A "Hike" and a Hunt

Yesterday we went on a "hike" as the kids called it.  Really it was more of a walk through some tall grass and brush next to the river.  It was a beautiful day so we decided to be out and enjoy it.  We went down to Scotts Bottom and found a trail to wander down.  When we got there, there was a family hiding eggs in the bushes and grass getting ready for an egg hunt.  The kids got really excited when they saw it until we told them it was not for them!  We went on our little walk through the woods discovering all sorts of fun things.  Some one had started piling up logs to look like a house, some one else had built a stick teepee with a fire pit.  We found a rock that looked like a heart.  Zeke found lots of rocks to add to his collection and we found some really soft sand (the highlight for Olivia).  When we got back to our starting point we noticed that the egg hunt was over - the bushes had been cleaned out!  However, we noticed an egg still laying in a clump of tall grass.  Zane got it and it was full of candy!  Then the hunt was on!  The kids spread out looking for missed eggs.  Amazingly each kid walked away with at least one egg full of candy!  What a great bonus to end on!  The kids want to go back next week and see if they can find any more eggs...
