The hay ride at the Buchinsky's farm while the eggs were hidden was a big thrill (except that S fell asleep on it). It was great because for 3 hours the kids roamed freely, with no concern of wandering into the road, "stranger danger", or anything of the other current maladies plaguing my parenting. (Our TJ grocery bags serve for everything--I highly reccomend buying several and just leaving the stash in your trunk...I need more!)
The hunt at Gma's house was great, because for kids, quantity always wins out over quality--and it was a cold, cold hunt putting the quality up for question. Although, the quality of the loot there was Cadbury Bunny certified.
Next year I think we are going to rearrange our Easter priorities, but this year, the kids had one egg-stravagant (you knew it was coming!) Easter season!

We also learned why there aren't very many women in politics--it turns out it is to hard to put make-up on 2 faces! Oh, now I understand--I always thought it was chauvanism.
But then the Bluegrass band came out and it was fantastic! Cloggers and flatfooters sprung up from the their seats and it was a free-for-all. Regrettably we couldn't stay long for the band, because claustrophobia had set in and we had expended most of our coping skills on the gospel band. We headed off to our cabin and drove the parkway in the miserable rain, with the engine light on, hoping to not get lost. The cabin was great, with some eccentricities of its own...Amy turned out to be the brave one (but not brave enough to sleep up there!).

Oh to have a partner who makes those mistakes...So thanks for the flowers, Jacky!
The other funny note, is that again, after mulling over the "mistake", we laughed because he replied, "The worst part about it is that I have been planning this all week!"
