As my father (and probably many fathers) used to say: You learn something new every day.
Today, what I learned was this: always have a bag / basket / pail handy, because you never know when you might encounter an Easter Egg Hunt.
Okay. This is seasonal knowledge. But it’s still worth knowing, right?
Zoe and I were on our way to the Litchfield Opera House for some Easter games and crafts this morning when we spotted a bunch of kids converging on Central Park with buckets and baskets and bags in their hands. I was delighted and dismayed all at once.
Delighted, because: Easter Egg Hunt! Dismayed, because: I do not actually travel with an Easter basket, even at this time of year.
Luckily, I had a gallon Ziploc bag with some extra clothes tucked in the diaper bag (Pro Tip: Diaper bags are handy!). Instant Easter Egg Hunt bag!
This year, Zoe is old enough to understand what an egg hunt is, and to demand a bag for the occasion. Luckily, she is not old enough to care what kind of bag it is.
Happy Easter, friends! May all your hunting today be fruitful, and may there be plenty of plastic eggs for everyone.
