In the middle of all the hopping around this week, we grabbed enough pictures to make some fun Easter collages. Some of the pics are on-the-fly-purse-camera snapshots, some were taken with a cell phone, some are from a friend, and a few were taken with the big camera, but hey you take whatever works when you're chasing kids and bunnies. The weekend before Easter, we colored four dozen eggs and hid and hunted for over a hundred plastic eggs with the cousins (yeah I guess we subscribe to the "go big or go home" theory): (Ro pink skirt, Ree blue) On Friday, we got the best Easter present of all, a massive backyard playstructure from Craigslist. Ro and Ree are ecstatic (and so are all the neighborhood kids). That behemoth took all day and half the night to take apart, move, and reassemble. But TubaDad was determined to have it up and ready for Easter weekend, and he did it (with some awesome help from my dad and our neighbor). TubaDad, you're a total rock star!: Saturday we went to a super-cool neighborhood Easter party and egg hunt: (Ro pink hairbow and shoes, Ree yellow hairbow and shoes) And on Easter Sunday we had fun baskets and took my folks out to a fancy brunch. I should probably admit that we almost screwed up royally on the baskets. We were trying to wait as late as possible to assemble them on Saturday night, because little Ree kept running downstairs and surprising us, and then we plumb forgot and went to bed without doing them!! Thank heavens I remembered before we both passed out completely, and we heaved ourselves out of bed and ran downstairs to hastily assemble them. Whew: (Ree in pink tights, Ro in striped leggings) Happy Easter everyone!
