Easter Egg Hunt

Here are the photos from the Easter egg hunt that Ryan (and Pat) did the weekend before Easter.  Ryan was in the 1-3 year old age group.  This is a pic of the starting line.  Unfortunately people were not very considerate of letting the people in the back enter the egg hunt before grabbing all the eggs placed right at the start.  It probably would have been wiser of them to go to the farther parts of the field to collect eggs so that the others could start the hunt at the same time too.  It appeared the choice for people in the back like Pat was either let all the front people take all the eggs or trample them.  I had instructed Pat before he went out there to kick the parents if he needed, but he MUST help Ryan get just ONE egg.    
And they did get their ONE egg, and Ryan was so proud.  
Ryan thought that egg was the greatest thing ever.  
He was so happy, and I'll never forget the look on his face.  
After the hunt, Ryan loved running through the fields by himself.  He enjoys having his freedom, and is not scared one bit about losing his parents.  
Pat snapped this photo of me and Ryan at the end of the event.  Overall, it was a very fun day.
