Emma had an egg hunt at school . .

Mark went to help hide the eggs .

Emma returned with this tidbit of info, "Mama, Daddy and Mrs. Mary (the other mom-hider) aren't very good egg hiders. "
Me: "Why do you say that?"

Emma: "They just put them out in the dirt, I mean, we could see them just laying there."

When I thought about this: 12 eggs x 52 kids = 624, on a tiny, wee bit of playground, I understood why. But they had a great time picking the not-well-hidden-eggs up anyway.

Happy Easter Egg Hunting!

lol! I have my tiny house to hide eggs for three kids. Then they go to my Mil who had acres of land to hide eggs! Which hunt do you think they like best?:)

How funny! The egg hunt was the SAME way at out school!

I guess I'm a terrible egg hider too, lol!

Happy Easter! Yes, I can see why it would have been difficult to put real effort into hiding all those eggs.

tell Mark, next time, leave all the eggs in the trunk of the car, then make the kids look in the yard.
They'll be hidden so well, nobody'll find any!

My kids had the opposite problem lol The grass in the backyard at my in-laws was so tall they couldn't find the eggs

She is a doll - that second to the last pic is just precious!!

I couldn't believe how many adults put eggs way up in the trees. I mean, what's a toddler to do?? Heck, I'm only 5'1!!

Happy belated Easter!!

Sounds like the Easter egg hunt my kids went on -- very little detective work required!

The photos are adorable.

cute pictures!
The Egg Hunt we took my son to was the same....just scattered all over the grass...for him it was good cause he's not even two but for the older kids, not as much fun, I wouldn't think.

yay egg hunts! I love being bad at hiding eggs. otherwise it takes FOR-EVER! Now tell me this, were all the eggs counted and acccounted for? I considered counting them Sunday but didn't which means the dog may deposit some brightly colored flecks of plastic in her poo this week. ergh.

Isn't it funny how it takes us FOREVER to hide all those eggs, but the kids only take like 2 minutes to find them all? :)

Love the pics! Looks like great weather for an Easter egg hunt. I used to have to keep notes on where I hid all the eggs in the backyard, because if they didn't find them all, weeks/months later a yucky surprise would eventually be found. LOL

The 'not very good egg hiders' thing is hilarious!

It looks like they had a great time though.
