The Rehearsal for the Hunt | PSF


Easter calls for a couple dress rehearsals.

Well, to be honest, we’ve never done our own hunt. Typically, there are like three dress rehearsals (between our neighborhood, church and their school), so we are hunted out by the big day.

We only have one customer that is happy to sit with full-sized characters. And really, I can see why. This bunny is a little creepy.

Easter Rehearsal

I think there were more parents in the three/four year old area then kids. She was sooo upset and ran up to me crying that she only got a “couple eggs” and that she wanted “a lot of eggs.” (If we would have gone by the age they consider her because of her October birthday, she should have gone with the two year olds. Somehow I think those parents wouldn’t have appreciated it!)

Definitely the most popular age group.

Not too long after was the 5 year old hunt (which technically, she should have gone to that first hunt). It’s so confusing for us…we weren’t trying to break the rules, just to be fair to the other kids. Which lucked #2 out because this age group didn’t have many kids, so we let her grab a couple more eggs.

They were both quite pleased with their bounty…and I might have been, too because they were nice enough to share.

It would be nice, though if we had an Easter that wasn’t hot…then there might be chocolate or peanut butter in those eggs.

  1. Iz has on cowboy boots with her Easter dress…gosh I love her! I’m glad Nat got to get more eggs. That bunny is pretty creepy—sorry Easter bunny costume peeps out there. I’m making you peanut butter-the honey roasted kind! I’ll send it with chocolate and you’ll be all set. Imagine how luxurious your life would be if you lived in TX! Just saying:-)

    Easter bunnies are pretty creepy. We took our girls to an Easter egg hunt this past weekend. I’m surprised our 7 month old did not cry when being held by the bunny.

    1. I think the magic age for crying with the creepies is a little over a year..at least here it is!

  3. Wow, that’s a lot of eggs on the ground, what did they have in them if not chocolate!? Mmmmm, chocolate! (And I think that big bunny is adorable!) 🙂

  4. The bunny is a bit scary! Glad one let you get a picture though! The girls look like they had fun regardless.

    i love that you have a community hunt like this. We usually just hide eggs at our house or outside and let them go and find them, i wish we could get other kids and parents involved in my community! and she is the cutest thing ive ever seen!

    1. The big ones here are usually at our churches…maybe they have them at churches near you?

  6. Looks like so much fun!

    I agree that the bunny looks a little creepy. My son is 16 months & we decided to wait another year before going to the Easter egg hunts. I’m excited for when he gets to start going, though! It looks like there were a ton of kids at the egg hunt you went to! Wow, how fun!

  8. That looks like chaos! But fun chaos:) We don’t have anything like that here since there is still snow on the ground and it is still pretty cold. I know my kids would have a blast at an egg hunt though. We usually just hide some eggs in the house for them to find:)

    1. Snow? Yikes..one of the advantages of the mid-south I guess…I can’t even imagine.

      Usually, we have to deal with rain.

  9. Lol. My toddlers are a little iffy about the Easter bunny too. Hope you and your family have a Happy Easter!

  10. we have yet to do one of those big hunts – they kinda freak me out! plus the girls don’t know about them yet, so for now we will stick with hunts in the back yard at grandparents houses!!

    This looks like fun, but a little to crowded I would have cried too lol.

    1. It was a little on the crowded side, but they did well!

    Mmm chocolate and peanut butter. God’s gift to pregnant woman. We live in Michigan, so it’s an option for eggs. The neighbors left their eggs in the yard for HOURS and I was seriously contemplating opening a few. We walked by and my dog was sniffing one like crazy. So I know they had to have something good inside!

    1. Yes, you could totally have chocolate in your eggs!

      I would have picked one or two up off your neighbors lawn!

  13. Two of my three kids are in these pictures :-). And only one of mine would reluctantly sit on that bunny’s lap.

  14. Wow, looks like there were a lot of people there!
