Saturday picnics and such

Today, we slept in. And that was wonderful. Then, we got up and went to a picnic that ICCP, the church here that Dom is a pastor of, was hosting in a local park. There were Easter egg hunts for the kids and field day events for the youth. There were over 100 people there, total, and it was a great time to meet a lot of their friends.

We picked up sandwiches at a local bakery to take with us, and although it was overcast, Daisy had fun with her little Easter basket and a few eggs.

Dom and David got a game of American football going, teaching a group of guys the rules and how to throw the ball. They had a lot of fun.

On the way home (it was about a 30 minute walk from Dom and Hil's apartment), we stopped at a patisserie and enjoyed a few snacks.

When we got home we crashed... we were all so exhausted. Daisy had fun wearing mommy's hat while we relaxed on the bed.
For dinner, Dom and David went and picked up Vietnamese and Chinese food. We always eat Chinese food on March 27, in memory of David's father. He passed away 3 years ago today, and one way that we honor him is to eat Chinese food together as a family. We were surprised that the restaurant here actually had some authentic Chinese food, including Bao, Hac Cao, and Shu mi.

Now we are ending the night watching some basketball via the slingbox connected to our TV in Blacksburg. Isn't technology amazing? We're in France watching our own DirecTV signal... :)

Daisy likes to sit on daddy's lap and just chill.
