A Very Full Day . . .


From early morning Easter baskets for the visiting great nephews . . .

To an egg hunt for the two still-in-their jammies little boys . . .
 
 

to the big party down at the lower place . . .
 

and three more egg hunts for different age groups . . .
 
 

And lots of fun on a beautiful day . . .
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A good time was had by all.

These were somewhat random photos. 
I'll be putting together a web album of the party later in the week
 and will post the link here on the blog

I love how all age groups were represented! that's the way a holiday should be, in my sentimental mind.

Some party! as ever. It all looks SUCH fun Vicki and in the perfect setting.
We've had our Easter party too but it wasn't on that scale (hee hee).
Love your pictures.

I'll bet you are exhausted this morning, but the very full day was well worth it. I loved all of the photographs but was drawn to the one with the small boy and girl with guitars. Thanks for sharing this tradition with us.

Just fabulous!

I had to pop in and so glad I did...I am fascinated by the hoopla of family and community celebrations, in spite of the fact that I am (and always have been) extremely solitary so rarely participate in them. I guess I get my 'connection' vicariously. ;-) Love your photos and the joyful energy they exude in abundance.

It all looks wonderful fun. What lovely memories you're creating - it's got to be worth all the effort. I'd love to know more about the musical gentleman with the luxuriant beard.
