Easter (Photo) Sunday

Intended to go up before midnight last night...hope I'm forgiven! We stayed at my son's house a bit later than I'd planned on!

My younger son turned 27 yesterday; this is John as we were waiting to begin the "Great Egg Hunt".



My daughter-in-law Noel had chosen a ranch theme for our grandkids outfits this year.
Left to right are Caleb, Talia and Dillon in their front yard.



A great time was had by the grandchildren and the grown ups during the proceedings. There were some unusual hiding places this year, as Caleb figured out when his Uncle Bill (my older son, 28 in two weeks) got involved!



Just before we found the last of the eggs a pair of real Easter cottontails showed themselves! One slipped away to hide next to the house, the other stayed "hidden" in the grass where it's "Mama" had left it.



Before the last of the eggs and carrots were found, Dillon decided it was time to refuel a bit.



A beautiful day, and a wonderful time. Hope each of you had a great holiday as well!

What great pictures. What a beautiful family! It reminds me of when I was a child and the Easter egg hunts. And I had no idea you had two sons close to my age.

Hope you are well,
