DSC04199

Easter is gaining fast, Tulsa, and you know what that means.

Yeah, it does mean that my dad will be performing his annual suit-and-tie showcase at his church this Sunday, but it also means that it's time to hunt Easter eggs.

While there are scads of hunts going on in the Tulsa area, don't forget to get your photo taken with the Easter Bunny. He'll be at Promenade Mall at 41st and Yale until this Saturday, April 3. For EB's photo sitting schedule, click here.
