Easter Egg (swim) Hunt

So it's no surprise to us that the rain came down in buckets for our Easter Egg Hunt today.  We had  a few families cancel, however, more came than cancelled, so that was a blessing!


The 1st set of pictures were taken a few days before the hunt, in anticipation of rain...lol




This was taken in the front of our property, up on a little hill...the sun hits this spot just perfect.



(I can't remember where i downloaded this from, but I will find out and correct the post)


See the "credits" for the Shindig Parties Etsy shop for the paper printables.



All the kids got to take home a big iced Egg Cookie.

I used my new silhouette machines for the chicks and bunny cut outs.


Gotta have the peeps!




Dollar Tree picks...{heart} Dollar Tree!



These pictures were taken 2 days later (today) when we had an abundance of liquid sunshine!
Kids still had a ball!


Nice bog in the yard huh! lol


Gotta love these IKEA frames!  Double sided...I am sure you will see them in every party I do!


Under the deck on the 1st floor patio...fit everyone...with the patio heater cranking, we were fine!




Last minute idea...had a hot chocolate bar with mini marshmallows, Whipped Cream, a crock pot of hot chocolate and a bottle of Peppermint Schnapps for the adults...





Found two of these cute bunny ceramic dishes for $ 1 at the thrift store.


Gotta have the water bottles....again, see credits at the bottom for the printable Etsy shop link


Cute paper straws, the KIDS LOVED THEM!  Nice to please kids with small jestures!  
See the Etsy shop below to order these.






Ran to the Dollar Tree hours before the party to get the parents some "party favors"..lol...they all wore them.


Almost ready to hunt!


GO!









My husband and I hid 250 filled eggs for the kids!  They hit the jackpot! 

Two hours later, 1 little girl found the last 3!





Lunch time!  
Meatballs, Ziti, Salad, fresh bread and more...



Kids loved the mud puddles...lol



Cupcakes and sugar cookies for dessert!  

All in all, a great day!  

The hubby and I got to get out in the evening for a 2 hour dinner at a new burger joint! 
Then the sun came out...figures huh!


The printables for the banners, paper, tags, cupcake holders, water bottle labels - Shindig Parties she is wonderful to work with and quick!

For the paper straws: Dime Store Buddy

Tomorrow I am hosting Easter Dinner for 7 adults and 3 kids.....looking forward to it!

I think you did a great job of rescuing the egg hunt from the rain! Everything was so adorable and the kids in their raincoats was just too cute! I've got to try out my Silhouette! You made such cute things with yours. Thanks for linking!
