CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Children in a Cedar Rapids hospital got a special Easter Sunday surprise.

The Easter Bunny and McGruff "the crime dog" visited pediatric patients Easter morning at St. Luke's Hospital in Cedar Rapids.

The Linn County Sheriff's Office teamed up with the Easter Bunny Foundation again this year in hopes of bringing an enjoyable Easter to kids in the hospital.

Each child got a personal visit from the Easter Bunny along with their own little stuffed bunny.

"It just makes their time away from home over the holiday a little more enjoyable since they can't be home with family and friends," said Linn County Sheriff Brian Gardner.

Gardner says they've been doing visiting patients for several years - bringing smiles to the kids and their parents
