egg hunt and ice cream

A couple nights ago Dad and Mom hid a few dozen eggs and did an egg hunt for Ivan, Ellen, Andrew and Lana. The blinds were closed so they couldn’t see where they were hiding them. Well, Willie kept peeking out them!

Looking in every possible hiding spot…egg hunt pictures-1

Counting the eggs when they were part way through to see how many they’d gotten.

Then, when they thought they’d gotten all 43, they counted all of them. This piece of paper says that he can get ice cream!

He was so happy when he opened this egg and found a quarter! There were a few of them that had quarters, so each of us got one.

Lana was enjoying munching away on her Skittles.

Then, Dad decided that we could go ahead and get ice cream that night. So we went to McDonalds

It was great to do something fun all together! Everyday we get opportunities to make lasting memories, and too often we just don’t make the time and take the effort to do so. We (and I) have to remember that we only get this time together, we really aren’t promised tomorrow. Take some time together as a family today!

“In the house of the righteous is much treasure: but in the revenues of the wicked is trouble.”

{Proverbs 15:6}
