First Easter Egg Hunt March 27, 2010

The City of Villa Rica had the annual Easter Egg Hunt this past Saturday. This is the first time we have gone to the Easter event although we have been to several other activities that the city has put on such as the Candy Cane hunt around Christmas time. Of course back in December the number of people that turned out for the candy cane event was so minimal compared to the turnout on Saturday probably due to the weather. When we walked up I was blown away by the amount of people already lined up around the egg covered football field. Gracie and Maya were in separate areas so my parents took Grace to her age group and my brother, sister-in-law and I helped Maya. Once they could finally start collecting eggs it was pure chaos. There were so many people that little ones like Miss Maya didn't even have time to bend over and pick up the eggs. This is when the protective Mama starts grabbing them for her and so did her big, strong Uncle! Parents were literally knocking other people's kids over. I swear the whole thing was over in less than 5 minutes. Thanks to her Mama.... Maya got a prize egg and ended up with a yummy chocolate bunny that she shared with her big sister. They did have some other fun activities that the kids enjoyed such as jump/slide things and a cute train. Luckily our neighborhood is doing an egg hunt this upcoming Friday and we plan on doing our own in our yard on Easter so hopefully those will be much calmer and the girls will get plenty of candy!
