Easter....

Let's start with a picture of my little buddy Maddox...
My parents have 7 grandchildren....when you include husbands and boyfriends, then we have 11.
Almost since the 1st grandchild was born, we have had Easter egg hunts at my parents house. But they are all grown now.......the 2 youngest in high school. But they have mentioned over the years how much they miss the egg hunts. So we decided this year to not only have a hunt for the great grandchildren, but to also have one for the grown grandchildren! And what fun it was!
We all hid the eggs around our backyard. And including just throwing a bunch all around so there would be a free for all.

So here they all are.......eager to go! We told them they had to stay on the deck until everyone was out. And then it was a race to see who could find the most eggs. And each person also had an egg hidden with their name on it that contained money. So if you came across anyone's egg, you had to leave it but you could cover it up some more!

and then it was crazy.........and funny! I was laughing so hard watching these grown folks racing around, knocking into each other and hiding the others "name eggs".

here's my niece even running around in her skirt and heels!

My beautiful Jacquelyn looks like she has about had enough!

3 of my beautiful nieces......

and another beautiful niece and her boyfriend

more beautiful people.....my daughter Nicole and grandson Maddox.
we had a grand time on Sunday.......all 27 of us for dinner and it was just so much fun. All of the grown grandchildren have agreed that this is a new Easter tradition of us!

later.......

You have a beautiful family and a great one too because they're not too 'grown up' to run around scooping eggs! you've raised them right!
