We, with a bit of trepidation, made our way to our city’s annual Easter egg (mostly candy) hunt. So did everyone else. My husband went off with my older girls. I helped Mase and Dax.
The toddler area was at least five people deep, around a small square of candy filled grass. We were in the middle of the crowd when the sirens went off. The people in front thought it would be an excellent idea to pick up candy exactly where the were standing. It’s possible I might have unintentionally injured someone as the masses pushed forward. Luckily, no ambulances were called.
It was all worth it in the end–Dax was in lollipop bliss!
After the hunt, my kids wanted to see the Easter Bunny, but he was swarmed and a little scary looking. Instead, we settled for a visit to a lonely Easter dragon. I thought he was adorable! My children were also thrilled, as you can see.
Our family hunt was much less crowded, just us. After my previous chocolate overload and my children’s Saturday sugar rush I went a healthier route and filled the plastic eggs with cereal and graham cracker bunnies. And, I was very proud of my budget conscious self. I recycled some of last year’s Easter themed gifts. I didn’t think anyone would notice.
Dani: “Hey, we got the same wind-up bunny last year.”
Me: “Really? The Easter Bunny must really like those.”
Dani: “It’s not working. The wind-up bunny we got last year didn’t work either.”
Me: “Whoa. What are the chances of that?”
I think they’re on to me.
