Take little man to get his pictures taken with the Easter bunny. Check. Decorate Easter eggs. Check. Buy an Easter basket for collecting eggs. Check.
The only thing left on my to do list has been to find an Easter egg hunt close to our house that works with my son’s nap schedule (while keeping my fingers crossed that it doesn’t rain). I thought other busy moms might appreciate my research on some of the free egg hunts, bunny sitings and activities at various parks and other locations in the Sacramento region.
Let GOTG know if there are others and we’ll update this list before Easter weekend. I’m thinking about checking out the festivities at Fairytale Town (details below) and would love to hear if you’ve been there for Easter egg hunts in previous years.
