Easter eggs sunny side down

Mother Nature might have slowed him down, but she couldn't stop the Easter bunny on Saturday.


As rain continued to drown the region this weekend, many egg hunts were canceled or moved inside.

But it didn't stop the Finchville Ruritan Club from having its annual egg hunt around the old Finchville school.

"My kids love it," Jeanine Barrett said. "They think it's more fun in the rain."

Although the rain did pause just long enough for the egg hunt in Finchville, many youngsters still wound up wet from running through the grass.

"Our crowd's usually a little bigger, we only had about half the size this year," said Julie Sanchez, who organizes the event for the club. "But we put out the same number of eggs, and I'm glad we did it because the kids had a ball."

First Christian Church moved its event inside, but it didn't stop a big turnout.

Children lined up to play several games and earn prizes, and then they raced around the church for an inside egg hunt.
