We had a wonderful Easter. Gracie got lots of stuffed animals and more candy than you can imagine. She even got to eat a Peppermint Patty and some bunny ears for breakfast. On Saturday night, Jerry put together this really cute bike/stroller for Gracie that I bought in China. My friend Natalie and I spotted the bike inside a toy store and we both had to have one. The store only had one so we had to wait about 45 minutes for them to bring another over. After getting the bike and putting straps on the box so we could carry it, the bikes wouldn't fit in the taxi! We finally figured out a way to squish 3 adults, two bikes, and one child into the car. Jerry and Don, Natalie's husband thought Natalie and I were crazy and Jerry even wanted to leave the bike in China. No way was I doing that, so we hauled it to the airport, and all the way back home. Poor Jerry had a heck of a time putting the bike together as all the directions were in Chinese and the front wheel frame was bent, but he prevailed and now Gracie has the prettiest bike on the block!

Trust me, Jerry was not THIS happy while he was putting the bike together

Look who hopped onto Gracie's bike

Gracie's reaction to her Easter basket and bike

She was so excited, she ran away, down the hall

Aunt Debbie and Uncle Peter got Gracie a pop-up book. She liked kissing the pop-ups

Looks like a really great Easter. I think Jerry is earning his dad stripes early!
