Egg Hunt

Where do you hide Easter eggs in this high desert? You hide them where you can. There were about 250 eggs to hide for five children. Does this look like desperation? You absolutely have to click for big.

How about this? Where do you hide Easter eggs when the places to hide simply don't present themselves.

How subtle is this? Since nothing is growing, hiding places are limited, or not.

Keep in mind that the children are relegated to the upstairs until they get the say-so. The anticipation builds, they burst from the house and the hunt is on. The year it snowed and they had to hunt in the house - well, the dogs are still traumatized. The dads hide the eggs and it's not easy, but the kids don't care. Just open the door~

Do you not love dads hiding Easter eggs.

Moms took charge of egg dyeing on the deck.

Alexia loves to have her picture taken. She is going to participate in the University's "Trashion" show next Tuesday for Earth Day. She attends preschool at the University. I wish I could show you the drawing she made of her dress, which is on my phone and not here - oh well. She has completed it, all from recycled objects. Her teachers have practiced runway techniques, can you tell? I uploaded this Easter set to my Flickr account and I emailed to all of our family. The most views any picture had was four, until Alexia. This last shot garnered 25 views! Her parents are in trouble, but they already know that.

Desperate times call for inventiveness. Love the eggs on the truck! :-)

Well at least the kids found the eggs without to much trouble. I agree with MiniKat - Egg truck sure cute.

You know, if you're going to have egg on your truck, that is one of the best possible ways for it to happen.

Very cute...and a good way to savor this time, which in retrospect will be so fleeting.

Easter egg hiding in the high desert is always a challenge, but the truck picture brought back some memories! lol

You'd think someone would market camo plastic eggs for just such environs!

My mom used to hide eggs inside the piano on rainy Easter Sundays. Mom was superb at egg concealment.

Love the photo of the dads hard at work. --Syl
