Jennifer’s Easter Sunday – Part 4


Jennifer’s Easter Sunday – Part 4 (The finale)

The church’s courtyard was buzzing with activity. There were so many children looking for eggs. Forty five minutes ago, the church’s bell rang three times, which signaled the start of the annual Easter egg hunt. There were probably a couple hundred eggs hidden all over the large courtyard. Children found eggs hidden in bushes, near statues and the water fountain and in the grass. Jennifer and Tiffany weren’t really looking for eggs. They were having fun just shooting the breeze and watching the other children look for eggs. 

The Easter egg hunt was starting to wind down, so the girls decided to call it a day. Jennifer and Tiffany said, “See you next Sunday,” as they waved goodbye to each other. Jennifer found her parents talking with other parents in front of the courtyard’s front entrance. Linda asked Jennifer if she had fun. Jennifer said she had a blast. Larry said, “Well, ladies. Are you ready to hit the road?” Linda and Jennifer both said yes, then all three of them went home.
