Happy Belated Easter. I have been away from the computer because we spent Easter weekend in Upstate New York with Kevin's family. A good time was had by all. There was egg-coloring, egg hunting, baskets full of candy and toys, cousins to play with, a birthday party, lots of good food, and three cakes. One day for breakfast, there were pancakes and ice cream cake. Needless to say, we all, especially Daphne, had a great time. And somehow, I managed to LOSE a pound while I was there. Incredible.
The weather wasn't great, but that was OK.
Easter morning was foggy, but eventually the sun came out.
The trip to NY was kinda last-minute. We had bought tickets to take Daphne to the circus on Easter afternoon as a surprise, and thought we'd just have to skip it because of the trip, but on the way home Sunday, we realized that we could get there just in time if we went directly to the Patriot Center without going home first. Daphne didn't know anything about it. As we got close, we told her that our GPS must be broken, and that it was taking us the wrong way. We stopped at the arena and went to Will Call "to ask for directions." Daphne was pretty surprised when we were handed three tickets and ended up at the Greatest Show on Earth. *
She chose a tiger snow-cone cup as her souvenir. It was eleven dollars. ELEVEN DOLLARS! But she was happy. After the circus, we found a nearby kabob place for dinner and didn't get home until after 9:00. It was a long, exhausting day, but it was worth it.
On a serious note, my Uncle Danny was in a very bad accident over the weekend. Here is what's left of the car:
OK...I better get off my soap box and get back to Laundry Mountain. I hope you had a safe and happy Easter Weekend.
Lots of pictures from our trip on flickr if you wanna see...
* This is debatable. It had its moments, but I've seen greater.
