This year I learned that Jacob is a savvy little easter egg hunter. He figured out that he could get much more accomplished by leaving his basket in the same place and running around getting candy with both hands . He would run back to his basket to empty his hands when he couldn't carry any more. It reminded me a little bit of "Supermarket Sweep". I was so proud. He did waste a little time doing excited dances, diving unnecessarily and stopping to say "Yes!" when he found something particularly good, but we can weed out those bad habits by next year. The Nelson family does a crazy Easter Egg Hunt at Grandma and Grandpa's house where we don't really hide the candy so much as "throw" it across the lawn. All of the grandkids clean up! Eddie pretty much stopped by the first candy he spotted to shove it in his mouth (wrapper and all). He has done this so much now that he actually gets mad at me for removing the wrapper, I guess he associates the taste of tinfoil and wet paper with a treat. We had a great holiday and although we didn't get around to decorating eggs this year, we did have a lot of fun four wheeling with friends- which definitely beats out egg dyeing as an Easter tradition. Our boys loved camping in Dabinki, especially the being filthy and eating dirt part. Here's a few pictures from our Easter holiday.
