Easter weekend

Oh rare and glorious day - both kids are napping at the same time... and I will use this rare and glorious moment to download some pictures from our picnic in the park today and post them here for you. That's how much I love you, dear readers all!
I had this notion to take Easter pictures of the kids in this meadow of buttercups (a scant 10-15 minute walk from our house - it's near the big artificial lake), but I didn't have the energy to try to wrangle Valerie into a pretty dress. I don't think I'll ever be able to match the over-the-top adorableness of Valerie's first Easter pictures but I'm still glad we went. Valerie was happy just sitting in the grass looking at all the flowers.
Here (above), she wanted me to sing "We Thank You God" (what we usually sing for Grace before meals), adding many more verses thanking God for pretty much everything I could think of - the flower and trees, birds and sunshine, etc. etc. That's why she's clapping, too (she always claps after we sing).
Gabriel kept trying to eat the flowers.
Happy Easter, everybody!
