Easter Baskets

This year the Easter Bunny stopped by our house a day early, so when the kids woke up Saturday morning they found a surprise waiting for them! There was a trail of candy leading from each of the bedrooms to a big basket in the living room. That basket was for the whole family and was full of arts and crafts supplies. (The Easter Bunny must know how much we love to make a mess...er...I mean...do craft projects!) There was also one easter egg for each of the kids which had a clue telling where they could go to find their own basket. The boys had to follow a series of clues that took them throughout the house, garage, and backyard until they finally found their baskets. Here are some of the places they found eggs...

...in the freezer...

 ...and in silverware drawer.

Finally, Andrew found his basket under the grill...

...and Sam's was in Daddy's car!

Abby's search was a little easier, she only had one clue that led her right to her basket.



 Each of the kids got a new umbrella with their basket...


It was a fun morning and got the kids all warmed up for the egg hunt later that day!
