Easter Egg Hunt... I mean stampede!

So the park behind our neighborhood had been advertising an Easter egg hunt for a while - and since Corey will be out of town on Easter this year (yes - he's working the Masters again) we decided to take Harrison to the park so dad could do an early Easter activity with Harrison this year! Well the sign said that it started at 11am sharp - so we go there around 10:45 - and the place was already PACKED! I was glad to see that they had ropes defining the different age groups - but to be honest - I had a feeling that once they let the kids go the ropes would mean NOTHING. Anyway - we went over to our area - and waited for what seemed like FOREVER!While we waited we got a couple pictures of Harrison - and there was one run away kid... it was pretty funny!! So eventually they let the kids go... and it was SERIOUSLY like a giant stampede!!! Within second there were kids everywhere! Our little group was adorable - they were the tots - 3yrs - and they were so cute - just walking around picking up eggs putting them in their baskets... and they out of nowhere the big kids attacked!!!! I'm not kidding these 10 and 12 year old came running into our area and stealing the eggs right out from under our little ones!!! You know what - the jokes on them though - because when we left we opened the eggs that Harrison got... and all they had in them was Tootsie Rolls and caramel squares!!! The big kids eggs had Snickers and Twix.... HAHA - SHOULD HAVE STAYED IN YOUR OWN AREA MORONS!!!!! (Oops - that sounded really mean didn't it... oh well!!) Enjoy the pictures!

The BEFORE: Giant field - tons of people waiting patiently...

Ok... so they said go... and check out this dad... I think he went at a FULL sprint!!! HAHA

Here it is... the stampede!

Please notice that I forgot to bring a basket for Harrison... so he's using a scented poop bag to pick up eggs!!! HAHA - I'm the WORST mom ever!
More egg hunting....
The AFTER... it was a mad house! We were out of there in under 30 minutes!

Hello my fellow blog stalker! I love that post. What better to pickup easter eggs than a top of the line scented poop bag? I mean I think there's a new trend somewhere in there. Hope you guys are doing good!

You can pick up Easter eggs and keep the environment clean all at the same time! :)
