This past weekend was filled with Easter activities. Our six kids opened their Easter baskets Friday and seemed happy with what they got. We did it that night because my step-daughters were going to be with their mothers for the holiday.
On Sunday, my husband and I, along with my three kids, went to a community center for a family gathering. Lots of people were there and a good time was had by all. We ate lots of food with country ham, fried turkey, and catfish as the main dishes. Games were played by kids and adults, an Easter egg hunt was held with candy and prizes, kites were flown, and RC cars were raced.
The Easter egg hunt was a big hit. My son, Logan, received over 21 prizes! Every kid got lots of candy and toys.
This is me blindfolded playing "Can You Milk the Rabbit?" It was played along the lines of Pin the Tail on the Donkey. It was hard to pinpoint where the rabbit's udders were when you were being spun around by numerous people. There were other games played such as finding the golden egg, counting the number of jelly beans in a jar, and a door prize. This one drew lots of laughs.
This is my newest niece, Zoe. She was six days old in this picture.
My boys, Logan and Adam, received lots of nice prizes. These were a couple of their favorites.
This is my niece with her two young ones and their Easter baskets full of eggs.
It's rare that I'm able to get a good shot of my great-niece. She doesn't much care for the camera, which is a rare thing with my family.
We couldn't keep technology out of this rural town. My sister brought her laptop along, dropped the tailgate on my truck, and surfed the web.
This is me and my husband. The poster on the right was made by my sister and mom with the Cricut machine. They were in charge of decorating the community center.
My great-niece had a snack before everyone else and chowed down on the Mac & Cheese.
