Easter 2014

Our Easter weekend started with the town's annual East Egg Hunt. I am always shocked at home many people show up at this event. There are probably 200 kids with somewhere between 1000-2000 eggs. We meet at the baseball field at Hunt Park in front of our house and all the kids line up on one of the lines. When they say "go" all the kids and parents just mow over all these Easter Eggs. It is over in under 5 minutes, no exaggeration. Bentley found a piece of chocolate on the ground, London got 1 egg, and I think Macy got 3 or 4 eggs. I was kind of irriated at the other parents because they were all picking up the eggs for their kids and putting them in their baskets. I saw lots of kids with 20-30 eggs a piece and then theirs mine with 6 all put together. I wasn't very happy about that and neither were they. We decided we'd go home and just have our own. I'm not sure if we'll go back next year at this point.

 At church the next day we met some members visiting America from Wales, England and Kathleen and I decided to invite them over for dinner. Marie was coming back from Utah and we weren't planning on having dinner over there, so Kathleen and David were making roast and potatoes and I was making a ham and funeral potatoes. We figured with both meals we would have plenty to feed everyone. After church we all met at Marie's house (it's bigger and has more room in the backyard then either of ours) for dinner and an Easter Egg Hunt. Our friends from Wales were planning on just staying for a quick dinner since they needed to get down the mountain to Scottsdale, but ended up staying for 4 hours. They had been in an SUV for a week and their kids were going a little stir crazy. We had lots of eggs for each of the kids and they enjoyed this Easter Egg Hunt much better then the town one.

 Bentley was more into playing with the teeter totter then the eggs.

The men all chatting. 
 The whole group!
 I had hard boiled some eggs to do at Marie's house, but by the time we remembered we had already packed up everything else to go so we just did it at our house.

 Bentley loved the eggs, but he just wanted to lick off the dye! He wasn't very happy when I wouldn't let him.
