    Had about 100 at the egg hunt today. Best weather in the last four years, about 40 and no rain or snow. Hope to improve some more next year. We spend several days getting ready and the eggs are all gone in about half hour. Lots of smiling faces

    Haven’t started on it yet. There were quite a few chocolate eggs left over. I will try to be judicious, but once you start it’s hard to stop.
