Some Bunny Say it isn't True!


It's spring, right?? In true midwestern fashion, anywhere from 1 to 3 to 10-12 inches of snow has been forecast for Sunday--Palm Sunday, April 5!! OY!! Today, our local YMCA held its annual Easter Egg hunt. Even winds of 40mph did not keep the Easter Bunny or lots of kids away. But, believe me with that cold and strong wind blowing, those eggs were swooped up fasssst!!! Probably one of the only times that Maddy and I will want hot chocolate after an Easter egg hunt -- it was really chilly out! Even though we may have snow tomorrow (please say it isn't so!), we are looking at the positives. If it does snow, it should not last very long. The weather forecasters have been wrong many times when they have forecast snow during this past winter/spring season. And, we are headed to warmer temps next week to spend a little time with a very favorite Mouse of Maddy's (mine too). So while others in our fair city may be searching for their snow shovels, we're searching for flip-flops and shorts!

Looks like she found a lot of eggs! I feel for you with the weather - I think I'd be depressed if there were a possibility of snow in April!

I'm sure Maddie has read JB and The Dumb Bunny - Jade loved that book - our Easter egg hunt is next Saturday - she thinks there's going to be a golden egg there too!!

We have snow in the forecast for Monday, but tomorrow it is supposed to be 70. Thanks for bringing up the positives and hopefully the weatherman is wrong again!!

It looks like you had a great time at the Easter egg hunt today. We had a great time too, however, it was soooo chilly and windy. We couldn't get out of there fast enough!

Hoping and praying Mr. Weatherman is wrong about tomorrow. I will seriously be depressed if it snows!

You are going to have a great time on your trip next week. Get those flip flops packed up and ready to go!

We are expecting the snow here on Tuesday. Unbelievable!!!! Hope you have fun with Mickey and looking forward to those pictures!

I am glad Maddy had fun at the Easter Egg Hunt today despite the WIND!

I am really jealous about your trip not because of the weather but because of you get to see Mickey and Minnie too! Have a great trip!

It was nice seeing you two days in a row!

Missy said...

It may have been chilly outside, but Maddy sure looks like she had a great time! I hope the weatherman is wrong and the snow bypasses you guys!

Have a blast visiting my favorite mouse, too! Can't wait to see pics!

Rachel said...

We might get some snow, but I am on my way to VA with the kids tomorrow so we'll hopefully miss it!

Have a great trip to Disney!

Looks like Maddy had a major haul! This "spring" weather in the Midwest is crazy this year, isn't it?

Bridget said...

Looks like a fun Easter egg hunt- even if it was cold! I hope it has warmed up for you guys! We had snow on Sunday but thankfully it melted by yesterday. Let's hope Spring is here to stay! Hope all's well!

Maddy looks so cold in that photo of her picking up an egg. I can almost feel the wind whipping her hair around...brrr!! Have a happy Easter anyway, though, Janet! :)
