Lubbock kids enjoy an 'egg-cellent' Easter Sunday

Whether it was at a large community event or a small backyard gathering, children across the Hub City were on the hunt this Sunday for brightly colored, candy-filled treasure.

"It's just fun," said Beth White. "We have our little kids, and as parents we love to watch them go on Easter egg hunts and find candy. It's just a great time of year."

While Beth and Michael's two-year-old son Gibson slowly picked up the plastic eggs hidden in the backyard, others across town were in a frenzy trying to get as many eggs as possible during Bodyworks annual community Easter egg hunt.

"A lot of people wanted candy, so they were just grabbing and grabbing,"  said seven-year-old Paige, laughing.

More than 2,500 plastic eggs were hunted at two different Bodyworks locations, but it wasn't just about the face paintings and sugar rushes while playing in the bounce houses.

"Of course we have our symbolic things of Easter like bunnies, the little chickens and eggs — that all symbolizes new life. But the main reason it's so important is to remember Jesus. We celebrate Easter because Jesus Christ rose from the dead and he is still alive," said White.

Whether they were young like Gibson or older like his Uncle Matt —"I only got three eggs. I'm last place" — kids of all ages enjoyed a nice Sunday in Lubbock with family and friends.

    "Yes, the president said that 'he knew what he signed up for, but it hurts anyway.' And it made me cry 'cause I was very angry at the tone of his voice and how he said he couldn't remember my husband's name," Sgt. La David Johnson's widow said in an interview.
