Easter egg hunts, Easter Pow Wow, and live music happening this weekend in the 10!

    Goodbye, March! Looks like the weather will hold out pretty well for all of the Easter egg hunts happening everywhere this weekend! For a little perspective…last year there was snow on the ground, but there were still some die-hard egg hunters. Most (if not all) of the hunts this year are being held on Saturday…the snow won’t be here until Sunday, so it sounds like it’ll be a fun one. The running theme I’m seeing is that you should get there early because these hunts start right on the dot!

    Easter Egg hunts are always fun. I remember I used to decorate my own basket when I was a kid…winding the pink or yellow ribbon tightly around the handle, and placing enough of the plastic green grass in it, just so. The best thing about Easter? Dressing up for church and mom’s deviled eggs!

    “Oh, it’s springtime in the Rockies…” (made you sing it)! The promise of Spring always brings with it a time for reflection and renewal as our Earth stretches and yawns, soon to wake and once again show us the beauty and wonders of Life…and there’s no place on Earth like Wyoming in the springtime to watch it all happen!


    Have a happy and blessed Easter weekend, Fremont County!
