Hoppy Bunny Day

I hope you've all had a wonderful Easter Sunday. We went to my parents for breakfast after the kids finished pawing through their baskets. We hung out there until noon then had to come home to get Dan and Darcie off to their fathers. Poor babies had to go there until 6 tonight and they weren't looking forward to it. The three of us hung out at home today. I did some knitting and took a nice long, hot tubby. I got about a half hour all to myself in the bathroom for my birthday. I'm a lucky girl. We picked Dan and Darcie up at 6 and went o my parents again. Only for dinner this time. We had ham and steak and it was delicious. I'm getting ready to go tuck my little angels in for the night. But before I do I have a story I was reminded of today...

Before I quit work to stay home with the kids I was the sales and catering manager at a local hotel. I loved my job. I've always been outgoing so I had a lot of fun with my job. One year I decided to dress as the Easter bunny and go hop around town to pass out menus for our Easter brunch. I put the big white bunny suit on and armed myself with menus and a HUGE bouquet of balloons to hand out to the kids on the street. Off I went. Hopping (literally) down Main Street. Just as I hopped across the main intersection in town I heard a really loud crash. I turned around and saw that a car had been rear ended. Why had this accident occurred you ask? Because the driver of the car was dumbfounded to see a big white bunny hoping down Main Street and didn't notice that the light was red and that there was a car stopped in front of him. The next day our local paper showed a picture of the accident (and me standing on the other corner in my bunny suit) on the front page. If I can dig out the paper I saved I'll be sure to post a photo.

OMG! That's hysterical. I use to dress up as the easter bunny for Lunch with the Easter Bunny (a fund raiser for the local Jaycees). Loved it because I loved the kids. My husband use to brag to his friends that his wife was a bunny. Playboy? No Easter.
