one year we found a egg in July when we were raking out the monkey grass....and it was a boiled egg...not a fun thing to hit...LOL

Aimee said...

How fun! Those are great hiding places! My husband and I can't wait to hide the eggs for our boys this year!!

fourwilkies said...

154 eggs? Wow - I hope your kids find them all, not the dogs!

texwisgirl said...

oh this was fun! but i do worry about the dogs getting into chocolate! hunt, kids, hunt!

Meg said...

My sister was telling me of a commercial where the dad painted all the eggs camouflage. Hehe. I like your hiding places. :)

Farm Girl said...

Great pictures!

darlin said...

This is awesome Dawn! When is the hunt? Great shots btw and a very blessed and Happy Easter.

Carmi said...

I love the snow. I'm kinda a little sad that it's almost all gone here.

I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend with your family, Dawn. Only good things, today and every day.

Trisha said...

Oh I love a good hunt!! Sometimes the I get to the goodies before the bunny even gets a chance to hide them :)

Rick said...

Careful they don't melt in that HOT SUN ! I think your kids will have a blast finding these - and a bigger blast eating them all.

Happy Easter Dawn !

What a cleaver idea for your photos today. I love it.

Alan O'Riordan said...

Those dogs' superior scent tracking skills will be put to very good use this weekend:-)

Judy said...

We haven't done a hunt in so long...That's the one thing that I miss when kids grow up, doing fun things like Easter egg hunts with them. I sure hope they find them all ;)

Tammy said...

What fun! I miss that stuff.
Makes me long for grandkids ;)
HAPPY EASTER!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

CHOCOLATE!!!!

Looks like a fun (and rewarding) hunt.

Julie said...

Those eggs are great! Hiding spots are beautiful!

I have not done one single thing yet for Easter. I'm hoping my mother in law pulls through for me on this one. I guess I still have tonight to try to get something done. I feel like a total loser. My poor kiddos :-(

Some bunny's been busy.

This made me think of year ago letting my big dog out and not knowing the neighbors had skillfully hidden eggs for when their boys woke up.He was in his second one before i got him in.

Buttons said...

Dawn this looks like so much fun. I love this idea. Beautiful pics. Have fun. It is pouring rain here for the whole weekend.
I have not done anything for Easter and I have a house full of company I just am too busy or maybe lazy. My little girl comes in tomorrow I will go into hyper Easter mode then. Happy Easter.

You guys are going to have such fun. When my kids were little all the cousins would come to our Easter egg hunt. We have the best pictures of them all. Have a wonderful day and take lots of pictures.

Farmchick said...

What a lot of eggs! And chocolate ones at that!

Karen S. said...

You know what makes me smiling...looking at this? It's finding random undiscovered little foil eggs months later....! Happy Easter...great hunting ahead for your family!

Nancy said...

I guess we're all assuming they are chocolate eggs. Maybe mommy pulled a fast one and they're something healthy, like hummus and bean sprouts. ;)

Saz said...

Wow! Looks like the kids and dogs are going to have a lot of fun there!

Debbie said...

154 eggs, wow, that's a lot of eggs!! looks like you have some great hiding spots, i always LOVED picking those spots. it's almost as much fun as watching them find them. the big question is, when will the last one be found?!?!?

Tracy said...

that was really cool Dawn...it reminded me of a year my sister and I were little and we took the hard boiled eggs outside to hide them. Imagine my mother's fret when we couldn't find them all!? Ah we eventually did but by that time, they certainly weren't fit to eat :)
Happy Easter!

sage said...

Happy Easter, Dawn! That's a lot of eggs to hide.

Allison said...

Cuteness! My sister-in-law has been begging me to hide chocolate eggs instead of real. She says it's too gross to eat all 80 eggs (and having grown up on the farm, she won't dare waste a one!).

heehee. You've won my heart here. I'll break the good news to her tomorrow. Maybe we can do half-half. :D Happy Easter, Dawn!

Liesl said...

Tally Ho! Hunt,hunt! A lovely weekend for you and your family too Dawn!

Gary said...

I'll bet the kids found all the eggs!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

heather yalin said...

154!? You are the mama extraordinaire! How fun!

Elizabeth Grimes said...

Wow! That is quite a lot of work hiding 154 eggs! They sure made some fun photos and I know you'll have fun tomorrow finding and eating them. :) Have a great hunt!!! Happy Easter!!!

laughwithusblog said...

The eggs look beautiful too. Mine are just plain old plastic! Happy Easter!

Flora said...

Did you have as much fun hiding them and the kids had finding them?

Randy said...

Brings back memories of our egg hunts as a kid. Great shot!

Peter said...

Wow I think I found one of your eggs down here in Sydney, they probably rolled down a hole! (And I am afraid I ate it)

rosaria said...

Happy Easter!
Just following you along gave me a great workout and enough looks and smells of chocolate eggs to last me all week.
Thanks for such a creative, uplifting post.

Jack said...

Can I join the hunt next year? It looks like lots of fun. Happy Easter! To you, to the four kids, and to the two dogs.

beth said...

how fun !
along with our colored eggs, we did brown and grey and grass green eggs this year....just 12 of them.....as they are hard to find :)

our hunt is later this afternoon.......
happy easter

blessedmom's simple home said...

What a fun day. I hope they were all found :-)
Blessings,
Marcia

floweringmama said...

sassyshoediary said...

Good thing you counted! Are those homemade eggs? They look so pretty!

Leontien

bon bon said...

love that you took photos along the way! great way to offer the kids some hints too if they don't find them all!

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

Boy, you take this Easter egg stuff seriously, don't you. 154 eggs? All made out of Godiva chocolate too, right?

GardenofDaisies said...

Looks like fun! Did they find all 154 eggs? We always find one or two eggs that were missed in the summer.

Dani said...

Im sure your family had fun.
We don't have such tradition. Will share some photos later.

Thank you as always for visiting my blog.

Happy Easter!~

Country Mouse Studio said...

A lot of eggs, I'd be hiding them in groups or bags full :O)

Pat Tillett said...

We have five kids (all adults now), but also used to have some MAJOR easter egg hunts!
I like the foil on the eggs.
Nice pics!
