Relay for Life Egg Hunt

Last Sunday was the Miss-Lou Team Extreme Egg Hunt for Relay for Life. It started at 1:00 p.m. and we barely made it. We walked up right at 1:00. It is hard to get somewhere on time so close after church. But, we made it.

Poor Jonah didn't understand the concept of waiting for the whistle to start. He kept going under the tape and trying to get an egg. We had to keep pulling him back.
When the whistle finally sounded, he took off. But, he was unimpressed with gathering large quantities of eggs. He found one and was satisfied. We had to keep coaxing him to keep looking.

If you live in our area, then you probably saw Jonah's picture in the newspaper this week. There is a picture of him at the egg hunt holding a block he found. He was so proud of that block. Well, a picture of him holding it ended up in the paper with a line under it saying "Jonah Glenn found more than eggs at the Relay for Life egg hunt!" We said he looked like a remedial egg hunter in the newspaper. Julia was on the front page with a basket full of eggs and Jonah was in the paper proudly holding a block. It made us laugh!
After all the eggs were found, we had to look through them to see if we won any prizes. Jonah wanted to eat every piece of candy he found in the eggs.

We were glad to see Julia, her mommy and Mrs. Rita when we walked up. Jonah and Julia love each other so much so it was fun that they got to experience the hunt together.

We also Matthew and Emily Probst there with their little nieces. Claudia and Madison had a large time at the egg hunt!
When the egg hunt was over, we walked a few feet over to the playground. We go to that playground pretty regularly so Jonah acted as if he owned the place. He loves to run and play and just be free!

After some time playing, we convinced Jonah to get back in his wagon so we could walk home. I don't think he realized home meant nap time. Otherwise, he would have put up a big fight!

I bet every child there had eggs in their basket, but no one else could claim they had a "block" -once again proving how special Jonah is!
