The Hunt

"Wow! Look at that!"

Benjamin Bunny trampled Grammie's flower garden. Luckily, unlike Farmer McGreggor, Grammie said she could care less. We will work on how to "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" as things green up.

The hunt became more challenging for a while as Benjamin refused to put down loot from the first few eggs found (note the purple octopus toy in one hand, and a small chocolate rabbit in the other).

Ben continued to carry the purple octopus, thus expediting the hunt by postponing the "opening" stage of the egg finding.
Ben was REALLY good at finding eggs. The Easter Bunny could have been much sneakier. However, Ben had a really great time finding the thirty-or-so, colorful, treasure-filled ellipsoids.
(Note to the Easter Bunny: count them before hiding them!)

"There's one over there!"

Hippity, Hoppity, Ben is on his way!

Regarding Grammie's garden figurines, Ben said, "Oh, that's so cute!"
Ah, Springtime has finally arrived at the base of the Spokane Valley Foothills.

It was the perfect weather for an Easter Egg hunt!
The sun was shining, the birds were chirping and the squirrels were chattering away.

Grammie has the perfect yard for an egg hunt! These pictures don't do it justice. She has lovely gardens all around once the weather permits.

Benjamin stayed very busy. He could not be distracted as he worked steadily to fill his basket.

I am not sure if he believed us when we said he had found them all. He didn't want it to be over, but he was willing to take a chocolate break.

  1. We had a terrific sunny Easter morning to enjoy watching the Benbug track down his eggs while all the adults drank their precious java. Not sure when Ben will come down off his sugar high, but it should be any day now.
