Spring has sprung

Easter is just around the corner. You know what that means? Festival time!

I swear, this city doesn't really need a reason, much less a major holiday, to warrant having a festival. It's actually kind of cool. On any given weekend, you don't have to throw a stone very far to find a celebratory gathering of something or other.

A couple of weekends ago, my Dad's company threw a huge Easter egg hunt and festivities for employees and their extended families. Let's hit the highlights shall we?

Must get the requisite pic with the bunny

The girls were all about some face painting. Little A wanted a cat

Big A chose a rainbow

Now it was time to hunt some eggs. These girls took the challenge seriously.

After 60 seconds of feverish egg hunting, the girls were ready to unwind with a pony ride. Little A is up first.

Big A is all about moving up from a pony to a "real" horse. I'm not sure I'm ready for her to make that transition.

And so we wrapped up the day with some sweets and a much needed nap for everyone involved. A great day indeed!

We never go to festivals anymore. We have the "Bean Festival" here. It's always in August so it's 115 out and the same thing every year.

Awww, what sweeties. Impressive job on the face painting, too. I remember when my dad's companies used to have big festivals like that but it's all long since been cut. ESPECIALLY at my company. I miss the good old days.

And good luck with that horse fever!
