Easter Saturday

The Taylor Museum in Berlin, MD hosted the city of Berlin's Easter egg hunt, egg toss, three-legged race and spoon race. Jack thought about competing in all the contests but decided it was best just to stick to the egg hunt.
He didn't seem to mind that he didn't technically meet the age requirement to participate.

He managed to find a bunch of eggs, and we managed to eat the candy that was hidden inside each one.

Then we wandered into downtown Berlin. The town had closed down the streets so we could wander and even let Jack get out of the stroller and do some wandering of his own. The bank was hosting a carnival with some rides like teacups and the super slide. The town has set up about 30 little booths like carnival games for kids. They had a ring toss, apple bob and a bunch of other activities that Jack isn't quite old enough to know how to play. The local girl scout troop was volunteering to run most of the booths. That brings back some old fun memories for me, because my mom was my troop leader.

But just like Goldie Locks, this game was just right. We paid a whopping 25 cents for Jack to dig in the sand to find a cool toy.

Mostly he just wanted to use the toy to push the sand around in the box. But this activity provided several minutes of quality entertainment.

Then we dyed Easter eggs. I tried to make my annual big-gay-egg, which is just my fancy way of saying rainbow egg but there was something wrong with the red/pink dye and it wasn't adhering to the eggs so I had to improvise:

I give you striped egg.

Then during dinner we saw the Easter Bunny hanging out in GiGi and Grandpa's yard!
