On the way to Columbia to meet Grandma & Grandpa - finally after having to get a new battery for the Jeep on Easter Sunday of all things!
Grandma is hogging Julia Grace during our Easter lunch at Ruby Tuesday's.

Grandma gave her some good stuff to eat! She was eating Mom's mashed potatoes but NO broccoli today. She had already eaten some of her own kids meal.
Forget the Ruby Tuesday's food - I have Reese's Pieces in MY Easter basket!

Notice how she's more into the Reese's Pieces than what's in the basket...

Oooh... what's that? Chalk! (WASHABLE)
Julia Grace started pulling everything out of the basket one by one finally!

She liked her new Sesame Street books!

Puzzles too! George and Melissa & Doug!

We probably had about the most non-traditional Easter we've ever done this year. We met my mom and dad in Columbia and had lunch at Ruby Tuesday's instead of anyone cooking. Tracy and I had not spent actual Easter Sunday with my parents in at least 5 years.
After Ruby Tuesday's, we went to Riverbanks Zoo down the road. Mom and Dad had called the previous Tuesday night and said they wanted us to meet them for Easter in Columbia and take Julia Grace to the zoo. SO that's what we did and we had a great time ! We saved Julia Grace's Easter basket to open in front of Grandma and Grandpa. I will post Riverbanks pics later - I posted enough zoo pics earlier today!
