Easter at the Blake's

This Easter was just splendid. We spent the morning with mama and papa Quigs, had a nice brunch with them and then it was off to the Blake home. The biggest event of the night of course was the Easter egg hunt. See this is mighty important to Gina because as many of you know, she has not eaten candy or sugar for some three years now, so instead of hunting for the eggs she gets to hide them. This is just as fun if not more for her. Seriously, she almost rented an Easter Bunny costume this year!! I would have paid to see that. Anyway, it was a great day and Gina hid those eggs well. I had to do my part and found one or two of those eggs. I was just one of the boys out on the hunt. No one ever said that there was an age limit for egg hunting!! I admit to having quite the sweet tooth and I get cranky when I don't get my sugar so its justified. My nephews were lots better at finding the eggs though, they got like three times more candy than I did!! It was great times!

On May 3rd there is a walk for autism that my family is going to participate in. The walk is designed to raise money and awareness for researching autism. If you want to join our team and walk or just make a donation you can go to this website
