Super Early Easter Egg Hunt

Last night we went for our first Easter Egg Hunt this year.  It was sponsored by the City of Abilene, and this was the second time we were attending it. ( I guess I always wasn't vigilant enough to catch it in other years past )

It was scheduled to start at 7 pm, the same time as last year, but we had a sneaky suspicion someone had forgotten to figure in the fact that we hadn't sprung forward as yet, because it was quite DARK by the time we got there.

Thank goodness part of the field was lit up with lights from the building, but part of it was definitely darker than I'm sure a lot of parents would have liked.

The organizers, probably getting a little anxious that it was getting darker and darker by the second, decided to start the egg hunt a few minutes early, but it was all over in less than 5 minutes.

Even though there were supposedly more than 8000 eggs on the field, when you have hundreds of eager children all revved up for candy, they are like the most efficient vacuum cleaner ever envisioned.

Seriously, no kidding - it seemed like every single egg had been sucked up after only 4 or 5 minutes.

"Wait Mommy, I'm not ready!"

The little boy was pretty excited, and I'm glad he had a good time, although he was a little disappointed there weren't any other hunts right away. Just wait another week or so, little man :)
