For weeks we have been planning and getting excited about our Easter Egg Hunt. Last year the weather was cold and wet ... it may have even snowed that morning ... so the hunt was held in a little building on campus. This year we were really hoping for better weather.
We awoke to a beautiful morning! And the hunt was held a on the amazing grounds of King's College. The sun burned through the clouds and warmed up the day perfectly.
The kids had a wonderful time hunting for eggs. The hunt was held over the lawns and across the buildings. There was even a coin hunt on the stones by the chapel.
Everything has come into to life all over Aberdeen. Spring is here! I loved this tree in full bloom in the middle of the field.
After hunting for eggs, the kids emptied the contents of their eggs into their baskets, consuming a good amount of candy in the process.
We opened the Resurrection Eggs as a group and enjoyed the story they told of the death and resurrection of Christ.
The dark clouds blew over, without dumping any rain, so we stayed out for a picnic lunch with our friends.
After lunch, there was a spontaneous game of baseball with all the kids. Joshua had the best fun, and it so excited to get his own bat and ball.
It was so sweet to see the boys giving the little kids a turn as well. I was surprised how long the game lasted. The kids would have stayed for another hour or two.
We are so thankful for the wonderful community we have here. There are some more really great pictures at Easter Egg Hunt - April 2011. Happy Easter!
