We got up and at them Saturday AM and headed for the park. Luke & Daddy had found some sidewalk chalk the day before, so Luke commissioned some work from Mommy. Here is probably saying "Mommy draw diamond right here." (we aren't sure where he got "diamond")
...After nap time, we headed north on Route 17 to Paramus to visit the Baldonados! (and the Swedloffs!) While Luke was really excited to spend time with young Amelia Swedloff, he made sure to spend some QT with Dr. B
When he woke up on Sunday, Mommy & Daddy sent him off in search of his basket from the Easter Bunny. He was quite excited
And he squealed with delight at the Legos from the Minnesotan contingent. I mean, from THE EASTER BUNNY. (again, the cheeks!)
....and 30 minutes later, this was the scene. SUGAR CRASH!
And what is sure to be a New Easter Tradition was born: The Easter Matzo Brei (many thanks to Auntie Lisa for sharing her dad's recipe!)
Sugar crash passed and breakfast eaten, we headed out for Liberty State Park's massive waterfront playground. Luke was sure to bring his "camera"
And finally, you can't really see them here, but some older kids had a bubble gun and were blowing thousands of bubbles around the playground. For Luke, this, coupled with the whole ladybug experience, made for an Easter Miracle! He's the goofball to the left of the frame
Next up: the dyeing of the eggs.
