132D WING, Iowa -- The 132d Wing (132WG), Des Moines, Iowa hosted its annual Easter Celebration outside of the Dining Facility of the 132WG on Saturday, April 11, 2015.

Members of the 132WG and their families participated in a variety of activities including face painting, crafts, bounce houses, photos with the Easter Bunny and an Easter egg hunt.

Kids of all ages enjoyed playing with their friends and family and having fun at the event, which was presented by the Family Readiness Group and the Wingman Support Team.  When the time came, the Easter egg hunt began.  Three age groups were sent at different times to dash for as many eggs and toys they could find and their baskets could carry.

In a matter of minutes, each child had hopped their way to a basket full of treasure: toys, games, candies and some healthier treats too.  Smiles were all around, and thanks were given to the Easter Bunny and his helpers for making the day such a success.  Until next year Easter Bunny, take care!
