Jason, Kendra, Kinsen, Jaybin, Stephanie and Daniel came to Kokomo on the Saturday before Easter to celebrate Easter with Stephen and I. We had a wonderful time. Grandma (that's me) organized all kinds of "egg" games. We played Capture the Egg (like capture the flag, only with eggs), Egg Roll with your nose, Egg toss game, and "the Great Egg Drop". We had an easter egg hunt and ate Egg salad sandwiches, devilled eggs, decorated egg sugar cookies...

We spent at least 3 hours playing "the Great Egg Drop". This game is played by placing all kinds of things (like duct tape, cotton balls, baby diapers, yarn, tissue paper, small boxes, toilet paper tubes, cool whip containers -- actually anything I could find around the house that would help keep an egg from breaking while being dropped from the top of the ladder).

Jaybin and Jason's Egg drop team was the only team that did not break any eggs - the rest of us broke an egg when we dropped it from the top of the ladder. We had no idea that Jason was an engineer, but he really came up with grand engineering ideas on how to NOT break an egg! Kendra and Kinsen were always the first ones ready to drop their egg and had to wait for the rest of us. We made a bullseye that gave more points the farther from the ladder you dropped your egg. Jason/Jaybin were ahead of all of us until the very last drop. Kinsen threw her last egg in desperation of needing points and her invention landed on the X - which gave them 300points! They won! Little brother, Jaybin, was very disappointed and argued that he should get a prize because he didn't break any eggs.
