    Easter egg hunts are a fun thing to do with your children. I like that there are several to choose from, and they are located at varied location so people can take their kids to one and not have it be too far away. :)

    I'm sorry - but "bigslim" - couldn't you be happy for just one celebration/egg hunt? What exactly are you teaching/modeling for your family, with a comment like that.

    Yep, one could spend all day doing Easter Egg Hunts if they all weren't at 1p.m. Pretty easy to understand why this is so. I am glad they are all at the same time. Easter isn't about Egg Hunts really! It is a good way to entertain the kids for an hour or two.
