Easter 2012

This Easter was a wonderful time for our family. As you can see in the following pictures our kids had an awesome time searching and finding candy filled eggs. We missed not having Uncle Brad, Aunt Pam, Linden and Leandra again this year for Easter as they would have had a blast watching the kids trying to find all those eggs. More importantly than that for the first time we had all the kids and their spouses with us for a great time of fun, food, and games and believe me when I say we enjoyed every minute of it.

This was one of the pictures toward the end of the weekend so lets step back in time to when the weekend started.

It all started on Saturday at Uncle Tony’s house with a huge Easter egg hunt and plenty of the best chicken we have ever had called Tony’s chicken. The picture above is right before the searching began for around 300 eggs or more. I can’t remember exactly how many but each kids had to find about 30 of them.
