Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! Dylan celebrated by getting as close to heaven as he could climb.

We tried to meet our in-laws but went to the wrong church. Any Easter service is better than none. Can I get an amen?

Aroma therapy

Ava: "I love the smell of this place." Spoken like true urban kids. Trying out the new Westlake Park play structure.

What Saturdays are for

Lovely Saturday: final school visit for Ava, errands, and leisurely afternoon of story time, trains, and dress up.
I'm so accustomed to being on the run on weekends that I feel guilty sometimes when I let go of the schedule or the "should dos'" and just enjoy being with everyone without a task list.
Turns out when I do, the kids enjoy it too. Must remember to do this actively instead of by default. This article backs up my thinking: The Benefits of Family Downtime. Now go forth and do nothing!
