Family In Town News

My brother and kids (minus one niece who away at Emerson College) came into town for 11 days.  They have come the last three years to ski.  We live super close to four great resorts and always when they come, it is a great time.
The crew (minus one nephew) who went skiing.  My poor 16 year old nephew banged up his knee on the 2nd day here and he is a star on his track team at home (and now is track season), so, he decided he better not ski the rest of the time.  Instead, Dentist husband removed his wisdom teeth.  Not much of a Spring break for him but I have to say, he was very good natured about the whole thing.  
Dying Easter eggs.  Since eggs were only 59 cents a dozen, everyone dyed 12.  It was chaos-organized chaos but chaos none the less.
Easter morning.  You can't really tell in this picture, but my skirt is the same fabric as my girls--all purchased from Hannah Andersson.
The whole crew (my parents came into town for five days) on Easter Sunday.
So, now everyone is gone and my house feels very empty.  I love having visitors.

Oh and for you celiacs (three of my brother's kids have it) out there, my favorite local Mexican restaurant, Barbacoa is gluten free with the exception of their tortillas.  Check out their web-site, pretty cool.

What fun. 12 eggs each? My kids were lucky they got 4 each. Looks like you guys had a great time. :)

Looks like lots of fun! I love the big eggs behind you. So glad to add another gluten-free restaurant to our list. Thanks!

Ditto on the giant eggs- did you make them or by any chance can some of the rest of us get a hold of them too?

I bought the eggs at Tai Pan Trading Company about two weeks ago.
