On Saturday our family was invited to a BBQ & Egg Hunt at a friend's house. I love Easter Egg Hunts so I couldn't wait to get out there & get the kids searching! We all had to bring a side dish to share so I made a strawberry banana trifle.
I've never made a trifle before so it was fun experimenting. It had strawberry angel food cake, strawberries, bananas, whipped cream, & chocolate pudding. It turned out pretty & tasted pretty good too.
We started out with a nice game of
with the kids. I was surprised how many of them had never played before. They loved it!!
And then the hunt began. There were over 500 eggs hidden all around the park & the field behind the park. Bladen didn't quite understand what he was supposed to do.
Luckily the girls are egg hunting pros!
Taya found 4 eggs & then fell in the field. She started bawling & declared herself DONE with the hunt. Silly girl.
Once the eggs were found it was time to look at the LOOT!
Cadence & Lorien were sweet enough to share their surplus off eggs with Bladen & Taya. Taya found her 4 & Bladen found 3.
(The older girls had about 25 each)
After the hunt we had a wonderful BBQ. Mmmm. There's nothing like hot dogs, frog eye salad, & homemade potato salad to brighten my day. It was FABULOUS!
After lunch we all just hung out & enjoyed each other's company. The kids enjoyed their time with one another & the adults enjoyed their adult time.
Poor Taya couldn't find anyone to play with so she entertained herself with her new friend:
"Mrs. Easter Basket."
She even rode on the teeter totter with Mrs. Easter Basket as well.
All the kids were on a major
Bladen was crying for chocolate NOT jelly beans! Craiger was fussing to eat. Taya was playing with her basket like it was a person. . .
Cadence held her basket at all times so nobody would steal her candy.
And poor Bladen was just worn out beyond words. He literally just swung in a swing until his little eyelids couldn't take it anymore.
You know it's time to go home when your little guy falls asleep in a swing!
