Plastic Eggs, Plastic Bags



Plastic grocery bags are good for many things. They are good for when you forget to bring baskets to the Easter egg hunt. They are also good for throwing up into when you are driving home in the car. Of all the places I could have lost my lunch, the car had to be the worst. It was a long drive home.

Throw up aside, it was a pretty great day. With 10 kids their spouses, and their kids, the annual C. family Easter egg hunt is a big event. Mom and Dad C. really know how to pull it off. We started with lunch and then we were divided into 5 groups. The coolest part is that even the grown-ups are in on the fun. We had a blast racing for candy, chips, drinks, eggs and plastic eggs with $ inside.
Maybe next year we should add a 6th group: Mom and Dad C. --they could race to find plastic eggs filled with little notes and pictures from the grandkids:) Except that we'll have to mail them because they just announced they will be putting in their papers to serve a mission later this year. Yeah! and Ohhh....
Thanks for all the fun...especially the plastic!

Why were you throwing up? Brandon's crazy driving or did you get sick?

I agree with the next hunt being the one for Grandpa and Grandma. They deserve a little of the fun of the chase and some rewards for all their efforts!

Just a stomach bug--no crazy driving and not pregnant either:)

I'm sorry you got sick! That's miserable. It was good to see you and your family. We will have to think of a way to surprise Mom and Dad C. with their own hunt next time they're around for it. That would be fun!

I don't know...those ol' folks can get pretty vicious.
I think plastic bags work better than baskets for the hunt anyway, since you can hold more and things don't fall out as easy. We purposefully left the baskets homes this year.

I am glad you had a plastic bag to throw up in.
Easter egg hunts are so fun! It makes me happy that our families have such great and fun traditions.

I think that you are allergic to Northern Utah. Or there must be a conspiracy against you.
