Easter Brunch at Ritz-Carlton in Half Moon Bay

It was a glorious day in Half Moon Bay for Easter Brunch. This was our first time having brunch there and it was amazing (better than in SF). I’d say about 80% of the kids were completely freaked out by the Easter Bunny and there were kids crying everywhere. Olivia and Lucas were fine with him, especially when he offered them candy. I noticed that he gave Lucas a peanut butter cup. Both of our kids are allergic to peanuts and other nuts, so I asked them to give them the little eggs, which I assumed were milk chocolate. They each devoured them quickly. Shortly after, both were agitated, so I took Lucas outside to the Easter Egg hunt. Meanwhile, Olivia had booted all over Grace, so it was time to go. Lucas was clearly having a reaction in the car, too. By the time we got home, Lucas had hives all over his body and Olivia had a puffy eye. He booted after his nap, so it was clear something was wrong. We asked Olivia about the candy on the way to urgent care and she said the inside was light brown and “tasted like granola.” Uh oh. Thankfully, they were both okay and some prescription meds cleared it up. Good thing we had their epi pens handy just in case. Leason learned…
