You can hide Easter eggs at the house again this year, then snap the same photos of your underwhelmed children pretending they don’t know all of your secret spots. Instead of that usual tradition, take the family out to a local Orange County park and start a thrilling new tradition. Entertainment, excitement, community involvement and, of course, eggs await parents and children of all ages.
