Easter Eggs and Horseshoes

After a great Easter Musical presented by our church choir, the children all gathered for the big Easter egg hunt...which had to be moved indoors due to the much needed rain. Even though I don't have little ones that hunt eggs anymore I wondered down the hall to watch anyway and to snap a few photos.





Heather's friend Hunter joined us to attend church and then for dinner at my mother-in-law's. The rain stopped and it was a gorgeous sunny afternoon! Before we could eat we were informed we had eggs to find in the yard. I haven't hunted eggs in years, but what fun! Marty, Heather, Hunter and I raced about the yard trying to find more eggs than the rest.

I had to stop and count all my eggs to make sure I had more than Marty. Yep...I did!

When we'd found all we could, I had 12 eggs and Marty had 10...and Heather and Hunter each had close to that. Each egg contained coins, but one special egg contained something special which entitled the winner to a special prize. I tried to convince them all that I had the egg with the special prize because one of my eggs did not contain a coin, but a spider! But, no, Marty got an egg with a Susan B. Anthony dollar so he won an adorable basket! I tried to remind him that what's mine is mine and what's his is mine...but he wouldnt' hear of it this time.

You'd think with 2 adults and 2 almost-adults we'd have none of the "no fair, he's giving you clues" stuff, but not so! We all acted just like kids and loved every minute of it!
When all the eggs were counted it was determined that 2 were still missing...so Marty went in search of them until he found them so he'd have more eggs than me. Quite the competitive lot we all are!!!
After the egg hunt and delicious grub the adults pitched horseshoes while the teenagers played pool in Granny's game room.

I pitched a few good ones....and a few that Freddie had to dodge!

It was a blessed day first in worship, then with family. Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter!
