We were away for the Easter weekend and had a great time, although we ended up all getting sick by Sunday.

Friday morning, the girls and I went into NYC to the American Girl Store with their Aunt and Grandmother. We shopped and had lunch and had a grand old time. Julia brought her Kaya doll, and Emily bought a Samantha doll while there as an early birthday present. The girls had a blast being pampered and having lunch with their dolls. The train ride was lots of fun, and they also enjoyed the NYC subway ride. Emily wanted to walk a few steps ahead and stand a few steps apart on the subway, pretending to be a commuter. She felt so grown up! After our American Girl day, we walked by Rockefeller Center and saw the season's last ice skaters. What a great day!

The boys all went hiking while we were in the city. They took ropes and made stream crossings, climbed boulders and had grand adventures.

The weekend was a whirlwind of fun and food--pretty typical for this crew!
