Happy Easter from Us!

I know I’m a little late on that.  I have to apologize for the blogging hiatus; we all took a trip up to New Jersey to visit my side of the family and meet our newest family members.  If I am given permission by my sister and brother I might just post pictures of their daughter and son, respectively, that were both just born in January.  Easter, by the way, was a Baby Fest, as my sister put it.

Some of us enjoyed the festivities:

And of course, no trip would be complete without one fun anecdote:

Ryan and I were able to sneak away for a dinner out just for the two of us.  We aim to have a weekly date, and we weren’t willing to give it up for the week we were visiting family.

Especially not when there were so many willing and eager babysitters around.

Anyway, the hubs took me to what used to be my favorite Mexican restaurant, and we had a grand old time playing cards, eating burritos, and just laughing.  During our card game, I played a sly move, to which Ryan’s response was flaring his nostrils.

(I really should have photographed the nostril flaring; it’s amazing what that man can do with his nose.)

It was the most exaggerated nostril flare I had ever seen, and I called him out on it.  I asked if he was trying to suck all the oxygen out of the room.

To which my dear husband responds:

“I can’t; there are too many plants in here.”

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the Silly Beard Moment of the Week.
