It was tiring day for 17-month-old Calliope Vaughn, who found one purple egg during the hunt. She’s a natural Easter egg hunter, according to her father, Tim Vaughn, who said she jumped over the line and took one - instinctively knowing what to do.
The race is on for 6-year-old Aaron White (pictured right), who only got five eggs to start, but he’s prepared to pick up 1,000 eggs in his basket, he said.
Mikyla Cardwell, 7, came to her mother with tears of joy after she found golden egg. She plans on saving the metallic egg to remember this Easter for a very long time.
Although organizers tried to make sure all the children found eggs, some, like 4-year-old Erianna Beckley, were hoping for more.
