Easter Egg Hunts in Fairfield County, CT
The Easter Bunny has some explaining to do. Last year, that darn bunny pooped jellybeans all over my carpet (inspired by the movie Hop). In fact, my kids were so disgusted that they no longer have any love lost for either jellybeans or the Easter bunny. To warm back up to the furry fellow, we’re planning on hitting not one, but several, local Egg Hunts in hopes that the Easter Bunny will redeem himself. Note to self…no jellybeans! You can find even more events in Fairfield County here.
