A Cute Little Bunny With Some Eggs

I can remember when I was a kid one of the things that I wanted to do the most was the one thing I never did…go on an Easter Egg Hunt!  I would see the video clips on television on the annual hunt at the White House and was just turned inside out with jealousy.  To be honest it wasn’t so much the event but my desire for hardboiled eggs.  I just loved those eggs and I still do.  To me heaven was a basket of dyed eggs at home and being at the hunt where I could collect as many eggs that I could.

Nowadays, if the itch were to scratch me, I could take advantage of the egg hunts at several metroparks in the metro Detroit region.  Let’s take a look…
