Easter Egg Hunt

Since Grant was five, our Easter egg hunt has been a clue following adventure. When it began, I didn't plan for it to be a tradition. That year he had just really started to read. I thought it would be fun to hide clues in his eggs, plus the adventure went with the "Narnia" themed basket he was getting. But he loved it so much, the next year he started talking about how exciting hunting for clues would be again three days before Easter. So, the tradition began.

Usually I stay up late the night before trying to be Dr. Seuss making the clues rhyme. That, of course, means sometimes they are very cheesy, but each year Grant is thrilled. The clues also talk about the reason we celebrate Easter Sunday.

The "hard to find eggs" I found at Target were a new addition this year. They look like rocks, pine cones, and grass.

According to Grant, it was the best egg hunt ever.

Gordon hoping that some of the candy falls out of the egg.

In the end, the basket was in the trunk of the Honda.
