Celebrating Easter
Day before--earnest egg dying.

Rachel and Gwen were leaving on Saturday, so the amazing Kender-tradition
 scavenger hunt was held early Saturday morning.
sending kids scurrying from one place to another
each finding their own pictures and mysterious clues
leading to their Easter gifts.
(great job Easter Bunny!)
And all this done in the half hour before Toby and I took Rachel and Gwen to the airport to travel back to Panama.  Perfect send-off for them after a warm and wonderful week.

We got in a day at Disneyland with the M's, Jess, Rachel and Gwen--
crowded because it was school vacation week
but under the wise leadership of Jess, who knows Disneyland from many visits,
and a lot of
we braved the crowds and got on a lot of rides (waiting for the fun to start here).
Helpful for Toby (maybe more for the kids) was a wheelchair
and eating ice cream Sundaes.

Rachel and Gwen Arrive!
for a wonderful week-long visit.
First stop--the Page Kenders, amazing to watch their new 3-D TV.
Then one of many grandkid spend-overs--first at our house with the usual morning pancakes and Lego movie.
Present opening in our backyard.
