oh hey, friday | adult egg hunts + ROAD TRIP!

It is currently 10:30 Thursday night, and I am sitting here waiting for some banana bread to bake.
I don't even know why I thought it was a good idea to do this when I am already going to get about zero hours of sleep.

We are waking up in four hours to drive to WA to my farmer's sister's house.
Her littlest cutie is turning one.
AND her other two boys have birthdays too.
And it is my mother in laws birthday.
Basically it is birthday season.

I am not going to write about 5 things, because... I'm feeling rebellious.
But I am going to share with you our Easter.
Last week I shared with you some things that I was planning on doing.
We did exactly ONE of them.
Colored our eggs.
And I didn't even take pictures.

Our super fun hungry hungry hippos game we were going to play... amazon failed me, and the balls didn't arrive on time.
EVEN when I overnighted them on Wednesday.

I also didn't bake a thing.
And no one even cared.

Our day went a little something like this...
My in laws and Karli and her family showed up at 10.
We ate a super delicious, and pretty healthy, brunch.
The farmer's chatted nonstop farming, while the kids ran around happily screaming.
We made them all stop to take pictures, which no one was excited about...
except maybe these two...

Then we hid a bunch of eggs for the kids find.
We like to get that part over with quickly, because we all know, that the best part about easter is actually the adult egg hunts.
We put Bennett down for a nap, and a movie on for the big kids, and then we got busy.

This years rules were as follows:
-break up into teams of two.
-one team of two hides the eggs.
-when the hunt begins, you and your partner must always be either holding hands, or holding onto the basket tougher.
- team with the most eggs wins.
Side note: My farmer decided to surprise us all, and come out dressed as a pokemon.
Karli's farmer is pretending to NOT like it, but we all know that is lie.
He proceeded to wear it for the rest of the day also.

I don't want to brag, but I'm pretty sure Karli and I won all of the egg hunts.
We also hid them pretty good.

After the intense competition, we decided to keep it up and play some baseball with the kids.
There were definitely some home runs (not by me) and significant amount of strike outs (by me).

It was, yet again, a perfect day!

What did you do!?
Leave a comment and tell me all about it.

AND then link up!


  1. I'm cracking up at the picture of all the kids and some of them upset. It probably sounds horrible, but I find crying kid pics to be entertaining. Your oldest son with Kaye is just too adorable. The adult egg hunt definitely sounds like the best part.

    1. Apparently you and I are both bad people then because I have numerous pics of my own babe crying and it kiiiiinda makes me smile.

  2. I love the idea of an adult egg hunt. Especially if the adults dress up! HA!
