Good morning. I'm Mary Louise Kelly.

Here's a fact you might not have known. You cannot fit 20,000 plastic eggs, a pilot and two passengers into a helicopter cabin. That's why the helicopter dropping eggs for the Elevate Life Church's Easter egg hunt had to make three trips. Thousands of people turned out for the egg hunt in Orange Park, Florida. The pastor says he's not sure they'll repeat the event, adding, right now, I don't even want to think about another egg.
