It was a chilly Saturday morning, but no one minded. (Our Easter bunny doesn't work on the Sabbath so we do our hunt the day before). Lincoln (16 months) even got in on the action for the first time this year. Gabe (8yr) and David (7yr) finally decided that it probably wasn't an over-sized rabbit that deposited all the candy in our yard, but before we did the hunt I gave them the speech- "If you want candy play along. You have many more years and younger siblings to not spoil this for." They were very compliant. One ambitious squirrel found a plastic egg and gnawed right through the plastic to find the treasure inside. If he wanted it that bad he deserved the treat. It is amazing how Zach and I can spend a good portion of our evening stuffing and depositing 100 plastic eggs in the yard and within 15 minutes they are all collected and inspected. Children buzz around on warp speed though when looking for Easter eggs. Watching them hunt is one of the fun things about being a mom. I love it.
