Our Neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt

On Sunday afternoon we had a neighborhood Easter egg hunt organized by the Moms group I belong to. It was a lot of fun. We each filled 12 eggs for each of our children that were participating. Then a group of moms hid the eggs at a local park. The hunt was split into three age groups--0 to 2 years, 3 to 5 years, and school age children. The eggs for the two younger groups were just in the grass in two separate areas of a field. The eggs for the school age children were hidden in a woodsy area. Each child was allowed to pick up 12 eggs. N didn't really care much about picking up eggs, but J had a good time once he got over the crowds. After the egg hunt, we all hung out and had a potluck dinner. It was cold--in the 60s, but really windy--but still a lot of fun. Here are some pics. I don't have any great ones of N as I was hunting eggs with J most of the time.

So what am I supposed to do with this thing?

Hope you all have a lovely Easter if you celebrate it and a lovely Spring weekend if you don't!

How fun for your boys! We're hoping the weather warms up a bit by Sunday and that it doesn't rain!

Looks like lots of fun! I can remember Easter Egg hunts when I was little, one in particular, we were hunting for eggs in the snow!
