Rain, rain go away. You made Easter soggy today.

So after we let Elli get all sugared up this morning, we took her to Miwok stables in Mill Valley for a tour of the stables and an Easter egg hunt - - -  in the rain.

It was just sprinkling a teeny tiny bit at our house when we left. So I had high hopes that it wouldn't be raining at the stables a few miles away.

Well, it was raining there. A lot. We did get to see the horses and hunt for eggs in the horse pasture, with a few other crazy egg hunters. It's too bad it was raining. The volunteers at the stables went to a lot of trouble getting 1,500 hard boiled eggs hidden for the munchins!

First we got to meet all the horses.

The horses were really pretty and very friendly with the kids.

Finally the Easter bunny gathered everyone by the gate. 


It was a bit soggy in the field.

She kept smiling the whole time. Even when she was soaked!
Elli was smiling, not me. Of course I was smiling. I had on bunny ears!! She was too cool. I've never been cool. So hippity hop I wore the ears.

A little hot chocolate and a hot shower and she'll be as good as new. Plus, we promised to take her to see "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" this afternoon. So all is good!

Except that we now have 8 + 16 = 24 hard boiled eggs. Ay caramba. That's a lot of egg salad.
