Squealing in the back yard

The neighbors behind me have a gathering of children rushing around their back yard searching for eggs. From my bedroom window I could see the parents outside with flashlights walking around the yard. At one time I saw someone stand on the back deck tossing the eggs around. Now there are squeals of delight and laughter coming from the yard with random "I found one Mommy!" or "I found one Daddy!". I have always said that the best sound in the world is that of a laughing child and I still believe it to be true.

It is sweet to hear their excitement. I have fond memories of my own boys at that age with egg hunts.

It really is. I prefer that over the sound of yelling that normally comes from that house.

I think they were putting the eggs in the yard while the kids were asleep.
