Easter 2012, Easter Eggstravaganza

During the Easter weekend, we participated in our local Easter festivities called “Easter Eggstravaganza”, which was sponsored by the local churches. We came for the Easter Egg Hunt.

For the Easter Egg Hunt, there was a different time slot of each age group. While waiting for their time slots. Matthew and Mark explored the area separately. I followed Matthew around to do the blow-up playthings, crafts, etc. Hubby followed Mark around. Mark’s interest were the slides in the playground, the monkey bars, the weeds and the sand.

When Mark’s age group of the Egg Hunt started, we came in a little bit too late. There wasn’t any more eggs to find. So Mark and I was just roaming around the area with an empty basket. Mark seems like he was looking for eggs, but he really wasn’t! He was more interested in exploring this area that was designated for the egg hunt, which has more play things to try. One of the moms who was there took pity on us that we have an empty basket, that I really didn’t mind. But she insisted to share with us her daughter’s eggs. Her 3-year old daughter didn’t seem to mind. So Mark and I ended up with about 4 donated eggs at the end of the hunt. It was fun!

On Matthew’s turn for egg hunting, I was with Matthew, while hubby was with Mark continuing his exploration on the other side of the area. While Mark’s egg hunting was quite relaxed, Matthew’s turn with all the other 4 to 6 year-olds was a different matter. There were more of them, and they are all so anxious and excited. This made me nervous. While waiting for the “Go!”, I repeatedly told Matthew to not push, not bump into anyone, and if somebody else got the egg he’s eyeing at, just move on to the next one. I was praying neither Matthew nor I will get into a fight over an Easter egg, as I was feeling that the other parents were anxious and antsy, too. I can only speak for myself, that I was only there to follow Matthew around for picture taking. Some of the other parents, however, while waiting for the egg hunt to start, were already pushing their kids to be the front of the line, pushing aside the other kids who were there first. It’s so unnerving to watch! Thankfully, the egg hunt proceeded with no incidents. Matthew ran, climbed, crawled, digged,… to find some eggs! He got 5 eggs he wasn’t so happy with. He wanted to find more eggs, but there just wasn’t anymore eggs to find. I encouraged him anyway to just keep looking, until he dropped his basket, dropping his eggs. We both panicked as a few kids ran towards us. Matthew was so quick to pick them all back! Sigh of relief! Just then, he decided, 5 eggs total, the hunt was over! In the end I thought, there simply was more kids than Easter eggs to go around.
