Easter Weekend

Our neighborhood has an annual Easter egg hunt so we thought we should check it out!  

It was awesome.  The kids each got a hat when we arrived, then they were sent off to search with maybe 20 other kids for the 2500 eggs that were scattered over 4+ acres!  
The boys disappeared and I didn't see them until the hunt was basically over, with their bags (we forgot baskets but happily had Aldi bags in the back of the van!) full! 

Isla was easier to keep track of and therefore most of my pictures are of her, even if she didn't want me to take them. :) 

She had no idea why she was picking up eggs but she enjoyed every minute of it!  

She was doing a great job too until.. 

She discovered this guy and got sidetracked.  Oh well.  

Once the hunt was over our boys reappeared.  We were getting ready to leave when we found out that on top of the goodies in the eggs there was a prize table that all the kids could pick from.  Our kids made out like bandits!  

Sunday morning we had our own little hunt.  
It wasn't quite as spectacular as the day before but we still had fun.  

We had Jay and the kids over (Jamie had to work) for lunch/dinner.  Unfortunately we discovered that one of our children had taken our roast and put it back in the freezer.  I tendency to forget to put meat away after grocery shopping and said child is usually a great help to me, as he always checks the fridge for meat I didn't get around to putting in the freezer, this time it backfired.  So I shot out to the grocery store and paid top dollar for hamburger meat and buns. Oh well, it was yummy.  

After our lupper, the guys got to work on demoing the downstairs. 

Here are the before pictures.
