. We started things off right with a cousin egg hunt at my parent's house over conference weekend. The kids were so excited to get some treats! Grandma even hid a golden egg with $5.00 in it. Morgan and Abby new just what to do -- they headed out and started collecting eggs.


Wyatt had to figure things out a little bit. As soon as he realized there were treats in the eggs, he was off and running.

Jaxon was the lucky winner of the golden egg, all the kids were so jealous! The other kids each got a dollar egg though. Morgan was figuring out what every one's tithing was. She wished she got to pay 60 cents like Jaxon.

Abby looking in the wishing well, what a cutie!

Wyatt trying to reach the eggs on top of the wood pile. He had to call in some reinforcements!

Morgan, Abby, and Andrea were thrilled with the egg hunt!

Once the eggs were found, Wyatt and Skyelar moved on to the trampoline. They had a fun time just jumping and wrestling.

We all had a great time. The guys who were there went to the priesthood session of conference together while all the girls had a great visit.


Yesterday we went to Osgood and had a cousin egg hunt with all the Marshall cousins. Before the hunt, the kids had a great time chasing rabbits and exploring the old barns and buildings. Grandma took Wyatt and Caleb for a walk. They had a great time! All the cousins lining up for the start of the hunt...

And they are off and running...

Abby, Ally and June new this was serious business.
Wyatt didn't waste any time either. He didn't need help getting started this time.
Morgan decided she needed to check out what was in the egg before deciding if it was a keeper or not. A girl after my own heart.
We have had a great couple of weeks with lots of family and fun. I am glad we were able to avoid the overcrowded community egg hunts this year. I wouldn't want to get into a parent brawl over whose kid got to the egg first. I already know mine would have been there first-- JK. We had a great Easter. I will post about our Easter morning later this week. Happy Easter everyone!!!

Sweet tactics by morgan! Oh the joys of finding eggs! Why is it that the Easter Bunny is known for Eggs? Bunnies dont even lay eggs.

You guys are lucky ducks to get two Easter Egg Hunts. We were so happy that you guys were able to come out to our house. Just yesterday I found three more eggs that the kids had missed. I guess we did too good of a job hiding those eggs!!
