Easter 2010


In April Oliver's Uncle Ian, and his cousins Eamonn and Molly drove down from Canada for Easter. Easter weekend was unusually warm, and we all spent a lot of time outside enjoying the mild weather. This was one of the first times Ollie had been on the swing since the snow melted, and he was loving it. Higher! Faster! More!

We had a belated birthday celebration for Molly, who turned six in March. Here she is with cousin Mariah. And here are a few Easter eggs I decorated.

On Easter Sunday there were several egg hunts. First we had one for the kids at Caitlin and Jamie's house. Then the kids had fun hiding eggs for the adults. And finally we "hid" eggs at our house especially for Eliza and Oliver. We put Ollie in his gait trainer, and we even got him to hold on to his Easter basket just long enough for me to snap a couple of cute pictures.

Sean with his new iPad Oliver's uncle Sean is very much a tech gadget early-adopter kind of guy. He had pre-ordered an Apple iPad and was one of the first to get his hands on one. Here he is showing it off… and I have to admit, it was a beautiful thing to hold and use. We think we want to get one for Oliver, and are thinking of buying this one off of him when he upgrades - any day now!
