Last Friday morning, the CBIZ Easter Bunnies worked quickly and quietly, sneaking around the office hiding Easter eggs for our First Annual Easter Egg Hunt. And naturally because it was the first (of what we hope to be many) egg hunt, we had to make it a complete surprise! You never know how grown adults will view the prospect of an egg hunt, but we were relieved to see that EVERYONE was ready to play - I mean, who wouldn't want to win gift cards and candy, right?

As it's the end of busy season, we didn't want to the hiding spots to be too difficult, but we also couldn't just give the prizes away - so we had fun with it!

(Our egg hiders were very proud of this hiding spot.)

Much to our disappointment, the first of two Golden Eggs was found 10 minutes, but the 2nd was found last - so we didn't do too badly at hiding them. Next year, we'll be finding MUCH harder spots!

Overall, our First Annual Easter Egg Hunt was a great success, and helped all of us take our minds off of the stresses of busy season for a few minutes. We'll definitely be doing this again next year!

Some of our winners...

(Pictured: Michael Milliken, Audit Extraordinaire, and winner of the first Golden Egg, who we secretly suspect is a former Easter Hunt champion.)

(Pictured: Jianjie Li, Tax Pro. Not only did Li find the 2nd Golden Egg, but it was his first egg hunt ever! That's got to be the most fun case of beginner's luck we've ever seen.)
