We woke up early this morning so that we could take the kids to the Easter egg hunt. It was organized by age -- our goal was to get there by 9:30 for the 2 year old hunt. We got there late, so I let J do the three year old hunt and that was funny because he was clearly younger than everyone. He had fun though, and managed to pick up about 10 eggs and 3 suckers, and a little toy deer -- which he was super excited about.
It was fun trying to get him to run and get the eggs. He was kind of slower than the rest of the kids -- but he had a blast. I was a little shocked that after about 5 times of the announcer reminding parents that the hunt was for the kids and parents were to only participate by taking pictures, etc -- there were SO many parents that sacrificed their integrity for $1 worth of plastic eggs and candy. Really they just made it less fun for everyone and I thought it was rude. Anyway, mini rant over. I think from now on though, I will stick to egg hunts in our own backyard in the years to come.
Then the four year old hunt was at 10:30 and E got to participate in that one with her dad. She got a ton of candy and eggs too. They both had a lot of fun. We got to see a clown on stilts and they thought that was too cool. We stopped and talked with one of the police officers as we were leaving -- he was on a motorcycle and he turned on the lights for J to see. J is already really into motorcycles and cars and it was one of the highlights of his time out today. We had a good day. Plans for this afternoon, relax and recover.
