One Family, Two Coasts

It’s probably too late to be posting Easter photos, but I just can’t resist bunny ears. We had such a nice Easter in the city! Both boys and assorted friends joined us and Angie and her family made the trek in from Bonxville. And Teri came all the way uptown from Brooklyn to round out our group to an even dozen. We worshipped at Redeemer Presbyterian on the UWS, where the line was a block long to enter the service.

Line up L to R: Chris, Teri, Daniel, Peter and Taylor. Nicole and Christine are in front.

After the service, we all walked down to Cafe Arte for brunch. We felt so blessed to spend Easter with so many of our favorite friends and family members.

The sun barely came out while we were in the city this trip, but I did get this photo late in the afternoon on Easter Sunday that reminded me of how much I love where we live there:

It took us two days to get home. All the bad juju from the UAL/Continental merger seems to have descended upon us. We’ve had cancellations in Chicago, LA and NYC now. I hope that fulfills our quota. Our luck may be turning, because just as they announced there would be no food for purchase on our rescheduled flight to LA the next day, our name was called and we were given our first biz class upgrade in over a year.

I don't know which is sexier, my husband or those business class boarding passes.

We arrived home to ridiculous animals and ginormous projects. We are replacing the entire front lawn in anticipation of Alexandra’s upcoming wedding. Multiple backhoes, lots of noise and consternation and every single animal we own daily caked in dirt. So glad we came home!

A few days after we returned to So Cal, Tina brought Caleigh up for the weekend to meet her great-grandmother. It was just the two of them since John had taken the two older girls for a skiing vacation in Utah. We all had a lot of fun convincing Caleigh that sleep is a good thing.

I think sleep deprivation agrees with them

    I am so blessed to have five Greats now. The newest is just as adorable as the previous four are. So great to have three on my side of the USA. Nice to have the SB couple here for a spell , also.

    Actually very nice to see the Easter photos well after the event, as it helps perserve the memories of a wonderful time in the city. And yes, I must agree, it is not possible to pass out just one “Adorable Award” among those worthy contenders.
