Hunting for eggs in the sandbox

On Saturday, there was an outdoor egg hunt in Grandma Carol’s and Granddad’s backyard for four kids. The younger pair were Brady and Robert, so they got a head start going counterclockwise around the pool. Samantha and Hannah went the other way shortly thereafter.

Robert finds an egg sitting up here

I participated in the egg-hiding, trying to hide eggs in cleaver places. Robert’s Mommy was far more logistic; she know that kids would not appreciate my being to cleaver.

My kingdom for an egg! If I could only find one!

Robert’s interest in this smaller egg hunt was no as great as when he was in the company of other children, but the adults were delighted!

The spoils of victory were not so interesting

After Robert took tiny nibbles out of four marshmallows, we confirmed that Robert did not really care for them! However, did enjoy the Easter basket that his Mommy assembled.

The basket contained Elmo-themed Easter Eggs with halves of his favor grain and fruit bar and cheese crackers. Also, pictured is an Elmo book which he proceeded to read while sitting with his back supported by Mommy–a perfect end to a Beanie Easter egg hunt.
