Hippety Hoppety Egg Hunt

This post may set the record for the shortest amount of time lapsed between the actual event and when it actually shows up on the blog!  Maybe that's because the girls are so wiped out that they've been napping all afternoon!  This morning, Layla and Jenna attended the First Annual Hippety Hoppety Egg Hunt at Lions Park.  It was a little chilly and we may have even felt a few sprinkles, but they still had so much fun and can't wait to do it again next year!

When we first got there, I'm not sure they quite understood why they had to carry around these huge baskets!

 Layla and Jenna were so excited to see Olive and thanked her for inviting them to the egg hunt.

Before the hunt began, we started the morning with a little Krispy Kreme donut.  Layla was a huge fan!

Jenna: "Oh please, can I have a bite of that donut?"

Our apologies to the nice man whom had his water bottle stolen right from under him...

...but rest assured, both my girls enjoyed it!  (Looks like Jenna got that bite of donut she wanted.)

We'd better get on with the hunt before Layla swipes all of Addi's Easter grass!

 And we're off!

Jenna spotted this orange egg first... 

...and never took her hands off it!  

That is, until Layla "helped" her break it open.

Way to double-fist it, Layla!  Poor Jenna...she lost half her egg, but she looks determined to go find it. 

I think she may have spotted it! 

There you go, Layla...put it in your basket!

Jenna: "Has anyone seen the other half of my egg?

Layla: "Hmmm...I wonder if there's anything good in sister's basket."

Still looking for that egg!

Jenna: "Oh where could it be?!?!?"

Layla:  "Look, Daddy!  I found half of an orange egg!  I think I'll keep it all to myself!"

After the hunt, we attempted a group picture of all the kiddos...not too shabby I think!

Then the kids got to sit around and admire their loot.  
Layla: "Whoa...this egg opens!"

Layla: "Mmmm, what's this stuff inside?"

Jenna never did find the other half to the only egg she got during the hunt, but that's okay...she was as happy as can be with her bottle of bubbles.  

Oh boy, Layla is after Addi's basket again!

 Sweet Addi was blowing bubbles for Layla.

 Time to go home...I think this one sums it up!

 Thank you to the Link Family for organizing such a fun morning!  We'll see you next year!
