Stardate 64268.12 - Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday we enjoyed Chocolate Pancakes for breakfast and some family fun time playing around.

The day got hotter and hotter and I was overheating while playing hide/find the eggs in the back yard with the kids.

We then went over to Cheryl's Grandmother's place in Sea Bright for Easter lunch with Cheryl's parents.

We took a stroll over to the beach after eating where the ocean breeze was refreshing.

Kate had a blast and kept running off down the beach. Cheryl managed to get her to sit still for a couple of pictures.

I really like this shot of Kate wandering away down an empty beach.


Stardate 64268.09 - Easter Saturday

On Easter Saturday we got up early and drove to the beach house. From there we went over to Sea Bright for the Easter Parade and Egg Hunt. It was foggy and cool, which didn't exactly match our attire.

Our stroller took 3rd place in the stroller competition (competition was light). The parade part wasn't too bad (although the place was packed and losing sight of Loren multiple times in the crowd wasn't a great feeling). The egg hunt, however, was not fun. The horde of parents and kids swept across the beach with such ravenous greed that Loren and Kate and me and Cheryl (who were near the back, having never participated and didn't know where to prestage) got a grand total of 1 egg. That's right, Loren got a single egg out of supposedly 1,500 on the little kids' side of the beach. I saw kids with baskets overflowing, and poor Loren got a single egg.

Luckily, she was pretty excited about her one egg, and another little girl who had about 20 came up and gave Loren 8 of her eggs. So that was pretty darn nice and Loren got a few more eggs.

Stardate 64261.05 - Good Friday

Cheryl had Friday off and daycare was closed so she spent the day with the girls while I was at work.

They went over to Central Park and spent some time in the Children's Zoo, which is one of Loren's favorite places.

They then had a picnic lunch in the park.

They also visited one of the playgrounds before heading back home.
