Annual Maillet Easter Egg Hunt :: 2010 edition

This was the sixth year for our family's Annual Maillet Easter Egg Hunt. I say it every year, my brother and SIL are the best-est ever to host this family reunion on Easter Sunday. Weather was perfect, everyone stayed outside to watch or to participate. The ''rule master'' atop his big rock going through the rules of the game.

First part of the challenge was to find plastic eggs hidden in the little wooded area. Inside each plastic colored egg was a foil wrapped chocolate egg.

After this was completed we had to head back to find out what the rule master had to say in regards to part two. Ginette, me and my little brother Marc heading back.

Listening attentively to part two of the rules - Denise and Ginette.

Which was to play mini-putt to try and hit a plastic '' very wably'' plastic egg in the hole in the least amount of hits... I had to hit mine 19 times before I got it in. Did I say it was a very wably egg....

After the mini-putt challenge (and no I did'nt have the least hits, Dave did with a hole-in-one) the rule master announces that as we know there is always a twist to the egg hunt challenges. The winner of the trophy wasn't the one with the least hits but the one participant that had a green foil wrapped chocolate in his plastic egg from part one of the hunt. The winner was a friend of the family, Greg White. Dave won second prize for his hole-in-one.

awesome! what a fun family tradition :) Hid easter eggs for the first time for Andrew today- it was fun. I would love to do something like what you just described one day.

Was in Clare actually, presenting at U-Sainte Anne on Thursday- and was down there the week before for the dépistage précoce- fun to be around such a fantastic group of people!

Joyeuse Pâques!

Sounds like fun , we may have to try that egg golf game next year. Curious J loves playing putt-putt , so he would get a kick out of that game since he's getting older. Thanks for sharing the idea.
I love to see everyone (adults and kids ) having fun , makes for alot of smiles.

Happy Belated Easter !
