Then, the kids were released....
and the hunt began!!!
There were goodies around every corner!
And hidden on and around many objects in our backyard!!!
Most, within arm's reach.....
Some you had to stand on your tippie toes to get!
But, no matter how you got them, you were able to quickly fill up your basket with them!!!
And the best part of all, the smiles on the faces of our kids, our family, and their friends!
The joy of seeing how happy they were to find little surprises all over the backyard!
And then to watch them as they checked out each other's baskets.... and if someone was missing something... they shared! Addyson offered Walked her bubbles because she saw that his basket didn't have any. Such a sweet girl! No, this isn't Walker... here she was checking to see if Owen had a Rice Krispy Treat and he did... and had he not, I'm sure she would have shared one of hers with him!
It was pure chaos but such fun chaos!!!
The shrieks, shrills, and screams of "Look what I found!!!" filled the backyard and it never got old!
And there were grandparents close by to help open items....
or help dig through the baskets looking for goodies!
What a fun hunt!!!
Here are our Happy Hunters!!!
And then the eating began!!!!
Once the music stopped we were all scrambling for a chair!!!
It got down to the final 4, Uncle Ryan, Opa, David, and Aunt Holly!!! And it got "nasty"!! : )
They didn't mind fighting "to the death" over a chair!!! This was a competitive bunch!!!
All kinds of crazy measures were taken to get the last chair!!
And then it came down to the judge's decision many times.....
And this time, David won out..... poor Ryan!!!! Hard to let outsiders win at "our" family game!!! ; )
But, there was still a battle over that FINAL chair!
Happy Bunny Day!
