Forget Easter Egg Hunts, I Want The Bunny!

This year Angie and I decided that instead of doing an Easter Egg Hunt, we wanted something better. Why be satisfied with just a limited amount of candy filled eggs, when you could get unlimited candy filled eggs by catching the source itself? So that's what we decided to do, catch the ever elusive Easter Bunny. An Easter Bunny Hunt, if you will. During the early hours of Easter morning, we set up watch. Time passed, and we waited... and waited...and waited...until it seemed the Easter Bunny would not be paying us a visit this year. When all of a sudden, from around the corner, we heard what sounded like the noise of a small bunny delivering some candy filled eggs. We peered around the corner, and to our delight caught a glimpse of the Easter Bunny! It was inspecting each egg, ensuring that each was in perfect condition and ready to be left in our baskets.


















We silently crept around the corner, hoping to snatch up the Easter Bunny from behind. The Easter Bunny, however, is not so easily caught. It has been in similar situations before, as many a child has unsuccessfully attempted what we were attempting to do. As we quietly approached, the bunny's keen senses quickly alerted it to our presence. It turned and looked at us in surprise, it had found us!














The bunny quickly turned and took flight, leaving Easter eggs strewn behind it in it's path. It was off to the races!


















We would not let it go without a chase, however. We hurried after it closely as it dashed away. Now, the Easter Bunny has never before been caught. It is not an easy thing to do. However, in this case, we were fortunate. The Easter Bunny made a never before, drastic, mistake. Rather than run for the outdoors, it ran straight into our bedroom. It was trapped, we had it cornered and there was no way out. As I leaned down to pick it up, it made one last valiant effort to escape by trying to scurry under our legs. There was no luck for the Easter Bunny this year, however. I snatched it up around the waist and held it triumphantly in the air as it tugged on it's ear in defeat.


















We had done it, we had caught the Easter Bunny! Upon capturing the bunny, however, we realized that if we kept it for it's unlimited supply of candy filled eggs, we would be disappointing millions of other little children. We imagined the sad faces of all of the many children who would excitedly wake up in the morning, only to discover that their Easter basket had not been filled. So what did we do with our little capture, you might ask? We took pictures with our little friend, and then we happily let it go. Happy Easter!
