Happy Easter Everyone!

Happy Easter everyone! Here are more scenes of our favorite white bike display on Sudley Road in Manassas. Those bunnies are so cute. I got out of the car and walked up to the display to see how it was created.
There are up lights along the bike display so we will try to catch it after dark to see how it looks then. Sure would be fun to meet the owners of this display. I wonder if anyone has told them that they are on my blog and folks around the world are now enjoying their Easter Parade of bunnies and white bikes. I wonder why all the bikes are white. What would be the significance of that?

Here's a small bike for a small child, er I mean small bunny..
And here's a momma bunny with her big bike sporting a teeny tiny bike in the bike basket. Can't you just picture baby bunny riding in the basket. What a total hoot!

Things like this are really creative.
Someone should write a little Easter Story about this bunny parade in Manassas. I think a book like this would be a big hit in kindergarten classes. Maybe I need to write it. Let's see. How shall I start this story. Well, of course, with once upon a time in the Commonwealth of Virginia...
Once upon a time in the Commonwealth of Virginia there were these bunnies living on Sudley Road in Manassas, Virginia. The littlest bunny was called Precious because she was so precious and cute. Her Momma was Patty Rabbit and she was married to that dapper male bunny named Peter Rabbit. This family belonged to the Sudley Road clan of Easter Bunnies who discovered that a parade of white bikes was just the thing for their Easter Parade and for an evening spring dance called the Bunny Hop. The only problem was that Precious didn't know how to do the Bunny Hop. Peter and Patty had been so busy riding those white bikes all around Manassas that they didn't take time to teach Precious how to do the Bunny Hop.
Well, that's the beginning. How should the middle and ending go? Anybody got some ideas? Help me write this bunny story by leaving a comment/suggestion here.

That's a cute story, and one I would love to see the whole way through. Can't think of a middle or an end right now but you started it off beautifully. Maybe they painted those bikes white because it was their version of the white 'picket fence' :) Great photos!

Joann: What a neat display with the bunnies and the bikes.

Precious thought if she didn't learn the bunny hop there was no way she could go to the dance. It was really lucky that she had the internet to fall back on. She looked the bunny hop up on the internet and to her surprise found it was a dance from the 1950's. If it has been around that long maybe someone from that generation could help them. There was that nice couple who was always feeding the birds who lived down the road. She knew they had "J" names but just could remeber their names. What could she do?
