Sunday we went to my parents’ house. It truly is an extravaganza.
Here’s the Popeye and I, he would not keep still with the hat on his head; the best part of his outfit. It was too cold to put anyone, but him, in their planned Easter outfits.
I loved Popeye’s hat. He looked just like my Grandpa.
There was some hanging out.
There were lots of gift… bags this year not baskets. The kids didn’t mind one bit.
The real fun is the Easter Egg Hunt. No candy, just money for the kids. There’s always more than 100 eggs. Papa saves his change all year long to fill those eggs. I think he called himself the Easter Boss (instead of the Easter Bunny.)
But the exciting part is the egg for the adults. Usually we’re looking for the “golden egg” and we’re all competing with each other for that egg. This year, we all had to work together, since my parents are expert game makers. There were rules, typed out as Rules of Engagement for the Easter Hunt 2011. And there were riddles, lots of riddles. We had to stay together and solve each one before we could move on to the next one. And we only had 30 minutes. We started off pretty quickly.
But then the riddles got a little more difficult.
So we just laughed and laughed. And we begged for more clues.
While the kids just played with each other.
Until finally we were lead to the orange egg this year. But it was worth it.
Hope you had a great Easter. We sure did.
