Interesting day today. I worked a day shift instead of a mid shift. I hate mornings. Sarah took the kids to an Easter egg hunt at a local track and field type stadium. Apparently the event wasn't the most organized or well thought out event. They had different areas cordoned off for different age groups. The organizers were not too strict about keeping those groups separate. There were older kids running around snatching the eggs in the little kids area and then lining up in the other areas and pillaging all the eggs. Max didn't get any eggs in his age group area so he went with Michael into the bigger kid area. With Sarah's help, they each got 4-5 eggs. Then comes the next confusing part, the eggs had paper in them which could be redeemed for a special prize. Or you could turn in your hard boiled egg for a prize. They had lines for paper with one marking, another for a different marking and then one to exchange hard boiled eggs for something. Turns out it was for the individually wrapped pre made pies like you could buy in a convenience store. Or a snack cake...again, like you get at a convenience store. There were a bunch of kids that didn't get anything in their baskets because of the bigger kids who took all of the eggs. Michael and Max ran across a young kid with nothing in his basket. Of their own volition, they each took one egg from their basket and gave it to the other kid. I love my guys.
