Children on a Hunt in MY YARD April 13, 2010

My husband started a tradition of having an annual Easter Egg Hunt at our house. Since we don’t have little kids, it’s our way to still see the joy of children’s faces hunting for eggs, candy, and prizes along the way! We invite family, neighbors, friends, friends of friends, and anyone else who wants to join.

Hubby prepares the front yard, making sure everything is perfect. He then scatters the candy, bubbles, gum, plastic eggs filled with more candy and pennies, and this year we added Hershey’s pre-packed eggs. We have little stuffed animals or toys for the babies (cause they need something too).

He lines them up- Get Ready, Get Set, GO!!!!!

Off they go, running, grabbing, and scooping up their goodies. The little ones are best to watch because they’re very particular of what goes into their basket. One little girl did NOT want the plastic eggs but was going for the candy only. When mom helped her, she simply took the eggs out of her basket and threw them back on the ground. Another little boy woo hoo’d for every piece of candy he picked up and another needed to show mom each piece she found.

We were asked Why we do this. When you have this cute little person saying thank you, your welcome, thank you– 100 times because she was so excited….That’s Why!

Hope you enjoy the pictures of our visitors for the day!

    What a Great time! Just watching the little ones pick up their eggs and put each one in the baskets was awesome. Watching my Grandson (Vincent) was priceless. At one year old, he new just what he wanted. If one fell out I would put it back in but he didn’t like the way I put it o he would take it out again and put it in his way. LOL Thank-you Richie and Rachael for a wonderful day and some great memories.
