Looking inside of them and realizing that they were empty. Yes, they turned in the empty eggs for prizes. No candy at this hunt! The parents were very happy. They got bubbles, milk, and stickers. When Micah realized that they had to turn the eggs in he WEPT! I mean really cried. It was so sad. We tried to convince him that the prizes were worth it, but he couldn't be bothered. He wanted to keep all of those beautiful kelly green eggs that he had worked so hard to collect. Our son is a goofy goofy kid. Matt said, "Hey, he knows what he likes!" Sounds like someone else I know...
Then the very next week Matt's parents and his brother Peter came for a visit. Matt's mom was able to come to Miami for a work conference and the boys went scuba diving and snorkeling. Matt even took a couple of days off of work to go down to Miami with them and get in on the action. They chartered a boat and went out to several dives. While Matt's dad and Pete were under water Matt floated around on top looking at the fish below him. They were in the Keys by the way. Matt called me Thursday night pretty freaked out because when he had been snorkeling that day he looked up and saw a shadow in the water about 50-70 feet away from him. He said within 2 seconds an 8 foot reef shark went swimming underneath him! He said he hasn't been that terrified since he went skydiving before we got married! I was just glad that he was safe. Anyway they all came back to our house that Friday and stayed with us until Wednesday. We had sooooo much fun and Micah really warmed up to them fast. He kept getting Pete and Matt confused though which was very funny.
