What a wonderful Easter! We spent our weekend with our fantastic family, colored dozens of eggs, uncovered many treasures hidden by the Easter Bunny, and did much giggling!
Grandma and Poppy got Charlie some treats and Chuck Trucks … but he really liked the grass!
Charlie was too little to participate in dying last year, so he made up for it this year! He thought the colors were awesome!
“Gentle” the boy is not! He tossed this egg (which is mid-throw!) into the green
Egg dyin’ fools
Everyone got an egg: Charlie, Carter, Poppy, Mom, Daddy and Grandma
Sweet Carter and her “Carter Egg”
The 2011 egg crop!
… and Charlie “helped”
The girls, with Owen’s supervision, colored eggs at Grandpa’s. They only got pink and purple, however, because I misread the directions.
Let the Egg Hunt begin! Five children scattered across the lawn in a manic rush for eggies! Owen scored a couple orange eggs.
Charlie, with Daddy’s help, spotted this blue egg in the grass
Carter found an egg with Owen’s name on it, yelling, “I got one for you, Owen!”
Spotted: Bright Blue Egg
Gotcha ya, egg!
Marissa, cautiously tracking down a blue egg
OH NO! Carter tripped and her basket of eggs spilled everywhere!
(I love her hands on her head, total panic! I can imagine her fear, ready to faint over the catastrophe!)
As the hunt winds down, it’s a mad dash to get the last few remains treasures
Happy Easter! Love, the Chalupa Kids
