Easter 2013: Outdoor egg hunt

The Easter tradition in my family is to go to my grandma's house, eat lunch with the aunts/uncles/cousins, then go on the Easter egg hunt.  My grandma lives on about 7 acres of land near a creek, and the Easter bunny normally hides plastic eggs around outside - filled with some sort of treat.

All of the cousins are ages 16+ now, but one of my cousins has a young son -- so the Easter egg hunt continues!

My younger brother was not on spring break last week (he had it the week before), so he wasn't able to be at grandma's on Easter.  Hence, here are some pictures so he (and you) can have a mini-hunt yourself:

The metallic eggs were harder to spot... do you see it?

The Easter bunny left no tracks in the snow, so when we were in the woods you had to look closely in all directions, and all around the tree trunks:

And here we are gathering eggs in our baskets:

And then it was back to the house to open and count the eggs.  This is the type of treat that we normally find inside the eggs:


In previous years there have been eggs with a dime or quarter inside, as well.


Strangest thing found in an egg this year:


Can you tell what it is?
