A Preamble to Easter

We live rurally. However, there is a neighborhood close by that is gated & moated (a very nice one, to say the least- a 1/4 acre lot goes for $50K). Anyway, we have a friend that lives in this neighborhood, thus allowing us entrance by the front guard shack as guests of hers. We feel quite lucky, as we are able to take advantage of those events that some neighborhoods offer that living rurally doesn't, i.e. Good Friday Easter Egg Hunts for the little ones, Halloween trick-or-Treating and going to the club-house pool for swimming in the summer.
The Friday Easter festivities are busy, loud and harried... but, for the most part, fun for the little ones.
Below is a video of our Little Someone meeting the Easter Bunny~ she wasn't so sure of this hairy big bunny... but, I guess, I wouldn't be either!
For book purposes, the below picture was put in place of the video.
It was taken from same time period and is the only pic I have from that Easter.

Don't forget to scroll down and pause or mute my Playlist on the right, so you can hear the video.
Here's another one of her gathering eggs.
Just for the record... in case it looks like I am just about dragging our daughter out before we start 'gathering'... I gently was... the camera does not catch the HERD(!) behind us, as each age group has a rope on the ground sectioning off eggs for that group... I did not want us to get bumped or smooshed. We were in the 3 and under group-though the announcer says '3 y/olds' (our daughter is 2yrs, 8 months). Also, one woman's voice on there (particularly at the beginning) is not mine -it was CROWDED... but not as much where we were. We were given a number limit on eggs, hence why we stopped.
Don't forget to scroll down and pause or mute my Playlist on the right, so you can hear the video.

This post is scheduled to post on Easter ~ hope you all have a good one.
