Saturday morning was perfect
for an egg hunt at the Lincoln Park District. The weather was
cool, which was OK for all those youngsters who were dashing
across the golf green, grabbing up plastic eggs by the fists full.
The hunt began at 10 a.m.
with the littlest scavengers getting to go first. The green was
roped off into four sections with eggs scattered in each one. For the youngest group, the eggs were laid on the ground fairly close to
the starting line, so there wouldn't be so much running to fetch up a
basketful of treats. As the age groups progressed, by the time
the oldest hunters were up, they were required to run almost to the
target to scarf up eggs and prizes.
The younger groups were also
allowed to have a little help from moms, dads, brothers, sisters,
grandmas and grandpas, and even aunts and uncles! However,
the older kids were on their own, but not without some coaching and
cheering from the sidelines.
