It was crowded and a wee bit crazy last year.
It was incredibly crowded and bordering on insanity this year. The parents even booed at the volunteers when one of the egg hunts didn't start on time.
Yes, you read that right. Volunteers at a child's Easter egg hunt were booed.
Happy Easter to one and all. And a bah humbug!
I learned my lesson from last year and took it all in stride. It is one of the downfalls, I believe, of living in such a highly populated area. We have so many great activities to choose from, which is wonderful, but there are hundreds of other parents choosing those same activities, too, which is not so wonderful.
I'm linking up today with Project Alicia. She is hosting a six-week link up series aimed at capturing the beauty of spring. This week's prompt was Easter/Eggs.
My intention in joining this linkup was to improve my photography. But then I saw the craziness of the day and decided my nice DSLR camera would stay safely in its bag. Really, I had my hands full
It also could not possibly have been any sunnier and it was high noon. This does not make for good pictures.
Ah, well. When it comes down to it, I believe the best photos are those which capture memories, regardless of quality.
Look out behind you, it's the Mongolian Hoards! Disguised as two year olds. Very clever, Hoard.

They had all kinds of animals there. P wasn't sure what to think of the lizard at first, but after I pet it a bit, she gave it a go.
Our backyard Easter Egg Hunt. P decided to fill an egg with dirt for mama. So... sweet. It's always the thought that counts. I'm not sure what the thought was behind the dirt, but sweet, nonetheless.
There's my little Livie! She slept through the egg hunt, woke to eat, then went back to sleep. She did later approve of her bunny from her Easter basket.
