Helicopter Egg Drop

>> Tuesday, April 3, 2012

One day last week my mom called and told me about an ad she saw for a new church that was hosting a Helicopter Easter Egg Drop on Saturday.  I knew anything that included a helicopter and an egg hunt was something Jackson would love.  So, I signed him up and made a call into L.M.N.O.P. to ship out Jackson's helicopter shirt ASAP.  Aunt Stephanie knew of his love for 'copters and made him a shirt just because, but now we really needed it!  I mean, Jackson couldn't attend his first helicopter egg drop without proper attire;)

Saturday morning was hotter than hot for the last weekend in March, but Jackson absolutely loved the whole experience.  We got to the field just in time to watch the helicopter fly over the field to pick up the Easter Bunny and eggs.  Then it flew back over us and dropped 6,000 eggs onto the field! I have to say, it was pretty cool!

The kids were separated by age on the field, and it took no time at all for the eggs to be snatched up.  Jackson wasn't too aggressive, but he did manage to get a basket full of eggs.  The eggs were empty, so after the hunt, we traded in the eggs for handfuls of candy.  Jackson was in heaven (and a sticky mess within seconds)!
Before we headed home to sit by the pool to cool off, Jackson got his picture with the Easter Bunny.  He was sure to thank the bunny for all the candy and wanted to know where the 'copter went! Every time he hears a helicopter now he thinks the bunny is bringing him more eggs:)
