We spent Easter weekend down with Gary's family. The day before we dyed eggs with the kiddos. No easy feat since three of them are between 22 and 30 months. Let's just say by the time we were done it was just Joan, Heather and me dying eggs for the kiddos. We had a great time though.

On Sunday, we were at Little Union and at the end of services we had a couple ask for a home at the Church. After lunch they were baptized, and then we headed over to Gary's great uncle's house, where the entire Varnum family gets together. They get together twice a year for Easter and for Christmas Eve, and there is always a ton of food and visiting. We didn't get to visit near as much as we liked since we were at Church until after 3, but then again like most family get togethers, we never seem to have enough time to visit.

Britt did a pretty good job with hunting eggs last year, as long as we helped point out where they were. This time after Gary got him started he didn't need any help finding the eggs. Occasionally he would need a little direction. He had no trouble finding the eggs on the ground, but the ones up higher sometimes he needed a hint. He was still young enough, that his focus was on the eggs he was hunting not the eggs in his basket. Gary took his eggs out two or three times to re-hide. I really think he could have hunted eggs till dark.

Ruth didn't hunt for eggs, but she did sit around and talk with everyone. She would watch a conversation, and look oh so serious before she would launch into her own opinion on the topic. Aunt Joanna loved on her for the longest time, and I was quite content to take a break from her. All in all, we had a wonderful day.
