Our family tradition on Easter is to gather at Mom's house after church, enjoy a huge family dinner, and then the Easter egg hunt. Sounds like a lot of families on Easter I guess. But there is one thing that is different about our egg hunt. It's almost all adults. My parents had seven children. You'd think there would be lots of grandchildren, and by now even some great grandchildren. My son is the oldest grandchild, he's 33 and never married. My sister's oldest is 21 and still in college. My brother's girl is 25 and also never married, and our youngest is 11. Even though we're short on children, we've never missed an egg hunt, and it has got to be the liveliest egg hunt in Knoxville. There is some cheating. This year one of my sisters brought some extra eggs but didn't tell anyone. She was looking like an easy winner for the first hunt until someone started counting the eggs. There is always so much enthusium on these hunts you'd think there was a $100. prize for every egg found.
