Easter Egg hunt

Laura has been shopping for eggs and has set out an Easter egg hunt in the garden for the others.

Her trolley is now empty as she checks the locations of all the hidden eggs
"Happy Easter everyone! We are having an Easter Egg hunt. Please be friendly, no pushing or shoving."
Florence is the first to find a pretty basket decorated with butterflies.
She sees there are several eggs in this basket
Melanie finds a bunny slipper full of eggs in the flowery undergrowth.
Isabel brings her shopping trolley along as she looks for eggs
"What's that" she thinks as she sees something peeping out from the flowers
Isabel has found an Easter chick!
"I can't wait to eat this later."
Edmund sees a pair of bunny ears poking out of the flowers and runs towards them
He wobbles and nearly falls over as he climbs towards the bunny ears
Trying to keep his balance Edmund approaches the bunny basket
But falls on his tummy just as he gets to them and admires the large collection of eggs in the basket.
Nicholas James, Reuben and Trendon Elliott find a treasure chest...
... filled with eggs!
Timothy and Miranda go looking through the flowers together
They find a bunny slipper filled with eggs
Everyone loads their eggs into the wagon and make their way to the picnic rug
Edmund, Florence and Isabel admire their eggs and chick
Miranda has one bunny slipper of eggs
while Melanie has the other bunny slipper
Laura and Clemence have no eggs and relax as they watch the others with their eggs
The bigger boys gather around the treasure chest of eggs
Edmund is delighted with his large basket of eggs
What is the difference between this basket of eggs and a few minutes earlier?
Edmund's basket of eggs doesn't seem so full...
Edmund looks in his basket of colourful eggs, which seems a little emptier than before
Edmund looks at the girls - his basket only has a few eggs now
Edmund holds a green egg
Clemence comes to look in Edmund's egg basket
Clemence looks at Edmund enquiringly... there is no chocolate around Edmund's mouth
Reuben and Nicholas James have LOTS of colourful eggs ...
The big boys have plenty of colourful eggs while the treasure chest of light coloured eggs is still full!
Edmund and Clemence firmly hold onto the remaining eggs.  What naughty big boys!
Meanwhile Isabel is enjoying licking the top of the chocolate chick filled with smarties.
Florence sorts through her basket of eggs and chooses which ones to eat first
Miranda peers into her bunny slipper of eggs, she doesn't think she needs to share them with Timothy who has PLENTY of eggs now.
Laura has some eggs which Florence has kindly given her from the pretty basket
Happy Easter everyone - we hope you had a lovely day.

Looks like they all had a wonderful time and found lots of eggs on their Easter egg hunt! But what naughty big boys , taking poor Edmund's eggs , when they have so many of their own already!
I'm glad Clemence came to help him hang onto the few he had left! Hopefully Miss Dmd will sort those big boys out and make them give up some of their eggs!
After all there are more than enough for everyone :)

What a fun Easter egg hunt! I was going to say initially that it looked like Edmund hit the jackpot, but it appears that the older boys hoodwinked him. Still, that would have been a lot of candy for such a little guy. Happy Easter!

What a fabulous Easter Egg Hunt post, full of wonderful photos of all the excitement they had. Those boys were rather sneaky taking eggs while Edmund was looking away. Your garden looks gorgeous as well. Spring is such a lovely time of year when all the colour starts to show after the long dull winter.

What a delightful Easter egg hunt. Looks like everyone enjoyed themselves and found a hoard of scrumptious chocolate goodies to share and enjoy afterwards.
Reminded me of when I was in Junior school and each Easter we would be sent out into the school's garden to search for the nest of eggs (that held one famous Cadbury's chocolate egg for each child.) Each year I would wish that it was me who finally found it... but unfortunately that never happened.
There's obviously some very naughty, greedy boys over there. Hope that they were duly punished. Poor little Edmund with his slowly disappearing eggs... but I'm sure that he just enjoyed eating his few in the end as he always looks such a happy, contented little chappie.

That was truly delightful! I have one Sasha doll named Ezri Zephyrine and we only started our blog last month, so we are very new to it. I'm afraid she doesn't have any fun like your lovely dolls :( I really must rectify that. Thank you for sharing your dolls lovely Easter Egg Hunt x

WOW your garden must have been full to the brim with lovely eggs and the children had a great time finding them all. I hope nobody ate too many and ended up with tummy ache!
