The Big Hunt

Every Easter we put together a big egg hunt in our back yard - it's a big hit with all of the kids. The triplets have been practicing since St. Patrick's Day - when we had a scavenger hunt using old Easter eggs - so they knew just what to do. It was fun to see each of them respond so differently.

Oliver was pure excitement and joy - each egg was such a treasure!

Willa was very serious the whole time - I could not get a smile out of her. She was very intent on finding her eggs, and wound up with far more than the others.

Kate discovered early on that the eggs were filled with candy. She would find an egg, drop everything, and eat the candy, before moving on to the next egg. She did not finish with very many eggs in her basket, but she was full of chocolate and jelly beans.

Evan, as usual, was a great sport, and was sure to save eggs for the little ones.

Although much candy was consumed, it was a good and happy day for all.

Oh, my babies AREN'T babies anymore! :( It makes me sad to see them so grown up. I wish I was there to see them grow. They all look older, but especially Oliver...he is soo big! And his hair has gotten really long! I am so glad they had a Happy Easter! They are always on my mind, and in my heart. :) I love you Kate, Oliver, and Willa!!
