Easter Visitors

March 31, 2008 | Leave a Comment

The kids enjoyed the annual visit of the Easter Bunny. As usual, there was plenty of sweets/candy to keep them occupied. Conall wasn’t too interested, although he is developing a taste for ice cream. He turned three a few weeks ago, and enjoyed his birthday cake. He has also taken a few steps unsupported, so I’m sure he’ll be whizzing around in no time.

We spent a quiet Easter Sunday, with Jenn out-doing herself in the kitchen doing her Ballymaloe impression, serving up the traditional baked lamb and assorted goodies. We had the bright idea of sending Orla and Eoghan off with Sue to do an Easter Egg hunt at Justin’s, so we were able to enjoy a lazy afternoon !

With the arrival of Spring in the US, the kids have been busy planting flowers in the garden. I’m not sure if anything will actually grow, but at least it keeps them out in the fresh air. The dogs, too, are outdoors most of the day now; there’s room to walk around in the kitchen once again…

This past Saturday saw the arrival in NY of Mary, Liam, Eimear and Cliodhna. Returning to Ireland from Orlando, they missed their connection at Newark and so had to spend the day in NY. We met up with them at the Winter Garden and had a great time with the kids in the parks along the river. Orla and Eoghan were thrilled to meet their cousins and can’t wait for their next trip to Ireland… Jenn has posted some videos on Youtube.
