If Hunting Easter Eggs Was Their Job…

…Our boys would be some rich sons of guns!

Easter is one of my favorite holidays.  Our church promoted a “it’s not about the bunny” theme this year, which I loved.  Because hello, have you seen the Easter Bunny at the mall?  He is creepy and nothing about him says “Jesus is Risen”.

HOWEVER.

There is never any harm in doing a few egg hunts!

Drew knew exactly what to do.  I think it must be innate.

Stay tuned to hear what the Easter bunny brought for Easter…

I’ll give you a hint.

It starts with stomach.

And ends with bug.
