Easter Egg Hunters


 Our Easter morning was soggy. 
We had five hours of pouring rain in the middle of the night. 
The front lawn was a sponge, and the backyard a quagmire. 

Do we do the egg hunt and where? 

The weather this last month has been awful,
 we've only been home for two decent days in the last two weeks to do yard work.

At 9AM, I threw a few flowers on the table on the front porch 
and put my greenhouse geranium and 
rosemary pot out.

Not much for spring decor.

A watering can purse filled with white tulips, some of the petunias have already blown away.

Hubby stuck our Easter bunny into the winter burned lawn.

Grandma didn't get the NEW Easter dress sewn---bad blogger, bad Grandma.
but, Off to the hunt. By noon the wind had dried off the front lawn.

Just as well, skinny jeans are perfect for the 'wet' and messy yard.

Taking pictures of kids dashing about the yard results in lots of blurs, and unposed chaos.

Two other family friends joined the Grand.

The twins are at that magic age of almost leaving childhood at 12.

The eggs, etc.were labeled with names----making the girls all work together. 
The Grand has learnedher letters and her name.

Most elusive were the hanging umbrellas. The kids had to be prompted by the adults.

In a few minutes it's all over---quite a haul.

Examining the booty.

We save the eggs to use from year to year, a GREEN thing to do. 
I throw them in a net bag and into the dishwasher.

When does Easter come again, Gramma?

"When is it going to rain again, Gramma?"

I guess the umbrellas were a hit.

Hope you all had a Happy Easter!
