DSA Easter Egg Hunt

The Down Syndrome Alliance of the Midlands G.R.A.N.D.S group (Grandparents respecting and nurturing Down Syndrome) put on one heck of an Easter Egg Hunt a few weeks ago.  This was the inaugural they are already making plans on how to make next years better.  I've gotta say though, this year will most certainly be hard to top...billions of eggs, tons of families, over a hundred smiling faces and BEAUTIFUL weather!  How could you go wrong?
Next years got some big shoes to fill  :-)
Macy has ARRIVED and ready to get this hunt started!!  :-)

"Gramps...just OPEN it!  trust's not know you wanna"
Sweet Wesley hunting with his Daddy.
uh oh...Owen, better watch out...swiper Macy's on the prowl.
"can you hear it in there?"
Macy an Owen spot the golden egg & race for it.  "back off Lady"  HA!
Kenzie's is full and so were ALL the other baskets of ALL the other kids.  SUCCESS!
uh oh...Macy's back to her old tricks again.  SWIPER, no SWIPING!
