Saturday we all packed up the truck and headed out to Okarche for The Annual Baustert Easter Egg Hunt. It is always so much fun to go to Uncle Mike and Aunt Gina's and have a wonderful meal and great conversation with the family! But first we have The Hunt!!
We shuffle all the little ones to the back of the house, or if they aren't too excited, we can get them back into the garage. (we have to keep them away from the windows, NO PEEKING!!) Then the older boys take all the eggs and spread them all around Uncle Mike's yard. Not sure if they have fun doing this, but they do it for us every year. Some money might exchange hands, but I am not sure. They do a darn good job too.
When it is time, all the little ones pile up behind the front door, the door is opened and chaos commences!! This year Aunt Tami suggested that it should be "ladies first". So the four little girls headed out the door but were soon overtaken by the boys.
Katelynn was a bit shy at first, but once she realized what she was supposed to do there was no turning back! She took off after eggs and filled up her basket in a hurry.

I love the wind whipping through her hair in this picture.
She was on a mission!!!
Aubrey wasn't old enough to participate this year. Aubrey and Daddy hung out and gave Miss K a few pointers here and there, but just wait until next year. Katelynn will know what needs to be done and we will be walking Aubrey around to get her eggs. So excited for that!!
After dinner, we headed back to the city to Lolli and Pops house to see some of the family and have another wonderful meal!
The Holidays are such an amazing time. Being able to spend these special days with our family and our little girls, it makes it so much sweeter.
