Happy Easter, Everyone!

And, Happy Sunday to those of us who don't celebrate Easter. :)

We have had an eventful day. We had the WORST brunch at the Fountain (inside the Fairmont) with Dave's mom and family this morning. It was ridiculously expensive and the food was not very impressive at all. Additionally, they charged us for Jayden (who was supposed to be free) and "forgot" to charge us for the drinks (which you would EXPECT to be free)! Oh well, at least we only do this brunch thing a couple of times a year. We just won't be going there EVER again! Although, they had a crème brulée on the dessert table that was SOO GOOD! I like crème brulée. :)

Immediately following brunch (which lasted until 12:30) we journeyed on to Bonfante Gardens (now known as Gilroy Gardens) and had a marvelous time. We enjoyed the rides and the games in fine weather. They had a scavenger hunt for the kids that was fun. Jayden liked getting the little toys and seeds they were passing out. I enjoyed following the map to get to the little tables. It was fun. Eliana had a good time on the rides. Dave was worried that she was too little to have fun, but she was smiling at every turn and even asked to go on some rides. The biggest hit of the day, though, was at the midway games. They had one game that was giving away GIANT (and do I mean BIG) bouncy balls (I think they are supposed to be basketballs colored in the colors of the favorite NBA teams). We got a dark blue and black ball that says San Antonio on it. It must be at least 2 feet in diameter! I expect we will have a lot of fun playing with it!

Hope you are all enjoying your special Sunday.

Until next time, au revoir.

Sorry about the bad brunch, but Bonfante Gardens sounds like it was great!

Congratulations on Jayden's big steps toward being potty trained - that's great! So cool that Ellie is interested, too. I am hoping that The Bug will train much earlier than Sweet Pea, too, and without so much drama or difficulty. But, we'll see.

If Jayden likes Thomas the Train, I've got some new undies that he can have... Sweet Pea picked them out at the store and then never wanted to wear them once she saw the funny little "pocket" in the front. ha ha!
