Happy Easter! 
I had not planned on doing anything fancy for Easter.  We haven't the past few years and the year before that the kids just got their swim suites in their Easter basket.  They don't even have Easter baskets.  The ones we had ended up breaking because we really don't have space to keep stuff like that and it stay in one piece.  I have had intentions the past year or so to make felt Easter baskets, just never get around to doing it.  Anyway... Saturday Jack asked if we were going to have an egg hunt.  I had not planned on it, but told him he would have to wait till Sunday to find out.  After the kids went to bed Saturday night I headed out to Walgreen's to purchase plastic eggs and create some kind of egg hunt in the apartment for when they woke up Easter morning.  Notice they had to use their Candy Corn Halloween bags to hunt their eggs with.

 Freddy T. had to get Jack's "big" egg off the top of the mirror, Jack could not reach it himself.

 Lillie woke up about an hour after the boys so the fun of an egg hunt was over.  She didn't seem real interested.  She just sat in the floor and let the boys bring her all the eggs that belonged to her.

They had a good time.  

We headed to church and had a wonderful Easter service at The Gallery.

Afterwards we ate lunch in Madison Square Park and ran into our friends, the Chockley's, so we joined them.  The kids had fun playing.  Afterwards it was a pretty typical Sunday afternoon.  The kids were worn out from the weekend and all took a nap, myself included.  

Here are a few shots of the kids helping take down and store the Gallery Kid area.  It has to be set up and torn down each week.  

Jack is moving the gates, they are pretty heavy. 
 Elliott is hauling a mat.  Look behind him you can see Lillies head....
 Here is her contribution.  Hanging on and going for a ride!
 Lillie and her buddy Sadie.

I enjoyed seeing the children in their Easter outfits. I was also glad to be able to pull the old blog up. It looked like a beautiful day in NY and the family picture was so good, all of them were. Lillie was actually smiling normal. Thanks for sharing your Easter. We missed you not being here with us. We could have a big egg hunt with all the children we have now. Love to all, Great Gran
