Our first Easter Egg hunt

This was the first year we've attempted a community Easter Egg hunt. We almost passed on it (I'm kinda tired, ya know), but the weather was so beautiful and I wanted to do something fun with the girls, so we chose the smaller of the two hunts in our community. Good thing, too! Smaller still meant hundreds of kids! The Village of South Elgin had A Zoo to You (a traveling petting zoo), a live DJ, the local police with their DARE car, and of course, the egg hunt. The Easter Bunny was also there, but after standing in line for 10 minutes, Abbi informed me that she met him last year, so a visit with him this year was unnecessary.

The girls seemed to have fun and were sufficiently buzzed on chocolate for the remainder of the day. And we got to enjoy the nice April day outside. Here are my favorite pictures from the day (posted in reverse...sorry!).

Looking for eggs...

Lexi was cranky in the time leading up to the hunt, but she found something to occupy herself.

Abbi, showing surprising patience...

Waiting for the hunt to start!

Meeting the animals...very up close and personal.
