The hunt for the orange colored eggs

This year carter did an Easter egg hunt with my cousins kids. We wanted to keep it "fair" so everyone was assigned a certain color egg. I knew this was going to be a bit of a challenge for Carter, but I thought, hey it's never too early to start teaching colors. Well, he figured out that the orange eggs were his with some help from Kent, but he was determined to get the pink eggs too. (Didn't care about the blue, green or yellow eggs, just the pink eggs, hmmm). It wasn't long before one of the eggs split open and candy spilled out. From that point on all Carter cared about was getting the candy out of the eggs. Eventually we gave up on coaxing him to find those dang orange eggs, so Kent finished Carter's Easter egg hunt for him.
Cousins: Tucker, Payton and Chandler


He discovered the candy inside the eggs

Still trying to get the wrapper off the chocolate egg


A visit from the Easter Bunny. Carter was unsure about the giant bunny.

All those kids are adorable. I love the picture of Jessie in the rabit costume! Looks like a fun time. We divided the little and big kids too. We sent the big kids out into the orchard and kept the little kids on the lawn, but we forgot to mix up the eggs, so all the little kids got the money eggs (which they didn't care about)and the big kids got most of the candy. When we got home we realized Benjamin had just a little candy and $12 in change! So much for our bright idea!
