Huntin' Some Eggs

Saturday morning Stella had some of her friends over to hunt Easter eggs... You will have to enlarge this photo to appreciate 1 empty lot, 9 egg hunters, several dozen plastic candy-filled eggs, and lots of camera-wielding relatives snapping away...
Ooh, she found one!
Stella was amazed that the eggs had things hidden inside them. She wanted to open every one she found right there on the spot...
Only a couple of minutes into her hunt, the basket was already full...
We finally let her try a treat from inside the eggs...
She thought it was gross...
So she did what we do with anything gross around here: she fed it to Daddy...
Kelly's serious child...
Once Stella found out some of the eggs contained Starburst, the hunting was over and the eating began...
The beautiful Raney family paused for a group shot. At least, Dad and Mom paused; Cohen never stopped chewing his loot...
The Millets are accomplished family picture takers. We always look forward to their well-posed Christmas cards...
Still eating Starburst...
Such sweet friends!
Lora made sure that Baby Bird felt included...
From Stella's expression, this must have been the most fun wagon ride ever. The expression on Ethan's face was not the same, since he was pulling about 100 pounds of girl through the grass...
Cohen wondering why we don't have more little boys his age...
Here are our best attempts at a group shot of the egg hunters. Stella obviously had to be bribed with Starburst...
By the time she was finished chewing and ready to smile, Cohen had had enough and was ready to escape...
We had a great time hunting eggs and pumping our children full of sugar. Can't wait to do it again next year with even more egg hunters!
