Fun afternoon

This weekend was pretty full and fun. The photography exhibit we saw on Friday was awesome and well worth the drive into the city. Maddie was a bit less interested though and spent most of her time outside enjoying the sunshine with her Nonnie. Saturday morning we woke up and waited for Aunt Lizzy and Uncle Justin to come and visit. We hung out all day and then went out to a nice dinner in downtown. I was hoping for Halibut and that's what I got; don't you love when it works like that? The next day (yesterday) was Easter and we were in slow motion. We took our time waking up (partly because Maddie had a tough time sleeping the night before). We hunted the Easter eggs we dyed the day before and Maddie definitely got the hang of it. Lot's of cute pictures came from that. We ate an amazing brunch and then headed to my Dad's. We stopped by the big Nardi Easter Celebration at Uncle Dave's to say "hi" and let people see Maddie. Came home and crashed! Today, Maddie, her Grandma Claudia, her Aunt Gianna and I took her to Pixie Playland. It was a blast. It's a little amusement park for kids 5 and under, so it has little rides just for them. Maddie went on a train and she rode the cars once with me and two times with her Aunt Gianna. We visited the ducks and then headed home. Maddie fell asleep before we left the parking lot. It's was fun and made me wish we had something like that in VA. So, we're having a great time. Tomorrow we'll head to my mom's in San Jose to see my grandparents for lunch and then back here to Dad's until we leave Friday morning. Gabe is really missing us and we're missing him and our dogs.

Thanks for the comments guys! I'm sure Maddie is missed and I think even she's ready to get back to her own bed, dogs, and see her Daddy. I got your voicemail Lex. Thanks for the birthday wishes. We had a blast that day. Can't wait to see you all when we get back. Love you too, Gabe. We're ready to come home to see you.
