Easter 2016

Easter 2016 consisted of a scavenger and easter egg hunt
Mekenzei got to go first
They had so much fun looking for their clues to their items
Having 2 acres gives us a huge advantage to hide eggs everywhere
We typically make them go from the front to back of the property and in between as they work through clue by clue to their final clue leading to their hidden item
The boys helped Mekenzei with some of her clues
It took her a while to find her item in this shed. Lucky wanted to know what she was removing and if it was for him, this is where his feed is stored
Even the dogs enjoy hunting along with the kids, they don't truly understand but are excited over the commotion
MeKenzei had wanted a bible to dig further into studying the Word of the Lord. I found this one that seemed perfect for her. We bought some tabs as well as that was a feature that she desired but that this one didn't include. Shes still waiting for the Lord to direct her upon a path for her scholastic future and career but for now she is doing her part by learning more about what he says and what his promises are for her life.
They boys joined in on their hunt this year. So much happens all year while Jakob is at school, so its harder to give clues and have him truly know what he is hunting for, where to go, besides they had a combined item this year as well. A window unit for the loft, something truly needed since Izzy will continue living with us and she is staying in Jakob's room, so he has to bunk this summer with Zekaryah, in a loft that isn't even 4 foot tall.
Easter felt a little rushed for us. Jakob's spring break is always the week before their spring break, so we only had a weekend to fit in family time. We did make the best of it though.
Lucky was just like the dogs, he wanted to go everywhere they were going and join in on the fun.
I had to remind Zekaryah to let Jakob read and figure out some of the clues as well. Its funny that even at 20 years old he was still enjoying a family tradition.
I think this guy enjoys it more than anyone~
One clue we nearly have every year leads to the garden and it says salsa is made from here.
I don't think these dogs could have been any happier to run back and forth through the yard
MeKenzei gets pretty silly while they are looking for their clues, of course she knew what their item was and where too.
I truly love having them all together. I look forward to years from now when their children come and have the same traditions.
Easter is about Christ and what comes from his death and resurrection. We are truly blessed to have the gift of eternal life with one another.
I know for this girly, having her brother home for a few days was gift enough. She sure misses him while he is away at college.
