Last February I received an email from my alumni association letting me know that they would be hosting a brunch and egg hunt for alumni and their families. I unfortunately looked at the email, completely forgot about it for a couple of weeks, and then missed out on purchasing tickets for the event. Not this year! As soon as that email arrived in my inbox, those tickets were mine!
We have been looking forward to the egg hunt since then. Little Boy has been talking non-stop about going on an egg hunt -- which I attribute to his love for the Curious George Easter book...books for the win! There were plenty of activities for the children to do while waiting for the food to arrive at brunch, and while waiting for everyone to finish eating and the egg hunt to begin. Little Boy badly wanted a dinosaur balloon from the Balloon Guy, but was not very interested in the face paint or the crafts. I was able to get him to sit down an colour a bunny picture to eat up more time before we were told the egg hunt was about to start.
The rules were to stay in the perimeter indicated by the ribbons, and that you could only put five eggs in your basket -- once there were five, you could help other people find eggs. It didn't take us too long to find the eggs, so we wandered around the area and played in the icy puddles. It was a lot of fun watching him wander around and get excited whenever he found an egg. I will definitely be watching my in box closely again next February.
