Church Easter Egg Hunt

 This morning, I woke to beautiful cantaloupe colored skies.  No sleeping in for me, thanks to a five year old with a bloody nose.  He did a great job of taking care of it himself, but was not the least bit worried about doing that quietly ;)

 I made a fun cake to take to the picnic we were having after the Easter egg hunt.

This was probably the simplest cake I've ever made, but it sure was cute.

Someone else had a similar idea and brought one that looked like a sunflower.

 Before we headed out, the two year old was really getting into playing with Legos.... literally. He was in the box ;)

Our pastor hosts a big Easter egg hunt every year out at his house.  It was a lot of fun.

 The two year old really figured it out and had a good time.

He ended up with the most eggs of all my boys.  He found 19 of them.  They had a rule that the blue ones were only to be picked up by the youngest kids.

 The five year old wasn't interested at all, even though the first thing he asked me this morning was if we were going to the Easter egg hunt today.  He was upset because he thought it was going to be at the park like the one for the preschool was.  He refused to cooperate.  But he did enjoy being outside all day.  He ended up with only 5 eggs, so he was given a special prize at the end - a bunny pen - not candy, which was the best thing they could have given him, since he hates candy.

 Pastor has 10 horses in his corral and the boys enjoyed seeing them.

The five year old found a stick and was perfectly happy.

After the kids did their hunt, they were given eggs to hide for the adults.  The ten year old helped the two year old hide one too.

 The five year old was content to sit on a log with Daddy.

The ten year old brought his football along, and found plenty of people to play with.  I think this picture is hysterical.  The ball hit him in the head.  I didn't even notice that when I took the picture.

The two year old was pretty tired, but he wouldn't quit playing.

The bunny pen the five year old won is in his hand in this picture.  He was very excited about it, and that was the only thing he really wanted all day.  As soon as we got home, (well, after playing outside some more) he wanted to draw with it.

 These last two pictures are from yesterday.  The five year old found these sunglasses in the toy bin. I don't even know for sure where they came from, but they're a little worse for the wear.
