"Eggs"elent Week!

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”

~ Dr. Seuss  

   What a great week!  The sun came back and the light shined on Chestnut Hill!  We started off with 400 filled easter eggs at the nearby playground.  My friends son filled in for my youngest as Peter Rabbit.  The kids were so excited.  We seperated the kids into two groups since there were over 200 kids.   The little ones (4 and under) went first and were very methodic in apporaching each egg.  There motto seemed to me to be slow and steady ensures the egg.   The impatient older kids (5+) and parents eagerly awaited the there chance to pounce the larger section of the playground.  The count begain 10, 9 , 8,   oh well that’s as far as we got.  The Hunt for the older kids over… in less than a minute.  Complimentary consolations of Bakers Street Cookies awaited the eggless.  It was a great day for all!

My new friend and artistic talent Becky Leatherman Adams captured the day in this photo album             

Becky your the best!      Thanks look forward to more of the Good News!

  1. I love this post Fran : ) And not just because you called me your new friend : )

  2. Fran! What a joy it is to meet you; any friend of Becky’s is a friend of mine. She is da bomb diggity, isn’t she? I call her “Beck-tastic”… and am so glad to be able to call her “friend”. Her photography ALWAYS makes me smile, and I LOVE the pictures she did of the Easter Egg hunt at O’Doodles. And I love THIS post, too. My goodness; my boy is 11 and hasn’t been to an Easter egg hunt in a couple of years, but you just brought it all back to me in a rush. At his first one (he was barely walking), we video-taped it, and all you can hear is me, in the background, saying “Pick up the egg, Adam. Pick it UP. PICK UP THE EGG!!!!” Poor little man; all he wanted to do was admire it on the ground. By the time he was in elementary school, it was just like you said; a mad rush and over in a minute. It’s wonderful that you opened your store for these precious children; you gave them memories that will last a lifetime. AND you discovered one of the best photographers in the world!
