This past weekend we took a road trip out to Meadow Vista for a family reunion. It was a beautiful drive through Lotus and Auburn along winding roads and green rolling hills lined with oak trees. The kids had a blast swimming and playing. This was a nice little pit stop along the North Fork of the American River.

Well I am so excited because this year we bought season passes to Six Flags. I usually like to take the kids once every year or every other, but always feel like we need more than one day to fit it all in. I love owning season passes because now I don't feel rushed to get there right as the park opens and try to "do it all." Forrest had to work and was not able to go with us this time around, but we'll be back soon.

|these penguins were so cute.|
|Kaitlyn had a *blast* on the swings, especially the 2nd time around.|
|there were lots of rides for the smaller kids to go on.|
|Anthony was in-awe.|
|These big suckers are a novelty, and the only thing we purchased in the park that day.|
|This playground was the best, because I was able to let Anthony work off some of the antsy energy he had worked up from sitting in the stroller. It was pretty much the only safe place where I could let him out, and all the kids loved it.|

This was the day after we got back from Yosemite. We assembled Easter baskets, colored eggs, had an indoor hunt (it was raining) and hosted family dinner: roast beef, mashed potatoes, artichoke bread, glazed carrots, asparagus gratin, and coconut cream cake. We ended the night by putting the kids to bed and watching Les Mis with Tommy and Vera.
