    Once upon a time, kids thrilled at the prospect of an Easter egg hunt in their own yards or maybe the churchyard.

    Evidently, hiding boiled-colored eggs in the grass and bushes isn’t good enough anymore.

    Underwater Easter egg hunts dot the Dallas-Fort Worth pool-scape during the next couple of weeks leading up to Easter Sunday, and when did this become a thing?

    Next up: Wii Easter egg hunts.

    Anyway, similar but unrelated underwater Easter egg hunts take place in Irving, that one’s tonight, Keller, tomorrow, and Flower Mound, April 23, and follow the links for details.

    The Mom Blog lists other offshoots from traditional Easter egg hunts such as a candy-free hunt — is nothing sacred? — an airplane Easter egg drop in Cleburne — incoming — and a Big Cats Easter egg hunt at In-Synch Exotics Wildlife sanctuary.

    Hmm, wonder if the lions and tigers get to hunt that day, too.
