Easter Weekend: Random Pictures and Ramblings

Gosh, where have the days gone? I'm finding myself online less...and less. It's a bit intentional and a bit unintentional. I'm really trying to let this move deeply sink in. Not sure if that makes sense, but it's been hard for me to really accept that we actually live in NJ. That we have actually moved, that our house is actually for sale. Strange, but true. I'm trying to embrace it all....I think. I'll keep you posted ;)

We took a quick trip back home....staying with my parents for a couple of days and then on to Syracuse for Easter with my brother/family. I only managed to take a few random pictures.
A really cool fact....my girlfriends parents grew up in our current town. I chatted with her mom about the best grocery stores and about the area. Very helpful, indeed.

Great grandma turned 96 a few days earlier. We surprised her with a visit.
Great Uncle Dick and Grandma amused us with some stilt walking.
They made these stilts when they were children....they are still kept in Great Grandma's garage.

Our traditional Easter egg hunt at Uncle Robbie's and Aunt Kathy's.
The picture is blurry....but there is a duck couple in the photo. They arrive at my parent's pool each spring. Year after year. I love 'em.   It was a quick trip....so many pictures not taken. I had a nice lunch with my oldest girlfriends while G and the boys visited with some other friends. Fast paced and bittersweet. We knew it would come to an end soon....the boys were SO sad leaving. I'm thankful that as soon as we crossed the NJ border they started saying "I kinda like our home in NJ." "I'm sad and happy at the same time". Just what I was thinking.

So glad you were able to make it back for Easter! Something to being with family and just by doing that it actually really helps the whole move soak in just a bit more. I guess that last comment could be summed up in one word...bittersweet. Once again...glad you had this time, and glad to see all your smiling faces.

Glad you got to make that trip back home. I am sure great g'ma was especially excited to see y'all and your visit was a great birthday present for her. Looks like you have some real characters in your family...people walking on stilts. I would have been a nervous wreck watching them do that.

Maybe taking short trips back to NY every few months will make the transition easier and leaving will be easier each time.

Looks like a nice time for Easter.

I've been thinking of you a lot and meaning to email. I am right with you on the checklist dilemma. Today I am sick and actually googled the charter schools in the city.
Maybe I'll try to call some time - if I can find a quiet moment.
