Hippity-Hop Easter Egg Hunt

Happy Easter! Yesterday I took the boys to the Hippity-Hop Easter Egg Hunt down in Shorewood. It's at a retirement community, and they have all kinds of things for the kids to do. It was quite crowded, but the Easter Bunny himself came by to see the boys while they waited in line to get in.

Now, the egg hunt itself was a bit crazy. It actually reminded me of the start of the Hunger Games. As they waited for the hunt to start, the kids were sizing one another up and figuring out their strategy. When "Go!" was shouted, chaos reined for about a minute and a half, at which point all the eggs were gone.

Besides the, er, extra-competitive egg hunt, there was also a caricature artist. Nick was especially interested in his special pens and markers.

What do you think? Does it look like them?

There were also balloons and a wagon ride. . .

. . . with real horses.

But the highlight of the event was, of course, a visit with the Easter Bunny. The gentleman and lady next to the bunny himself were voted the Easter King and Queen. They handed out yummy suckers to the boys after their turn on the fuzzy lap.

More about our Easter (and our Spring Break, too!) later this week.
