Easter 2009

Thank goodness his brother and sister are patient

It was difficult to get everyone to cooperate

It took many shots to get just the right picture

This Easter turned out to be a beautiful day so we decided to take full advantage of it. After some monkey bread and playing around the house we packed up a picnic and our bikes and head up to Chico to play in the park. Bidwell Park in Chico is our favorite park. There is so much to offer including Caper Acres playground, the path along the creek where you can ride bikes or just walk and the One Mile, where in the summer is a great swimming hole. Ed has been going to Bidwell Park since he was a young boy, which is a very long time and he has many wonderful memories of going there with cousins and aunts and uncles and with Grandma Dee living not too far from there. We started out or day with a bike ride along the creek. This was Jack's first ride in the bike seat and he did pretty good for the first mile and then he got ancy so we headed back to the playground and had our picnic and watched the kids play. Max and Emily had a lot of fun playing hide and seek in the fort and Jack enjoyed the little kids portion and just running around because he was free. It turned out to be such a great day. And of course the day would not be complete without a stop at our favorite ice cream shop, Shuberts. Oh so good. This place has been around since Ed was a little kid(and probably longer). Homemade ice cream all the way.
