The Hunter's Creed

Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night will stay these children from hunting eggs.

It rained all morning and we knew there was a chance they would cancel the annual city egg hunt, but we decided to try anyway.

The girls only have two more years of hunting before they age out, so I didn't want to skip this year unless absolutely necessary.

When we drove up, there was only a slight drizzle and the volunteers were nearly done "hiding" the eggs. So, we jumped out and shivered until it was go-time. Normally there are kids packed along the sidewalk. This year, it was our family, my brother's and two other kids in our age range. Needless to say, the girls hit the Easter egg jackpot. 

Afterward, to warm our hands and satisfy our growling bellies, we headed to our favorite donut shop. Mmmmmmm.

Success all around.
