Egg Hunt on the Farm

Passing Notes Today:  Mrs. Williams


When I was a little girl one of the reasons I looked forward to Easter was because I knew that each year we would be headed to a family friend's farm for an awesome egg hunt.  That egg hunt was no joke.  They boiled and died thousands of eggs, hid them in different areas around the farm for different age groups of kids, offered tractor rides, and hosted good old family fun.  There were even horses on the farm.  One year as I leaned in to look at the horses, I learned what it felt like to touch an electric fence...wouldn't recommend it.

Last year, I lectured my boys on the dangers of electric fences as we drove them to that very same farm that I went to as a child to hunt for some eggs.  Cars lined the road for miles as family after family piled out of their cars and headed to the barn for the egg hunt instructions to begin.

Every child gets a candy filled egg after they check in.

Then, the kids and families head to their age-group-egg-hunt-location and the hunting begins!

Even with all the kids, there are plenty of eggs to be found.

After all the eggs are found, we took the muddy path to the tractor.
Just waiting for the tractor to get moving.

There's a pond on the farm.  So, of course, we had to walk across a field to check it out.

Time for some serious puddle jumping.

And then...we headed home.

Perhaps there's an egg hunt in your near future...whether it's in your living room, backyard, or on the farm, my only advice is this...avoid the electric fence.

Happy Hunting,
