My days of enjoying taking my son to Easter Egg hunts or to see the Easter Bunny, are long gone. I really enjoyed watching him get so excited and having fun with his friends or cousins. I remember his first Easter Egg hunt and watching him getting knocked out of the way by bigger kids, but still happy to get even one egg. I am however, still looking forward to this Easter weekend, since my son, who is a Freshmen at The University of Florida, in Gainseville, will be coming home for the weekend. We won't be having any Easter egg hunts, but we will be spending some quality time together. Since he has been away at college, he seems to appreciate me more when he comes home.
If you do have a little one, or little ones, it’s not too late too get in on the fun and take them to an Easter Egg Hunt, to see the Easter bunny, or other Easter festivities. There are still plentyof events this weekend, throughout the county, so you should be able to find something that works for you, the underwater Easter Egg hunt in Palm Bay, seems like it would be a lot of fun.
