I took over 100 pictures on Easter, and only 20 are worth posting. Some are just posted because they're so bad. I had to do a lot of cropping, sometimes finding one good face in a sea of many and zooming in almost to the point of blur. But that doesn't mean we didn't have a great time at Grandma and Pop-pop's! There were over 30 people and Pop-pop made slow-roasted orange duck that the kids LOVED! (Maybe it was Peking duck.) Hopefully, I'll have some good videos to post. The kids are actually napping at the moment, so maybe I'll venture on to watching videos.
Olive's Easter basket
Poppy's Easter basket
Notice the Max and Ruby dolls in the middle of each basket. Max and Ruby is the obsession du jour for both of them.
"Olive, can you PLEASE turn around so I can take a picture?"
She downed an eggful of M&Ms shortly after this.
Poppy went right for the ring pops.
Olive and her mommy
Did you notice the hands grabbing Jill's fingers?
Poppy did not want her picture taken
If he says "cheese," he smiles crookedly. If he says "monkey," his smile straightens and he pulls his ear.
I don't have a good picture of David, his dad, but they look the same. This counts.
My Sister Maria
Poppy asking for candy
Maria, Freddie, and Susie
Olivia and Nicasia
Roman and Julian
Rom, Natalie, and Aunt Michele
They are only smiling because they were bribed with candy.

The weather has been unseasonably warm, but I've been thinking about all the sunshine in Florida...
Climbing a giant baobab tree
If you look in the lower right corner, you can see "Poppy and Olive" freshly carved into the tree trunk.
New Year's Eve!
We love Pop-pop!
Olive looks like she is falling when she rolls down a hill.
Olive is trying to put up 2 fingers
"I'll push you, Olive!"
Don't look down, Olive!
Art Deco Weekend
I'm eating a delicious arepa.
Climbing and eating is so safe.
Poppy getting tired
Poppy went a little crazy with the paint. She looks like she just escaped the asylum.
At the Miami Children's Museum
We're going to miss this view :-(
