Fancy Babies and Blindfolded Easter Egg Hunts

Tuesday, April 2, 2013

I know I'm a few days late but I thought I'd share a quick Easter recap (mainly because I want to share some adorable pictures of my niece!)

We normally have Easter at my parent's house but it is kind of a disaster at the moment and in various stages of renovation so my aunt was kind enough to host down in Woburn.  I really missed Easter last year while away from my family so it was great to get to celebrate again.

On my mom's side (who we celebrate Easter with) I am the third oldest grandchild and the oldest granddaughter.  This means I lucked out and for years got to enjoy watching my younger cousins do their Easter egg hunt even if I was too old to really participate.  Two years ago, however, even my youngest cousins decided that they were "too old" to do it.  This, of course, was not going to fly so I came up with a new game.  Ok, it's the same game... we just added blindfolds.  Each of the older cousins would partner up with someone and would be led around blindfolded trying to get eggs.  We started this two years ago and, while I'm not sure they did it last year while I was gone, everyone was up for it again this year.  I was a little disappointed in my partner's performance (ehm, Mom) but even with my measly two eggs it was still an amazingly hilarious game.

post-Easter egg hunt this year


  1. This is a quite brilliant addition to hunting for easter eggs! What fun!

  2. Sounds like lots of fun! I think it is so cool that you play that Easter egg hunting game together! And the dog picture is so precious! Thanks for making me laugh!

  3. The game actually sounds really fun! I have no young cousins or other family members unfortunately, so haven't done any Easter egg hunting for quite some time. I also never come home from school for that... but one day I hope I can do it with some kids of my own!
