Easter in Wyomissing
Sal, Kate, Nico and Leo invited us to spend the Easter weekend in Wyomissing, including the extended family's Easter Dinner.
We dropped off Buddy at Weeping Willow kennel just before 9 and headed north.
Lyd drove from Salisbury to Dover as I hate driving in the 30 mph, traffic-light laden environment.
I took over the wheel at Dover as Lyd hates drving the high speed, heavy traffic interstates.
We pulled in to their driveway at 1230.
Kate had coldcuts for lunch and we spent the afternoon playing with Dominic and Leo, who now sits up unaided.
Sal grilled veggies and salmon for dinner and we continued with quality time until the boys, and their grandmother, went to bed.|
Sunday morning, we assembled Nico's Easter Basket and hid it in a kitchen cabinet. A string lead from Nico's bedroom door, meandering around the house to the hiding place. Easter eggs were secured along the way. He had a lot of fun searching. Family and food started arriving at 2 and by dinner time, at 3, there were over 20 family members in the house. Ham and lamb and a load of side dishes crowded the tables in the kitchen and dining room. We supplied a double quantity of Sister Cities Slaw, as requested, as our contribution. After dinner, we enjoyed family time until the boys, having had no naps, finally gave up and went to bed.
Monday morning, we were up a little after 6 and slipped out of the house before 7. As predicted, the traffic was heavier than it usually is when we travel on Sundays. The last five miles of the Blue Route (I-476) had us down around 40 mph. Still, we picked up Buddy at the kennel and made it home in a total of 4 hours. Sal, Kate and the boys will come down for a visit the 1st weekend in May.
