We had fun doing our Easter egg coloring today. Here are some pictures:

While we were at the Adventure Science Center, the kids ran into New2 meteorologist Jeff Ray, who was teaching about tornado safety. He spent a lot of time with the three of them, and a brief clip of an interview with Lauren was on the 10:00 news tonight. I did tape it, but I’ve only got it on VHS right now (Tivo was broken). I’m hoping to get it converted. (And yes, the Windows sticker shows up beautifully on the TV clip). Here are some pictures of the event while it was happening:
We had lots of family that we hadn’t seen in a long time, so the wedding reception was really a great time. The kids had a ball — they were at a table with their cousins Amanda, Nicholas and Matthew with no adults, and they were loving it!!
Interestingly enough, by far and away the best pictures on the camera were the ones that Lauren took. She’s quite the photographer. These are hers (except for the picture of her, which I’m pretty sure Jake took). Great job, Lauren!!
The wedding was beautiful and everything went perfectly. The kids were fascinated by the whole thing. The priest, who signed the whole ceremony, did a wonderful job and gave a really moving homily. The whole thing was incredibly well done. Dan himself signed the first two readings and the petitions and it was really incredible.
We haven’t had a bonfire in the back yard since summer, so it was really fun to be able to do it again. The fire started up right away, and it was roaring pretty quickly. We had gone to our favorite Greek restaurant for dinner, and the kids wanted to hear stories about the ancient Greeks over the fire. We also made s’mores (“but I haven’t had any yet”). It doesn’t get much better than this.
Lauren had her program tonight. It was a very nice one about making the correct choices in life. The kids were really good singers, I was surprised. I was also very surprised to see that Lauren had TWO different speaking parts (most kids had none). She had told me she had one, but I didn’t know she had two.
