    Lynn’s Notes:
    Eldon Park was just down the lane from our house in Lynn Lake. It was a small space; room enough for a roundabout, a slide, and a three-seater swing set. The Kinsmen took care of the grounds and the equipment, and thanks to them, we had an Easter egg hunt each year. It was always a skirmish when the big kids got to the goodies first. Some parents helped the little kids, much to the annoyance of others, but we always managed to escape an altercation. I remember Katie standing by the fence upset because she couldn’t find anything. To me, the eggs were visible everywhere, but when I squatted down to her level, I could see what the problem was. Everything was either too high or buried in the grass, which was too tall for her to see over. Sometimes, you really DO have to look at things from your child’s point of view!

    That’s all right, Ellie will save the day. Funny how eggs are
    symbolic of new beginnings, isn’t it? Appropriate, for
    the time of resurrection.

    I appreciate the way our church does egg hunts. First off, it’s indoors (we ARE in New England). The 3 and under kids get to search in the Children’s Church room. The 4-7 year olds get the main sanctuary and main hall (with a few other rooms). The 7-12 year olds get the third floor. This gives every age group a chance to find SOME eggs.

    Most people live life like that, Lizzie.

    I always loved the egg hunt, it was so much fun to find the eggs but once I grew up it was even more fun to hide them. I remember when I was maybe 8 or 9 we had a family reunion on Easter sunday and they were going to do an egg hunt, all the moms decided to wrap the eggs in foil rather than color them, that way they would stay clean, only problem was the sun came out and all the eggs were visible like diamonds in the grass, lol…….no eggs were forgotten that year.
    Happy Easter to all.

    They would put some eggs out in plain site and told the older kids not to get them, then they would take the little ones by the hand and walk them right to them.

    I can appreciate logic and intelligence. Kudos to them that decided this means. Very equitable.

    I recently read on the Internet where some towns ruled that you couldn’t bill an egg hunt as an EASTER egg hunt because the holiday “doesn’t include other faiths”. Goes to show how political correctness has gotten out of control and needs to be abolished, and I mean RIGHT NOW!

    What’s next, outlawing Passover (my holiday) for the same reason?

    Our government needs to be reminded that the Constitution guarantees us freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM it.

    Naw Lizzie just wants someone to find the eggs for her. When my daughter was that age we knew something was up so to Pediatrican eye doctor with her. My parents never took us on Easter egg hunt. Hubby and I had our kids on egg hunt.
