Easter Egg Hunt

Each year my brother and his wife host the Annual Maillet Easter Egg Hunt which takes place on Easter Sunday. This year was the fourth. They are an amazing couple, they put in sooooooo much work in organizing this event for family and friends. Actually, it's the only time of the year the family really gets together to play and laugh.

Below - the ''rule master'' (aka my brother the co-host) reading the rules and regulations.

This year we were not hunting for eggs, we were looking to find wooden puzzle pieces in the forest (in baskets). Note - this egg hunt is so well organized and fair to everyone, it's for children and adults alike.

This lovely wooded area is their backyard... so, so beautiful.


Participants counting their puzzle pieces because at the end of the trail you HAD to have 20 pieces...

After everyone was back to the house we all had to put together our puzzles and of course the 20 pieces you had did'nt make up the puzzle... you had to barter with others to get the pieces you needed. What fun !!!!!

And the winner is...

Denise Sullivan, a friend of the Maillet Family. Way to go Din ! see ya next year.

that looks like fun - it also looks like most of your snow is gone - I wish we could say the same - we are expecting another 5 cm tonight and tomorrow :(
