I blinked. "Yes, just like that."
On Easter morning, while he was at church with my parents, the Easter bunny stopped by and dropped off the following note:
I need your help. While I was dyeing eggs, a wicked snow bird - allied with the snow spiders - stole the candy eggs! The snow bird has filled her nests with eggs. Those she couldn't fit, she gave to the snow spiders to hide in their webs - along with some gold doubloons.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to recover the eggs. If you are caught by the snow bird or the snow spiders, I will disavow all knowledge of this operation.
Good luck, son.
The E. Bunny
P.S. There's a map.
There was a treasure map, carefully marked with X's. He chose to accept.
Snow birds nest in the sides of snow banks.
And in vast, glacier-like expanses of snow.
Gold doubloons. Snow spiders can weave webs for days. They won't stop a dedicated treasure hunter.
And the wickedest, wiliest snow bird is no match for this kid.
Hope you had a great Easter...with far less snow than we had.
