Easter Egg Hunt

Yes, it is that time of year again where little ones run around like chickens with their heads cut off in search of plastic eggs in parks. We certainly would not miss the opportunity to join in and act like fools and get something for free, especially when the Easter Egg Hunt is right down from our house.

On Saturday Daniel and I went to our town's Easter Egg Hunt. Though they did not have Easter eggs, they did place candy on top of the sand and let the kids run wild. I do have to say that they did a great job and broke the "hunt" up by age groups so it wasn't that bad.
Yes, it was a bit chilly for an Easter Egg Hunt.

Daniel missed out on grabbing one of the four plastic Easter eggs that they placed in the sand by a second as you can see.....

The "Hunt" was held at our local lake, thus the sandy beach.


He ran and grabbed and had a great time as you can see....

His "Hunt finds"

He even went and took one chocolate egg out of the Easter Bunny's basket and stood for a picture.....



And since one "bunny sighting" is never enough (and we all know how bunnies are) we went to a "Meet the Bunny" event in our old town in the afternoon. Like last year Daniel went right up to the bunny and sat on her lap.

And yes, as Daniel pointed out to me, the first bunny we saw was a "boy bunny" since he had a vest on and the second one was a "girl bunny" since she carried a carrot. (I know....)


All and all a good day was had. Happy Easter!!

Bagpipers and Fire Engines = St. Patrick's Day Parade

What else would it be??

As Spring might, and that is a big might, have sprung here we decided to take advantage of a beautiful Saturday and celebrate St. Patrick's Day a bit early by going to the St. Patrick's Day parade in Hoboken, NJ.

Like last you we took the Light Rail in (only a nine minute ride with free parking) and this time we got on the right train. Last year we did not and it was a big mess. Anyway, off we went to celebrate with the other "Irish" and celebrate we did.


Getting off the Light Rail


Bag Pipers - which were Daniel's favorite. That's my Irish Boy!!

Despite being a bit loud, Daniel enjoyed the fire engines as well as the bag pipers, as you can see.

And it would not be a St. Patrick's Day parade without a walking Guinness pint.



A bit of reality TV for you - If you watch TLC's Cake Boss show it is taped in Hoboken. We did have grand plans on going in but the line to get in was around the corner and there was no way Daniel was going to wait - even for a cookie.

And no we don't normally visit reality TV haunts but when in Jersey......

One Never Knows...

what is hiding beneath wood paneling ....


Or who is hiding in it....

How funny is it that we bought a house that had THIS type of wallpaper lurking underneath its wood paneling??? And what is more scary is that it appears that the whole downstairs living room had this wallpaper on its walls. Thank god for wood paneling but talk about TACKY!!
