Easter on Parade

It's that time of year again!  Some of you may remember the famous annual Monument Avenue Easter on Parade tradition from last year, (or revisit it  by clicking here, if you don't), and yesterday the parade was in full swing yet again.  So, as your Easter candy sugar high slowly winds down, here's a look back at all of the Easter bonnets and bunny ears from yesterday's fĂȘte.    

Olivia is decked out in her Easter eggs and bunny ears, ready to parade around town!

The hunt for the Easter bunny begins.

Where is that bunny? 

Our first Easter bonnet sighting.

Fresh cut flowers ...

... but still no bunny.

What is scarier than a clown on the loose?  A giant clown on the loose.

Maybe the bunny is this way?

Water break!

Me, in my Great Grandmother's 'Easter Bonnet,' and Olivia in her egg hunt outfit take a break in the shade.

Check out these two canines showing us all a thing or two about how to sport an Easter bonnet

... and this dashing fellow looking dapper in his Easter tie.

It's an impromptu sidewalk band!

Those cooler than cool pups getting even cooler with some help from a quick doggie dip.

Some seriously festive head gear.

Hunting the elusive Easter bunny has proven quite a task, requiring even more water.

There is only one way left to go; that bunny must be this way.

No Easter bunny for Olivia, but she did meet someone better.  Watch out Carrie Bradshaw, this is the real Mr Big! 

O is all smiles about her new friend...

... and Mr Big looks a little taken with Olivia, and all of those 'toys' around her neck as well.

Happy Easter!
