Despite months of grim weather, this past weekend was lovely and it made us all optimistic that spring is coming, as it always does miraculously but never soon enough. The kids had Good Friday off so we had a nice relaxing weekend. GM was traveling to Argentina on Saturday so we had Easter lunch on Saturday. Eggs got dyed, lamb was barbecued, candy hidden and the weekend ended with the traditional Easter three course fondue extravaganza at an overpriced local restaurant.
This year we celebrated a milestone of sorts. There was no Easter egg hunt. There was loose talk of the kids hiding eggs for the adults but like a lot of things around here only Georgie wants to do it and we cant always cater to Georgie:) I did however hide the kid’s candy. I asked them to improvise baskets as I couldn’t find anyone’s except Georgie’s. Find the telling vessels that were offered up for the candy below.
Georgie had the fuzzy bunny and Henry used a vintage suede backpack from my college days in the early 80’s. Owen used both his beloved Yankee cap and endocrinologist’s office swag, a pancreas coffee mug. Cal used a blue jack o lantern, enuf said.
