Easter is always a special time

I'm not sure what's going on with the Easter Bunny's left eye, but it was indeed a Happy Easter event at our neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt today. Our organizers for 2016 didn't have an area roped off for egg hunters in the 40-plus crowd, but there was plenty of socializing to make up for that slight.
