Easter Bunny Tales

The Easter Bunny Tales

We had perfect weather for Easter weekend and all the grandchildren enjoyed multiple egg hunts. However, I have to tell you a funny story about the Easter Bunny, but first let me show you the grandkids getting ready to hunt eggs.

Easter Bunny Tales

You will probably notice they don’t look really happy here. It was hot and they didn’t want to wait. Why can’t we go right now? You will also notice their cute baskets. No, I didn’t make them but they each have their names on them and you can read about the lady who does make them here.

Easter Bunny Tales

Like any good dad my son-in-law wanted to make sure his son understood where he was to go and what he was to do. He need not have worried. My grandson is almost 3 and he caught on really fast!

In fact he did so well that his older sister was jealous and cried because he got more than she did. My son-in-law pointed out that life isn’t fair while my daughter tried to take some of the eggs from little brother’s basket to put in big sis’s basket to even it out. It didn’t work. Little brother was in no mood to share.

This is my favorite picture of the day. When they finally got the signal to “Go” they were off like  jack rabbits! My daughter actually made this picture but the 3 of them running together is priceless.

When it came time to have their picture make with the Easter Bunny this guy went first, but his sister refused. Evidently when you are only 4 the bunny can look a little “scarwy,” according to my granddaughter.

The End of the Easter Bunny Tales

My daughter was one of the people in charge of the hunt and she was the one who had to go get the bunny suit and take it back. After the hunt we had a family cook out at our house and most of the family was able to come (there’s always someone sick). Our twins and their brother were playing basketball on the outside court and the little guy sitting next to the bunny in the last picture wanted to play too. They told him no, that they were having a Big Boy game but when they finished he could play. He didn’t take this news well and was really mad and stomping around.

It was getting dark and I started out to the ball court to see if I could console my grandson who was really mad by this time. I got about half way there when he turned and started running to me yelling and crying, “The Easter Bunny’s gonna get me!”

I looked at my sons and said, “Seriously, you’re trying to scare him away? Aren’t you too old to bully a 5 year old?”

“Mom, look!” they said and pointed.

The Easter Bunny was slowly hopping around my house! It was almost dark and the white bunny with the slow but steady hop did look extremely creepy.

I assured my grandson he was safe but he didn’t believe me and neither did any of the other kids. I’m not sure they will ever feel the same about the Easter Bunny again.

When I got back in the house my son-in-law was covered in sweat (the bunny suit was hot) and doubled over in laughter. He wanted to wear the suit up town and hop around the square but we advised him not to. You just never know what’s going to happen at Nana’s house!
