First Egg Hunt

 Saturday I took Connor and Cooper to an egg hunt sponsored by our church. This was Cooper’s first time to hunt eggs. Look for the blue in the pictures, and visit Smiling Sally for lots more blue.

As you can see from the look on his face, he was taking everything in. It usually takes him awhile to adjust to a new situation, and he usually spends several minutes staring at everyone and everything with his mouth open!

After the hunt started, he still wasn’t quite sure what this was all about! IMG_0508

He finds his first egg!

Cooper decides he wants to unload the blue grass and eggs, which he calls balls!

They were both dressed alike with Alabama T Shirts and jeans. I did my best to get a decent shot of them together. This one was snapped just as Cooper tumbled off the swing. He didn’t cry-just got right up and refused to get back up there.

One the second hunt, Connor wanted to stay with little brother and help him. Wasn’t that sweet?

And one last pic…..

I found out how hard it was to get a decent picture with them both in it. This was about the best I could do!

Thanks for stopping by, and hope you have a wonderful Monday.

Cooper and Conner are beautiful! What fun that first egg hunt, must have been.

I just had the thought, yesterday was Noah's first egg hunt, since he was only a few months old last Easter. Our egg hunt was at our daughter and son in law's home.

It looks like they had a lot of fun!

Cute pictures! I had to laugh at your comment about getting a decent photo of the two of them at the same time...I feel your pain. I have a 4-year old and a 2-year old and for the holidays I just had to do a photomailer that allowed for individual pics...just couldn't get a decent snapshot of the 2 of them at the same time!

Happy Blue/Easter Monday and blessings to you from Kansas,
Valerie

Hi Diane
Cooper is beginning to look more like a little boy and less like a baby. They grow too fast! It looks like Connor found a lot of eggs this year. What great memories.

Hugs, Pat

Diane, Connor and Cooper are such handsome little boys. The egg hunt was so cute. I think Cooper is still confused. LOL. Next year he will really get into it trust me. The grass out of the basket gave me a chuckle. Why do you need grass anyway? You can't eat it!!! LOL.

Hugs...Jeanne

What adorable children! It looks like that had a wonderful Easter!
This is my first visit to your blog. I found you on bj's blog and since she knows such fantastic bloggers, I thought I would pop in and introduce myself.
I wasn't sure what the "Mr. Linky's Magical Widget" was ..so...I wasn't sure about signing up. I was going to list my coffee table that I found on a curb... :) but ..thought I would ask first.
I have enjoyed my visit and your lamp is lovely!
~smiles and love to you~
