Chocolate overload

This week our playgroup gathered at a local park for an Easter egg hunt.

It was a little chilly but we had a great time!

We started out the morning with snacks, including my friend Rachel's delicious hot cross buns.

After a quick bite the kids ran around a little bit. Marion refused to hold still, however, I managed to get this picture of her. :)

Next, we gathered the kids up for a walk. They waited (patiently?) to hunt for the eggs.

Then they were off!

Alot of the trees had stashes of eggs at the base of them.

Somehow, the kids seemed to find these stashes in groups.

Marion was quite pleased with what she found.
She was even happier to break into the chocolate.

After a brief chocolate break, the kids tried egg races.

They got it, at first.

But they quickly realized there was a faster way to run and keep the egg on the spoon.

My little stinker dug into the food while we were doing the egg races.

She's going to be a tough one. You can just see it on her face.

"Yea, I ate the food you left here. This chocolate chip muffin is good. What are you going to do about it?"

Happy Easter everyone!

Looks like a really fun time!! And I think your assessment of Betti's look is pretty accurate. Good for her! Love to all.

buns. Delisc..!

I'll say she's a tough one. She even slipped "the bird" into that last parting shot.
