Easter Egg Hunt

I have heard it said recently, welcome to the Egg are set in a line. Someone yells, Ready! Set! Gooooo! kids will then run and grab as many colorful eggs as they can. Well, we just recently had an Egg Hunt. The second year that Hope Blooms put it on. But as a family we have been doing it for a long time. We divide kids into age groups. the older you are, the harder you must look. Sort of like an amazing race. Kids have to look through woods, brush and watch out for trees.

This year, we added a wheel chair trail. We had some local boy scouts come out the beginning of April and help pound down a grassy and sandy trail for wheel chairs to maneuver around.

One mama said, "This is magical" Another mama asked me to not take her picture with her little one, because she was crying...My favorite part of the children a chance that normally are not given a chance to grab eggs...Aaron, who is wheelchair bound, Deaf and Blind, man his smile will be something I treasure forever~ He had so much fun grabing these eggs hanging from trees, and then would place them in his lap, and clap...He was having fun. He couldn't even eat the stuff in the eggs...but did that matter? He was able to participate....

Hope Blooms...a place for fun. A place for acceptance, a place for, yellow black or white....seeing, non seeing, hear or no hear...walk or no walk...we love you all.
