Easter Egg Hunt 2012

Each year, we have a tradition where we have an Easter Egg Hunt on the greenbelt behind our house! This year, however, was the Big Granddaddy-O of all Easter Egg Hunts! We had 30+ high-schoolers participate! Here they are in our garage, waiting for the green light to GO! We hid 325 eggs! Each egg had a number inside - and that number had a prize associated with it! We had lots of candy, gum, Bubbles (yes, the high-schoolers said, "SWEET!" when they won bubbles), Silly Putty, and CASH! They also had egg relays (remember that?) and played pass-the-pretzel-with-a-straw, and even played football! There were some cascarones involved, too! We served LOTS of lemonade and the kids had an absolute BLAST!
Here are some of the kids on the greenbelt hunting for eggs. Yes, even the Easter Bunny made an appearance down there in his big white suit!
Here's one of the participators claiming his prizes! What a fun afternoon we all had! HAPPY EASTER TO ALL OF YOU! There is much to celebrate, for HE IS RISEN!
