THE OUTDOOR HUNT

This morning one of Lily's friends came over around 9 a.m. She told Matt and Lily that the Easter Bunny had come to her house and hid Easter eggs outside filled with chocolate and asked if they would like to help find the eggs. Of course, they were both thrilled and started getting ready immediately. Seconds later the friend's sister came over and said it was time to go to her aunt's house and the egg hunt would happen later in the afternoon. This news started World War III at our house. Tears and screaming tantrums erupted. But Matt had a great idea...he could fill the plastic eggs we were using as decorations and Dad could hide them outside for Matt and Lily to find. So, we had our own little Saturday morning impromtu Easter egg hunt outside of our house today.


















I love the contrast of the bright blue egg against the faded, peeling birch tree in this pic...





Another one I like...although I wish I had changed the depth of field so that the background was a bit more blurred, but I was in a hurry to take the pic before they spotted this egg...





Good thinking, Matt! At least it will hold them over until their friend gets back home and the hunt can continue. Then, the Easter Bunny will be visiting our house again tonight after everyone goes to sleep so that he can hide the real eggs we painted yesterday! So much fun!
