Easter Egg Hunt ~ Bonnets Required

Even if I do say so myself, we live in a wonderful neighborhood.  With the approach of Easter the "Librarians" sent out e-mails to all the residents on their list asking all who wish to participate in this years annual Easter egg hunt to please follow a few simple rules.

1.  Everyone please meet in the "Librarians" yard promptly at 10:00 for mimosas and treats.
2.  Pink and Blue eggs are for three year and under children.
3.  Dogs leashed and on sidewalks only.
4.  Everyone move from yard to yard as a group.
5.  Please wear an Easter Bonnet.

Rule one? Well done! Personally I believe if you offer them mimosas, they will not doddle.  So that one was an easy one.

Rule two? Someone who knows who they are did not read their e-mail and created a bit of a kerfuffle when it was explained to all, that the yellow eggs were for the three and under's.

Rule three?  Well done, but someone please explain to me why we have to bring our dogs to such an event?  They don't carry baskets and hunt for eggs, they sniff each other's butts and pee on things.

Rule four? Very well done!!

Rule five???? As MeMa said, "Well not many of you read your e-mail, did you?"

Mimosa's anyone?
10:00 It's time to gather

Nary a child went home empty handed

Taeya, pretty in pink as always

Time to play while MeMa prepared the table for a big Easter ham dinner
While the children play.....ahem! Look at you,  stealing the goods from the baskets.
After a big meal MeMa surprised everyone with this delicious cake


  1. Wunnerful, wunnerful, wunnerful. Children always are priceless; these perhaps beyond. It must have been a perfect day there; it was here, too.

  2. Looks like a great day in a lovely neighbourhood.

  3. What a grand day! Some people probably didn't even know what an Easter Bonnet was.
    Wonderful pictures, Doc. Thanks for sharing your day with us. ♥

  4. In the 'crowd' picture, I noticed 2 dogs, and not a single hat! You can lead a horse to water.....
