Survival of the fittest?8:59 AM
We decided to go to Wheeler farms for the Easter Egg hunt. We were absolutely amazed at the amount of people there. max waited patiently for 45 minutes outside the 4-7 year old egg hunt area. He had spotted the golden egg and was waiting to go snatch it.
Finally his moment came and they yelled GO! Max ran out and just as he was about to pick up the golden egg was pushed over by a kid who then walked over him and grabbed it. Max stood up mortified and started to cry. He walked over saying "mom, he pushed me and I didn't get the egg". I didn't know what to say, I just said that happens sometimes and that I was sorry.
Just then a guy who worked there saw what happened, pulled a golden egg out of his pocket and dropped it on the ground right behind Max. Max turned around and got it! He was extatic! He won 4 passes to the Living Aquarium. Here is his proud picture with his tickets.
So is it survival of the fittest? Max followed the rules, waited patiently and never crossed the line...and even after the "fit" kid pushed him over and got the egg, Max was rewarded for his good behavior....hmmm. :)
