Last night, there was a posting due to inclement weather the Middleton Egg hunt may have to be canceled. We will watch the weather and make an announcement by 8:30am. The storm raged all till well after I went to sleep. I was not too hopeful that the Hunt would be happening. I checked this morning, and it was ON! Lon was thrilled. We were on our way about 9:30am, I thought the hunt started at 10:00. The egg hunt for Lon's age group started at 11:20. We had lots of time to explore Middleton.
Yes, the basket is from my wedding (mark's too!)
Since I only use them now at Easter, they have kept remarkably well!
Not sure that this was handled as well as it could have been. The 8-10 year olds went last, each age group had their own section. This was good. However, since the bigger kids went last, the younger kids also joined in, with their parents helping them find the eggs. Also there should be a better way to check on the ceramic special eggs. There was one child who collected three of them. This was against the rules. (one per child) It should have only been for the 8 to 10 year olds and once you found a ceramic egg, you would be done hunting eggs. Lon had fun anyway.
The eggs were boiled up last week, so we probably are going to use them for fertilizer.
Mark was good and did not have dessert, tomorrow he will have 2 !
It was a good rainy day!
