Growing up, I always used to go to egg hunts at my great grandmother's house. She'd hide eggs and invite not only the great grand kids, but half the neighborhood. Kids would be swarming all over her property in search of hard boiled eggs. That was back in the day when it was okay to eat an egg that'd been hidden all morning. Back when we didn't die because of it. Kids these days are weak, they're not allowed to eat old eggs for fear of stomach cramps or dying. Wimps.
Plastic eggs for today's wimpy kids.
Anyhoo...as I said, we're on our way to Oregon. We may even be there by the time you're reading this! We'll most likely head southeast, through Ellensburg, then down to the John Day region where I'm thinking we'll spend the night.
Come Monday morning we'll explore the fossil beds. If I understand it correctly, you can actually keep some of the fossils you find! How terribly cool is that?
Burns, OR is a bit more than an hour south of John Day, so we ought to be there at some point in the afternoon. The walking tour, I've been told, takes about an hour. For me? Probably two or three...or four or five... When do you think they close? Do you suppose they'd let me just camp out?
Hopefully I'll be able to post later tonight the things we saw and did today. I hope you're all having a blessed Easter! Don't forget that Jesus is the reason for this season as well =)
