Easter Egg Hunt

All families have their traditions. With the addition of grandchildren, our family traditions take center stage. Now that Ayden is getting older, he was all about Easter and hunting for eggs filled with treasures. Little brother Jameson either tagged along for fun or pretended to drive Bumpa's golf cart. Don't you know boys love all things mechanical. While I placed eggs around the yard for the boys to find, Pete put the finishing touches on his bunny basket clues for the adult treasure seekers. You see, our tradition is to place clues in eggs, one leading to the next, until the grand finale of locating the hidden bunny baskets. Pete was in rare form this year with almost 5 typed pages of clues. And let me tell you, they were difficult! Jamie and Jason quickly became a team which sped the process considerably. In a little over an hour, they had located their booty. Rising to the challenge, Pete's clues will be even more difficult next year. But they have a secret weapon. Ayden will be older and wiser. He's onto you, Bumpa! Click here for a slideshow of the Rector Treasure Hunt. Be the egg...be the egg...

Oh, this sounds so incredibly perfect! I am so looking forward to have Easter egg hunts with my little grandbaby, Jack next year. Well, ok, next year may be a bit too soon, but the time will be here before I know it.
Btw, I have no problem if you link my blog to yours. What a fun way to keep up to date with eachother.

I love our family traditions! I know that when the boys are all grown up they will love having these memories. It was such a fun Easter this year.

About the hunt.....I caved. Doris made me dumb them down a bit and made me feel guilty on Sunday morning that the 'hunt' would be too painful. My instinct was to really raise the bar. I should have stayed true to my principles. Next year Honker, bring a flashlight, warm clothes, a bus pass, and a compass. You are going for a ride on the mother of all egg hunts. The bunny has spoken.
