Easter Egg Hunt at Grandma and Grandpa's

Today was the annual Easter egg hunt at my parents house. We have been sooo worried that we'd get rained out! But the clouds smiled down on us and held their rain in, and it was a go!

It was a bit chilly, but remember how when you were a kid it could be 10 degrees or 110, and it didn't matter 'cause you were outside? Why is it, do you think, that as we age, we become more intolerant of the temperatures, and the range in degrees of what we find comfortable gets smaller and smaller?

This year Tanielle brought her family (exept Lexlie, she's sick :( ). My brother also invited some of his friends that he grew up with and their families. These are his little group of friends that were partners in crime, if you will, from grade school on up. It was such a good time catching up with them and seeing all their cute little families. Reminiscing about the good ole days. If you knew my brother, you would know that this included lots and lots of laughter!

And my kids had such a great time with their kids. I'm so mad that in my rush to get there on time, I left my camera home!! I'm so sorry I don't have any fun egg huntin' pictures to share with you all!

All in all it was a wonderful afternoon, and it's so nice to have a day filled with laughter and friends to set a wonderful tone for Easter. I love Easter, and I feel so blessed to have so much family around to celebrate with. Tomorrow we will be heading to Hubby's family's for Easter dinner after church, and the kids always enjoy spending an afternoon with their cousins!

I hope you all are enjoying your Saturday, and have a beautiful Easter Sunday.

Hey, thanks for the comment on my blog...as soon as I hit publish post I wondered about a carpet cleaner or exterminator perhaps reading it. :) ha We actually know the guy...I just lean towards the sarcastic at times.

But the bug guy was totally and completely creepy.

Ask Tanielle, I am a nice person. :) I am her brother's sister-in-law. (he's married to my sister.)

btw...i love your name!

Forgetting the camera is sometimes a blessing, it frees you up to enjoy the festivities. I'm sure someone had your back!

Happy Easter! And no camera probably meant you could be more of a participant than a photographer.
