I think this Easter Sunday might have been one of the best yet. We had a photo taken with my family for the first time in 3 years – entirely too long. You’ll see my brother Kevin (and my parents) in the pic below and can read about him here (in my most popular blog post ever!).
I’m a little partial to this photo too! My kids are getting so huge.
After Easter, we knew we would need a little time away. We had been planning and dreaming about this excursion for a while. Brian and I headed to Yorktown for one day and then north to the big city. We spent our entire first day in Ikea. A dream come true. Freedom to roam the store with no kids, no place to be and some cashola in the pocket to spend. The kids headed out for fun with their grandparents. We all had a blast to say the least.
Here’s a recap in pictures of our mini-vacay. It was wonderful and relaxing. I don’t remember the last time I walked that much. I always love when Brian and I are able to get away by ourselves. I know I’m patting myself on the back, but I really love the featured image for this post. I took it myself. I couldn’t believe how beautifully the flowers framed the door. The view from the porch was breathtaking and soothing all at the same time. I couldn’t have asked for a better trip. Like I said, everybody needs a little time away.
Before we headed out from the big city, we took time to stop in at AMC and see Blue Like Jazz. As I told you yesterday, I’ll be posting my review later in the week. Let’s just say I wasn’t disappointed.
Since we’ve been back, we have had company and completely rearranged our house – again! Things are almost back to normal around here and you’ll be hearing more from me soon.
Mt. Vernon is a great place to visit. Remember, everybody needs a little time away.
