Easter Egg Hunt

By the way, I am going to be putting up a post tomorrow of some of Mia's clothes that she has outgrown. I am selling a few things she has not worn much or never wore but some of the items include all of her reversible pinafores that I got off Etsy as well as the ones my mother in law made (they are finally too small on Mia- boohoo). (I also have a few dresses and Naartjie 2 piece outfits that are just adorable. I'm not trying to make a ton of money off these things so they will be priced well but I just thought some of these things are really cute and lots of love went into making some of them so I thought I mine as well put them up and see if anyone is interested. So watch for these items sometime tomorrow and maybe tonight if I can get my act together. All will be a first come first serve basis.
Every year at my brother and sister in laws farm they do a huge community outreach and have a massive 4000 egg hunt. They do a little message about Jesus rising from the grave for the kids (and adults too)and then they do a big hunt with golden eggs that they get prizes for. It is totally cool and if you notice I do not have any pictures of Owen because he was so into the hunt I literally never saw him until the very end. The kids had such a fun time.

Checking out the baby cow on the way to the hunt.

The baby cow had just licked Mia. This was her immediate reaction-- too cute!

Waiting for the hunt to begin while they were giving the message.

And the hunt begins.

Mia loved picking the eggs up and opening each one to see what was inside.

Nothing in that one.

Putting them in her bag

Big smiles

Score!!!! Daddy helped Mia score a bunch of eggs hidden in a wheel barrow.

This was on the other end of the wheel barrow.

Ethan and Joey (My sister in law Amy's nephew)

The bag is full of eggs and we are out!! It was a great time and we so appreciate that they put this on for such a wonderful cause each year. Cant wait till next years hunt!!!
