Monday Memory #6 - Easter!
I have such great memories of Easter when my brother and I were kids. Both sets of grandparents and my Aunt would make the drive from Pittsburgh to Bloomington, IL (10 hrs!) to visit us. We would be spoiled rotten.
Of course, Easter baskets then and now are very different! We would get the basket with the colored plastic "grass" (loved that!) and we each got one big chocolate bunny and some jelly beans. Then we would find the plastic eggs that came apart which would have more candy and some times a few coins inside - very exciting at the time! We loved it.
One Easter in particular my brother and I decided WE would hide the eggs and make the adults find them. I think we were 8 and 9 at the time. It seems so silly now, but we had such fun watching our parents and grandparents search for the eggs! And they were such good sports about it - going up and down the steps in search of them.
Sadly, I no longer have any grandparents living and I miss them like crazy. I do have my dear Aunt Mary who always had loads of time to play with my brother and I and even though I won't see her this Easter I'll be sure to call her and say, "Remember when...".
