After the traditional hay ride with Grandpa, the kids returned to find that the Easter bunny had come by again and left almost 200 eggs.

While the kids were on a boat ride first thing in the morning with Grandpa Joe for their customary trip to the donut shop, the Easter bunny stopped by and left a hidden scavenger hunt in order for them to find their Easter baskets.
Once everyone got in from the boat, they read the first clue.
Aunt Julie was also making some cute "bunny biscuits."
The silly bunny left the next clue across the street in the new garden!
After a couple more clues, it lead them to the top patio... I love seeing them standing on the other side of the glass door and windows trying to get the door opened.
Our little bunnies.
Such fun for all!

The absolute hit toy of the moment is Carter's Christmas gift from Ya-Ya, what he has declared as his "funky bike!" All 6 of the kids couldn't get enough.
Then we had a best of three "tug-o-war" BOYS vs. GIRLS!
We hopped across the street to find a bunny rabbit hanging from the tree.
While the kids rushed for the candy, the adults had planned some REVENGE... and were armed with their own set of cascarones!
Holidays are so much fun as a parent to just sit back and watch the children just have fun!
After a quick check in on Mema across the street, we decided to bring back a Easter tradition from 2010....
The famous EGG TOSS! It was incredible, yet again, how the simple game can bring out the competive juices in ages from 3 to 73!
One of the last events of the weekend was a 100 yard dash that Blake was challenged to:
The looser got an egg on their head... the raw kind.
I just love our Easter lake weekends. You never know what to expect.
