Each year, the City of Palm Coast has an Easter Egg Hunt. They call it the EGGstravaganza. It is pretty much packed with people. We got there early to get good parking and Taft found some friends from his Preschool to play with. Aren't they cute?
He also is at the age where he is not very good at following modeling advice. He will smile but not look at me, or look at me and not smile. I am sure that it is just a stage...
He enjoyed the hunt. The city marks off an area and dumps out the eggs. This year, they decided that they would take 50-75 kids at a time, with no parents, and run them through. I got Taft in the first group and Shane stayed at the starting gate while I went to the exit. We wanted to make sure that we could find him. It went okay but I was not a real fan. I am sure that there is a better way but you can't make everyone happy.
He got enough eggs. There is no art in finding them since it is just a flat field of grass. Basically - you just run and pick up as many as you can get. He was very serious about seeing what was inside them though.
After the hunt was over, we got in line to see the Easter Bunny. He was very excited. He and I were talking about seeing the bunny before we left home. He told me that he was going to take his Bunny and tell the Easter Bunny thank you for giving him to him (his first Easter). He also said that he was going to tell him that he wants a new spin toothbrush in is basket tomorrow.
Here he is with the Bunny:
And here is the Easter Bunny giving him a thumbs up when he told him thank you for Bunny:
And he had to get in a hug and kiss before he left. He wanted to make sure that he got his $5 worth.
Afterwards, we got some lunch at Woody's, Taft came home and rested with Shane, and I went off to Wal*Mart and Kohl's. Such a nice day.
