Easter is a time for a bunny to hid eggs… well, at least the parents hind them! And if you’re anything like our family, we hide the plastic ones because we usually forget where they are all hidden and plastic ones don’t stink as bad as forgotten real eggs. And for the children, this holiday is a time to eat their weight in candy that was hidden in these little plastic bundles of joy. (Have you ever noticed that Easter is almost exactly 6 month after Halloween and we get candy loaded holidays every 6 months?!) And of course I haven’t forgotten the REAL reason for the season… the resurrection of Jesus!
Well, I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am looking forward to watching my kids running around like crazy looking for those brightly colored Easter eggs. In Ellensburg, we have a TON of amazing Easter egg hunts to keep the kids busy all weekend. This list is from the Ellensburg Daily Record.
