Happy Easter everyone. Today I have a two part photo story for you! Which is crazy because I never do these! But never the less today I am doing a photo story. So let us begin….
It was a sunny morning no different than any other morning that week, except it was Easter! The girls had just eaten their breakfast and were excitedly getting ready for their annual Easter egg hunt. But suddenly there was a knock at the door. Jordan went to answer, but found only a note.
“Hey you should come look at this.” Jordan said turning the smooth pink paper over in her hand.
The note read:
Today in the park. Two Teams. Blue and Pink.
“Wow! Let’s try and find out who sent it,” said Robin, who is a avid reader of Nancy Drew and other mystery novels.
“Totally it could be fun!” exclaimed adventurous Hazel.
“Uh, I don’t know girls. We should just stay and do our egg hunt here,” Bella said quietly.
Jordan, who was sort of the unspoken leader of the group announced: “come on Bella, we’ll go check it out. You can be on my team, Team Pink. And Robin and Hazel will be Team Blue.” Bella smiled.
“Well I guess it could be okay,” she said, but was still unsure.
So the girls walked to the park excitedly chattering about what awaited them.
The girls found another note that read:
Welcome to the Easter egg hunt. Follow the clues and find the eggs then get back to the finish line again.
“Oooo sounds fun,” said Robin happily.
So each team raced to their first clues. The pink team clue said: Don’t leave me hanging, it’s not my fault I’m taller than you.
“Hmmmm, Oh oh I’ve got it! The big ever green tree over by the pond!” Bella shouted.
“Oh I get it, don’t leave me hanging, because the ever green tree has no leaves!” Jordan answered.
Hazel and Robin picked up their clue and Hazel read aloud what it said: I rhyme with fond and I’m deep and wide.
“Oh that’s easy, it’s the pond!” Robin laughed and the girls rushed off.
Jordan and Bella arrived at their first destination, the ever green tree. They circled it and looked around and eventually found a light pink egg and a note that said: Birds flock to my plentiful branches.
“The bird feeders!”
The girls put the egg in their basket and ran off. When they got to the tree they looked up into its thick branches and saw the egg resting in one of the bird feeders way up in the tree.
“I’ll climb up and get it,” Jordan volunteered.
Hurry to the finish line. The note told them so Jordan and Bella stated sprinting back to the finish line.
“We’re going to win,” Bella giggled excitedly. Jordan nodded her head and the girls kept running.
Meanwhile the blue team was over by the pond and Robin collected the egg and Hazel read the note: You can find me in lakes, gardens, and on the road, but I’m the biggest and hardest of them all.
“Oh this is a hard one….”
“Umm…” the girls searched their minds, then suddenly they both exclaimed at the same time:”The big rock.”
So the girls ran off to their next egg’s location.
It didn’t take long for them to get there and Hazel climbed upon the rock’s flat face and reached down to grab the note. Hurry back to the finish line.
The two girls hurried off, but at the same time team pink was also on their way.
The two teams were so close, but team pink was trailing slightly. Both teams wanted to win, they could see the prize ahead. Then suddenly….
The end. For now…. 😀
Who will win? You’ll just have to wait and see. 🙂 I’ll post the second part soon.
