  • We cover a lot of Easter egg hunts, and trying to find something visually different from previous years can be a challenge. When I saw these little guys, I knew I got what I had been looking for. Twin brothers Lincoln, left, and Jackson Karlovsky, 6, center, and their younger brother, Finnegan, 4, peer out the windows of an upper level suite overlooking the Kane County Cougars' ball field filled with plastic eggs. The trio, also joined by sister, Jelena, 4, all wore bunny ears while attending the ball club's breakfast with the Easter Bunny the day before the holiday. The Karlovsky family of Algonquin are big baseball fans and have a family suite at the Geneva ball park. This image was published in the Perspective column in the print edition.
