....a day late. We had an extremely pleasant weekend around Casa Swank. Saturday we visited Louisville for an Easter egg hunt at my dad's house; in addition to my own two girls, Dad's daughter (I may not have mentioned it, but I have a sister who's four-going-on-five) and my nephews, there were four or five other toddlers running around picking up eggs. Between that and dinner at my mom's, we stopped by Bowman Field (LOU) to watch the airplanes take off. We'd just intended to drive through the parking lot for a closer look at the aircraft parked on the tarmac, but Cecilia wanted an even closer look, so we got out and spent a very pleasant hour in the beautiful sunshine. We then enjoyed a delicious dinner at my mom's, which was cut short, unfortunately, by a minor accident that sent my brother to the Immediate Care Center for a couple of stitches; fortunately, it wasn't too serious and he's fine now.
Sunday morning, of course, the girls picked up eggs the Easter Bunny (*cough*me*cough*) had hidden around the family room and loaded up on sugar. After that, we put the girls in dresses my lovely and talented wife made for the occasion and we attended services at the church where my wife sings in the choir. After brunch, I got my Easter present: A copy of the PS2 fighting game Dead or Alive 2 Hardcore. (Ironically, although I could buy DVDs with the end of Lent, the electronics stores were all closed...). Despite the volumes of sugar they consumed (not too much, really, under the circumstances), the girls were incredibly good and pleasant for the most part. I made roast leg of lamb, asparagus and brown rice for dinner, and rounded out the evening with a little DOA2 session. Obviously, I wasn't online too much over the weekend, which was also nice, for a change. All in all, it was an extraordinarily pleasant weekend.
