Happy Easter

It is tradition in my family to go miles and miles away to go have a Eater Egg Hunt in the middle of who knows where. It has been going on for at least 30 years and I think I have only missed 2 or 3. My grandpa and grandma Hanks along with Aunt Gayla and Uncle Ron work very hard to prepare for this event and we thank them for it. This year it was nice in the fact that the fire was already for hotdogs to be cooked and things were ready to go! We all bring our "famous dishes" which I always bring a berry salad. So we always have way more food then needed. My mom even had some of her famous potato salad left. We went to Succor Creek which is just outside of Idaho in Oregon. Very Beautiful! The kids had a blast climbing rocks and checking things out. After we eat the fun begins and we start t0 get eggs ready. Every egg has a number on it and every number is attached to a prize. Some of the prices are good and some are not so great. I love when the boys get necklaces and things like that because it is the luck of the egg. The GOLDEN Egg for the older group was found by my brother Luke, which is a good thing because it is the only income he has seen in the last 4 months:) Here are a few pictures from the day.

The fun didn't stop there. We then left in time to make it to the Patterson Egg Hunt. Which was held in their neighbors HUGE yard. I heard that Grandma Patterson hid all 330 eggs. That is impressive. Thanks for the fun and the ham dinner after. I don't think I will have to eat for days!
