Welcome back! Did you get a snack? Let the dog out?
Saturday morning, the Gettysburg Family trekked out to the egg hunt at the Gettysburg Battlefield Harley-Davidson dealership. In addition to the eggs, they also had appearances by the Easter Bunny, Elmo and Big Bird. The wait for a photo with Elmo or Big Bird was like an hour. As a result? Here's a picture of the girls with the Easter Bunny.
It was a full on mob scene. If I was a guessing type of girl, I'd guess there were 1,000+ kids there.
We won't talk about all the greedy adults scooping up eggs for their toddlers. I will say I felt a little dirty and depressed about humanity after wards. Atlee held the bag for her, but otherwise Greeley collected all of her eggs herself. All eight or so.
Then it was Atlee's turn. She's the pink spot in the middle there.
She gathered quite a few.
No pictures of Shea, but he did it too. He gathered quite a few and then accidentally tipped his bag- causing his eggs to fall out. Another kid swooped in and took all of his eggs. Another example of greed. Another reason I felt all icky and disgruntled with people.
Where was I? Oh. Rich helped the girls sort their eggs.
Leaving behind the irksomeness of the egg hunt, my dad helped Rich put together the swing set Amy gave us. They moved last fall to a house with a smaller yard and passed along their awesome swing set to us. The girls love it.
Here's Grandpa surveying his handiwork.
And that brings us up to Saturday night when I got the Easter baskets together. Er, when the bunny came by. Oh, whatever. My kids know the truth. When we were planning on going to see the Easter Bunny up there, Atlee mentioned it was just going to be some guy in a suit.
This concludes the second part of our Easter miniseries. Please join us again tomorrow!
