After the Bunny pictures I had to hurry home so that I could go help stuff plastic Easter eggs for the little community egg hunt on Saturday. I'd never been to the egg hunt before. When the kids were smaller we always had softball on Saturdays and I always host Easter at my house so I'm crazy busy getting ready for that. BUT I've been talking to a lot more people lately and someone asked me to come help, and you know, if someone asks you should probably go right?
So I made a bit of time to go down and help. This is the kitchen area of the clubhouse. This where they have some dinners and bingo every week along with a lot of other things. When I got there there was one table of ladies working on the eggs and by the time we were done there were at least 4 tables going. We started with the new eggs and then they brought in this big box of "used" eggs that we stuffed until we ran out of candy.
It was fun just sitting around and chatting. When we were done I ended up staying there for a few hours just talking more and Scott came down to meet me in the bar too. (the blue door in the top picture opens into the bar) My mom had my kids come over for a sleepover at her cabin with the other kids so we had a carefree kidfree night. Not that they are much work anyways now.
The next morning I got up and did a bunch of work in the yard until it was time to go down to the camp ground and help out. I got there a little late and they had already put all the eggs out so I didn't really help that day. My mom brought Robert and Adrian down and Trevor rode his bike over (they had an older kids hunt) and Melissa got volunteered to help put little bunny tattoos on the kids.
They had hot dogs for the kids (this is my goofy friend Bev) and after the kids got them they opened it up to the adults and there was still some left over when we left.
After all that I went home and worked on the yard a bit. I knew it was probably going to rain for Easter but still wanted the yard cleaned up "just in case". My friend Lupe kept bugging me to come have "one beer" with her down at the corner store so after I was done with most of my cleaning up I ran down there to get my mile in.
Then somehow we ended up out in the boonies (that's what they call the area between the club and the river here) hanging out around a big bonfire.
Scott rode his mountain bike out there and met us out there lol. Good thing I had decided I was "done" cleaning for the night.Pin It
LOL at the 'boonies'... you sure do have fun.
