Our Egg-citing Easter

Okay, that was more than a little corny....but it pretty much describes this Easter. The girls went to 4 egg hunts! FOUR. It started Friday afternoon with a homeschool egg hunt, then we took them to the Charleston Egg Drop, which was a little insane, and they had two hunts with family on Sunday!

Isabel with homeschool pal, Abigail, at the Easter party and hunt on Friday. What a couple of hams!

I'm so cute!

We took the kids to the Charleston Egg Drop on Saturday morning. I really just wanted to see it for myself. It was pretty neat. A helicopter flew in over a field and dropped 20,000 eggs stuffed with candy and prizes.

The boys helped their sister collect eggs. Sweet guys!

Dying Easter eggs on Saturday night! Claire's first time!

Hey, this is fun! So proud!

The boys got in on the action too. I guess you are never too old to dye eggs?

Sunday morning! No, I do not dress my twins the same anymore.....they do it themselves. A little weird, I know.

Off to visit with cousins in Columbia for dinner and egg hunting fun!

These are from the first hunt of the afternoon. Claire is starting to get the hang of it!

Cousin Jacob is a great hunter!

Emma Hope is too busy to pose for a picture....there are eggs to find!

I told the boys this would be their last year to hunt, next year they have to hide. They said they would hide all the good eggs where the little children won't find them so they can come through later to get them! Great. Then we found out that Paul's grown cousins had a full body contact adult egg hunt on Saturday night. Hey, that sounds like something for the boys!

The newest cousin, JJ, just sort of......ummmm, slept through the festivities. He'll be in the mix next year!

Hangin' out in the coolest back yard ever!

Then it was onto our second egg hunt with another cousin

Yes! It's Hannah! Sweet Hannah!

Hannah loves being around her big cousin, Isabel.

Claire and Uncle Preston really got into this egg hunt!

Siblings. Who needs chairs when you have laps!
