Easter & more visits 

The morning Grandmother Jean left, my sister, "tante", and brother Jeff flew in the same evening. I am very touched that they made the haul, Jeff with his busy schedule and expecting wife and Allyson, all the way from Africa. We had a relaxing Easter weekend. The Easter bunny came leaving treats for all, even the big kids. Davis received lots of goodies and for the first time candy. He still isn't into the candy. He enjoyed the little toys more. We cooked a simple brunch of quiche, roasted potatoes, berry fruit salad and monkey bread. Ben and Lyndsay joined us and kept Davis entertained with his Easter happy, water guns. Uncle Jeff kept Davis busy painting Easter eggs while Allyson and I cooked. Grace was sleeping most the time in her bouncer or on the shoulder of someone. Jeff left Easter evening to head back to Nor Cal and Tante stayed on for another week. She so easily joined in our activities, music, swim etc. She cooked for us which included lessons for Davis in granola and guacamole cooking. She was even so gracious as to help with Davis potty training. Yes, came all the way from Africa to wipe pee off the floor. I am so thankful for her time here with us and traveling to see us from so far. It was sad seeing her go Saturday morning. We are hoping the tide brings her back stateside despite her plans to stay abroad longer. Davis had so much fun playing with her especially "safari" outside and Grace could have slept on her for days.
