Easter Egg Hunt

This is my 101st post on this particular blog. Yay, I suppose.

Today we went to the Annual Rocklin California Easter Egg Hunt. It's put on by the firemen of the city and they dye thousands and thousands of eggs. The hunt always starts at 1pm on Easter Sunday at a city park. It ends about 1:02pm on Easter Sunday. Man, these kids just decimate the area. These are real eggs, boiled and dyed and a few of them are marked and if a kid is lucky enough to get a marked egg, they take it to a table and get a prize. Sometimes it's a gigantic basket, sometimes it's a nickel and sometimes it's just a toy. Here is the entire egg hunt with Bubba - listen to the parents yelling at their kids (FAR OUT THERE IN THE FIELD!). I don't talk until the words, "Wow Buddy, you got a whole basket full." (OMG, he has a monkey easter basket - it's just the cutest fucking thing in the entire world.) The entire video is less than 2 minutes. Prissy was at a different field for older kids, so I didn't get video of her hunt. Bubba ended up getting a Black-evil Spiderman which he was NOT excited about (ungrateful little bastard) but he played with it for almost an hour.

Wow! So cool that you study Taekwondo, and have time to be a Mom. Must be hard. I'm kinda similar, except I'm a Dad, and also working my way toward black belt. Check out my blog here:
