Annual Hamilton Family Easter Picnic

Easter was late this year and it had turned so warm too that I just knew we would be sweltering sitting under the cabana with the family. Lucky for us we had a cooling spell and a nice day in the low 80's. We had a nice visit with family and had very tasty food. The kids, 12 thru 4 in ages,  seemed to mingle among themselves better this year and all had a good time. The kids bring their bikes and scooters and have a fun time. There is also a stream that seems to attract them and so far no one has fallen into.

Of course we have out easter egg hunt  by hiding the eggs among the cactus and dry brush. Many of us got cactus pricks this year and perhaps because of the dry winter we have had. Gretchen hid 143 filled plastic eggs. Eliza found the golden egg this year which is filled with a $20.00 bill.

I have a pretty good extended family. I have four siblings and we all still get together for Easter and Christmas and most generally everyone comes. This includes the five of us and our kids and grandkids. It is a big effort to accomplish these events but so necessary.
