I can’t believe it’s almost Easter, but getting the invitation for the 9th Annual Eckerd College Alumni Egg Hunt made it real. I’m pretty sure we have been to every one of the annual events. (btw, Chad is the alumnus…class of “91)
I know we were at the First Annual EC Alumni Egg Hunt. I have the photos to prove it.
It was the spring of 2004. Cal was two years old and I was 8 months pregnant with Mack.
With the T kids, who are both now teenagers. Zoe is driving! I’m so old.
For the 2nd Annual EC Alumni Egg Hunt we had Mack.
Yes, that’s me quite a bit heavier. I remember being hot and uncomfortable. But not as uncomfortable as Mack was around the Easter Bunny.
Oh, my little sweet potato.
The boys are very accustomed to the Eckerd Egg Hunt tradition, so they were more than happy when we headed there this morning for the 9th Annual Hunt.
After running 10 miles this morning and having eaten nothing (except coffee with milk…my stomach did not want food at 5 o’clock this morning), I was very happy that the traditional grilled cheese and chicken nuggets were being offered.
They also had fruit and veggies and brownies.
The first order of business is always lunch!
Apparently they knew I would look cute today…check out my name tag typo:
Cal said he was only in it for the candy…
but Mack wanted a balloon axe.
Obligatory Mom and boys photo shoot:
Yes, my dress was kind of short in case you didn’t notice. I knew it was too short and I wore it anyway. Deal.
The wind made my hair crazy.
Childhood made the boys crazy.
Pretty soon it was time for the boys to line up in the “big kids” area.
Eckerd has a beautiful campus on the waterfront.
On your mark…
Both boys ended up with a basketful of eggs. Candy!
It was great to see our friend Jesse T. who works for Eckerd. Those are his munchkins (the “T” kids) above. Again, it was windy!
Jesse took a family portrait for us:
I can’t believe I didn’t get a photo of the Easter Bunny this year! Nobody seemed interested in him really. Times are changing around here. I wonder how many more Annual Eckerd Egg Hunts we have ahead of us?
I guess you can tell from Chad’s t-shirt above what our early evening plans include (that would be NCAA basketball for my non-US readers). Go Big Blue! I’m all filled in on the historic rivalry backstory. Chad listened to me talk about running, then I had to listen to him talk about basketball. We have this marriage thing down.
