The Hunt

Paul was wide awake, like I used to be as a kid, waiting for everyone else to wake up.

We had a small hunt indoors, like a practice before the game.

Then friends joined us to make the early trek up to Signal Hill.

I love watching and listening to the expression of children find anything hidden. It’s a mixture of wonder, surprise, and pride wrapped up in a single moment.

Joe did all the work (he hid 95 eggs) before we arrived.

The kids were looking high and low, until buckets were full and we ready for breakfast.

There is always a count to round up any last eggs.

We came home and seriously enjoyed two full documentaries (Jiro Dreams of Sushi & Bill Cunningham New York) in the living room, with the projector.
