pictures from easter

pictures from a week and a half ago, oops. we had a really nice (but cold) easter sunday. we spent the morning with grandma barb, grandpa bob, and aunt julie and we had a visit from aunt judie and cousins wyatt and ryan. we're excited that ryan will be attending college and playing hockey in Lake Forrest and we might get to see him more often. my three boy cousins are big hockey players, if you look closely you might actually be able to see the scar on ryan's neck where someone skated over his neck. fun. anyway, in the evening we had grandpa ed and grandma kris over, along with aunt liz and her boyfriend sam. the kids enjoyed coloring in their new coloring books and we all had a really nice easter evening.

Wonderful pictures J, you have such a great family. It is great that you all got to hang out together at Easter.
I realize that I don't know your children very well but every time I see pictures of Andie she reminds me of this song by buffett. She seems to have some inner hidden wisdom that only she knows. Well or maybe it's just because she never wears shoes

"Hula Girl at Heart"

She owns a window to the ocean
She has a pipeline to the sky
But earthly creatures rarely notice
When Guardian Angels pass them by

Like a gecko behind a painting
With hidden wisdom to impart
In a world that needs more dancing
She's a hula girl at heart

Photographs show she is lovely
Her bare feet are a work of art
Her fragrance speaks of frangipani
Yes she's still a hula girl at heart

With Her pad and watercolors
Drawing fish and butterflies
Children always seem to conjure
Images they recognize
In the land beside the ocean
Where romantics seem to dwell
Destiny can set in motion
Ripples that turn into swells
She Knows how to face the music
She Knows where the magic starts
In a world that needs more dancing
She's still a hula girl at heart

Songs sing slow
Days zoom by
Time can't keep her
Nor can I

She has worn a wealth of costumes
Hula skirt to wedding gown
Lived in cities walked through jungles
Always sees the sun go down

In this age of teeming tourists
Fellow travelers know her well
The darling of deserted beaches
Hides her wisdom in a shell
Her sensual and easy motion
Seems impossible to chart
In a world that needs more dancing
