So I'm back to playing in my own backyard again, at least my old backyard. Today Rich and I took Patrick and his boys out for the annual Easter egg hunt sponsored by the New Paltz Youth Program. I was surprised at the number of children that showed up. What was nice is that the egg hunt is broken up by age group, which allows for the younger children to have a fair shot at gathering eggs. Patrick and Thatius opted to join the 7-9 year olds as opposed to the 4-6 year olds, which worked out well for them, well at least for Patrick, Thatius was a tad bit afraid of the Easter Bunny and ended up hanging out with Rich for the hunt. Sebastian and Patrick both got about 15 eggs which were filled with various candies, caramels, smarties, gum, tootsie rolls and taffy. The event is well organized and starts off with the Easter Bunny arriving on a fire truck. There are bathroom facilities for the weak bladdered, but no food and beverages were for sale. We had perfect weather for our egg hunt, mid 50's, bright and sunny. This is a great event for children of all ages. I highly recommend this even for anyone and everyone. This event is free too.
