Easter Weekend

I’m posting this a little late (ha) but I wanted to share some pictures from Easter weekend.

On Holy Thursday, Jacinta made her first foray into the pool this year, with Omi’s help.

Since we didn’t come prepared with swimsuits, Veronica wore an old one that belonged to my sister Shauna. It’s hard to see with the vest, but with her blonde wavy hair she could have been Shauna.

Jacinta used the floaty suit that my parents always have on hand for the girls. They are always prepared.

Jacinta was pretty interested in the water.

Though not very interested in going in the water.

And pretty pleased with herself. But that’s no different from any other day.

Veronica preferred to be on a raft.

If she fell in, she made a quick exit. It was still a bit cold.

“I have a crazy sister.”

Veronica was okay with the inner tubes, too.

Until the vest started to squash her face.

“Help me.”

Cousin Lukas to the rescue!

Jakob preferred his perch outside the pool, though he wasn’t opposed to putting things in it.

Since my aunt and uncle and cousins and grandpa were in town, Holy Saturday night was Wing Night. Unfortunately I forgot my camera so I won’t be able to post pictures of the epic tastiness to make you jealous.

But feel free to be jealous of Veronica’s stomach bug which kept her up puking for half the night.

Easter morning, she felt much better. She had been given new life.

Determined not to waste it, she decided to become a concert pianist a la Stevie Wonder. Complete with glasses. Minus the blindness.

Lots of goofy moments.

 

Apr 9 2012 030

And some quiet moments.

 

Apr 9 2012 031

Video games.

 

Apr 9 2012 032

Books.

 

Apr 9 2012 033

Babies.

 

Apr 9 2012 036

Lots of babies.

There was even a game of Star Wars. Veronica was the director and also played Luke. Erik was Darth Vader. Epic lightsaber battle ensued.

Jacinta stayed out of the game. She preferred to experiment with fashion accessories.

It was great having everyone in town. And thanks to my uncle and dad, the door handle of our Subaru AND the A/C in our van is fixed. Yay! Just in time for the heat.

Can’t wait to see everyone again. When they move back here. You are moving back…right???
