Ever done an Easter egg hunt in the snow?

It must be a no-brainer. Unless you didn't dye the eggs. lol.

It's still butt-cold here. Colder than it was at Christmas. In fact, it looks very Christmassy outside. We took the PT Cruiser up to Mont Royal park. (The park is a 1000 foot muffin in the middle of the city.) From the parking area, we walked out to the lookout. People were cross country skiing still!

We reached the lookout point, the winds whipping us relentlessly. But the visibility was fabulous. A snow shower descended shortly after this and then we went into the lodge for a hot chocolate. It was quite possibly the best hot chocolate I've ever had.

Today we're off to MIL's house for Easter face-stuffing. I'm hoping for pig's feet, MIL makes a mean plate of those. Tomorrow, I've got to give the car back, and the long weekend will be over.

Happy Easter (or other label) Sunday! Enjoy yourselves.

Happy Easter. It snowed last night, but we will still do it. Actually, I won't because I'm down with the flu. But I want to wish my buds a happy Bunny Day. Here in the US, you can't call the Rabbit the Easter Bunny anymore. I forget what he is now. Me, I wait for the sales to clean up on all those solid bunnies.

I've been to Montreal two or three times, but never taken the time to go atop Mont Royal. (makes mental note to do so next time)

Enjoy the pigs feet!
Happy (fuck-like-a) Bunny Day!

Great pics and story as always.

I think I can almost see the ears of the Easter bunny buried under the snow from where you hit him with the PT Cruiser.

I'm glad you had a good day. How does MIL prepare the pigs feet? That sounds like an interesting recipe. I'm only familiar with pickling them.

I had sushi Sunday, but it was still Passover for me, so no rice.

You look very handsome and rugged and explorer-ish in that last photo. Or maybe you just look pissed because it's so friggin cold. One or the other.
