For the first time in several years Lloyd and I stayed home at Easter and were able to share it with some of the kids and grands. It was a beautiful day - sunny and dry and the snow melted just in time to make egg hunts workable.
Sara hosted the Easter dinner and it was a huge success - so much fun. The kids played on their own on the trampoline, in the back yard, and on the Wii, leaving just the two 2-year olds needing our attention. There were four of our kids with their spouses and 8 children so it was a nice little gathering. Everyone brought something - ham, baked beans, scalloped potatoes, corn, taco salad, vegetable tray, and Sara made Death by Chocolate for dessert.
Rob's wife, Cindy, told us of this conversation she had this morning with 6-year old Brooklyn:
B: Is there really a magic rabbit who brings all this candy to us or do you do it?
C: What do you think?
B: I think you do it.
C: That's right.
B: I thought so. Does Daddy know?
C: I'm not sure. Should we ask him?
B: No. I don't want to tell him.
So it appears that 38-year old Rob is the only Easter bunny believer in their family! What a sweet little girl for not wanting to spoil her father's fun.
Here's some shots from this evening. The little Holland lop-eared bunny is a pet of Charlie, Max and Elly. Their mom, Sara, featured her in her bunny portraits event at her photo studio last week. She's a sweet little thing who seems to love all the attention.
Sure hope the rest of you had a great Easter.
