Sixteen month old Alyssa enjoyed her very first egg hunt at the Vertical Church "E3" Easter Egg Extravanganza on Saturday morning in Kendrick Park. The 2-year old and under group were the first hunters, at 10:30 am, to seek out their eggs - and fill their baskets they did. The 3-5, 6-8 and 9-19 year old groups followed at 30-minute intervals during which time the "hunting field" was replenished with over 5000 eggs per session. The weather was beautiful, every BYOB (bring your own basket) was filled and every face contained a smile.

You could even get your face painted
You had to open each egg as some had tickets inside you could trade for a gift from those on the stage
Got a monkey on your back? this young one does.
There were also games like tossing a stuffed animal into the holes in this cut out
Or you could try your hand at shooting a duck off the shelf
Or you could just hang out with the Easter Bunny
Remember the bowl of tootsie rolls? Well there were 1827 and Carol Cheeney guessed 1823 to win not only the jar and tootsie rolls but $50 from "Just Computers"
How about those recycle bins? Perhaps to be stored away until this time next year.
If you weren't into egg gathering you could shoot hoops elsewhere in the park - it was a beautiful day for most anything
