Easter Egg Hunt

We woke up this morning to a covering of snow! This is no reason to cancel Easter Egg hunts though! We were planning on going to Evan's school, which is two blocks from our house, for their Easter Egg Hunt. It is put on by the local township, so it is a very small town event.
We weren't sure what to expect, but there were about 30 children there. In Alec's age bracket, 0-3 yr. olds, there were only two! They brought in hay bales on a pick-up truck, threw the hay bales on the ground and threw the eggs into the hay bales. Each age bracket had their own hay pile to look through.
Ann-Marie was in the 3-4 yr. old group. She said her hands were FREEZING!
Evan was in the 7-10 yr. old group. This was the most active group, yet they were still low-key.
And afterwards, everyone enjoyed doughnuts and candy. Alec double-fisted the treats, of course.

I'm glad you still went...a little snow keeps all the fair weathered fans away and more eggs for you hard core egg hunters! I remember doing that as a kid at our towns summer fair...except it was coins in the hay piles..LOVED IT!!
