posted 04/09/13 - Here's my annual Easter entry, a little late. I've been attending this party for over a decade now ever since I moved back to CA, and I've included 5 of those years on this blog. Without children of our own and family so far away, I observe very few traditions, so this is very special for me. The real memories are in all the pictures I don't post: Andy's awe the first time he came with me when we began dating; kids who struggle with the milestone question of "Am I too old to hunt for eggs?"; the velcro-egg hider who gave us Icelandic ice cubes as a wedding present; Andy's mom's tinkly laugh as she participated in the beer hunt that follows the egg hunt; the wide-eyed mixed reactions of friends who came as my guests; the waffle-maker who didn't make waffles; and older ladies who progress from canes, to walkers, to wheelchairs, to memories.
