The Hunt

April 5, 2012

This Sunday is Easter Sunday

 

 

A big day for the Hutchinson family

 

 

Every year….

 

 

 

After we go to Mass….

 

 

 

We all head over to my Mom’s house

 

For Easter Brunch

 

 

 

Everybody chips in….

 

 

 

We have it down pat by now…

.

 

 

We all bring a dish

 

 

 

My sister Maureen coordinates

 

 

Janet always brings her sausage and egg casserole

 

 

 

A family favorite

 

 

 

There so much food there

 

You would think there were a 100….

 

People there

 

 

 

 

In a few years we may not be off the mark..

 

 

 

If all the grandchildren start having kids

 

We should hit the 100 mark pretty fast

 

 

 

After the meal is done….

 

 

 

 

The fun begins

 

 

 

We do an Easter egg hunt with a twist

 

 

 

There is a battle for the……

 

 

 

Hutch Trophy

 

 

 

This is a competition between the adults and children

 

 

 

We buy 2 puzzles and we take the pieces…..

 

 

 

And place each piece in a plastic egg

 

 

 

Then the children take their puzzle eggs and hide it

 

In the front yard

 

 

 

While the adults take their puzzle eggs

 

And hide them in the back yard

 

 

 

It can be vice a versa…..

 

 

 

When all the eggs are hidden, we meet inside

 

 

And then….

 

 

 

We are off and running

 

 

 

 

Who can find all the plastic eggs and….

 

 

 

Assemble their puzzle first

 

 

 

 

Think there is a little bit of competition going on?

 

 

 

Last summer I told you about the Hutch Olympics….

 

 

 

 

This is training

 

 

 

 

 

Each team is fighting to get bragging rights

 

 

 

The trophy sits in my mom’s kitchen all year….

 

 

 

As a gentle reminder…

 

 

 

 

 

 

Family get togethers’ are great

 

 

There is a special bond that is reinforced

 

 

 

 

Time and time again

 

 

We all find ourselves laughing….

 

 

 

When we all……..

 

 

 

Are acting like children

 

 

 

We remember the simple……

 

 

 

Pleasures that life brings

 

 

 

 

 

Enjoy and……

 

 

 

Treasure the time……

 

 

 

You share with your family

 

 

 

 

It is one of life’s little miracles

 

 

 

 

Happy Easter and Happy Passover to all

 

My family and friends
