You can never get enough of this kind of fun, can you?
This is what we were doing at the farm on Easter Sunday afternoon following a beautiful morning with friends and neighbours at church. I was told well in advance of Easter Sunday that even though my 3 boys were well into their adult/teenage years (21, 19 & 17), they in no way had outgrown the annual Easter egg hunt and were anticipating lots of goodies in the form of candy and chocolate treats.
They did say however, that they would be willing to let their (much) younger cousins have most of the fun running around the farm, gathering up the eggs from all sorts of secret hiding places. They were even willing to hide the eggs, just as long as there was sure to be enough yumminess to go around.
Holidays always seem to bring out the kid in us, even when we’re no longer the kid. Special rituals and traditions like this never lose their appeal, no matter what our age when it’s shared with special people in our lives. That’s why we were so excited when my sister promised to visit from Kitchener with her family. Her children are much younger than mine and so we love it when they can visit. Despite the significant age differences (Liam 9, Elliott 7, Kate 5) we have copious amounts of fun playing and hanging out together. Coming to visit the farm is always an adventure for them and they love the freedom and fun of playing outside on the big front lawn.
You just never know where you’re going to find an egg.
Once Kate got going she was determined to fill her basket.
Trying to keep all those eggs from spilling out wasn’t easy.
And now for the reward.
Uncovering the treasures and treats inside those beautiful eggs.
