Easter 2013: The Medical Leave Edition

Things take me a lot longer after 16 hours of brain surgery.  Yes, I said 16 hours. 

So, this is probably not the best Egg Hunt and Easter Guide I’ve ever done, but if you’re looking for Egg Hunts for Kids in Prince William County or Easter Activities for kids in Prince William County, I can say I wrote something. 

Here we go.

All adults and families are welcome to enter the chapel, but we ask that you please be respectful of the experience that others are having, maintaining the reverence and the quiet of the room.   14999 Birchdale Avenue Dale City VA (This is right next to the baseball fields near KMart)

IF YOU WANT TO ADD YOUR EVENT:
1- Why didn’t you email it to me sooner?  No that’s not the same as posting it on my facebook wall, too many things get posted there for me to read every single Easter event and remember to move it here!
2- Don’t worry, I still love you, but since I am slow, please just post your event as a COMMENT ON THIS POST (not to facebook) so that anyone who reads this post can find it.  If the ability to post again hits me, I will try to move things up to their proper spot, but I make no promises.
3- I will (God Willing) be better next year and make an earlier and more comprehensive list.
