…Easter pics. Of course the first thing the kiddos wanted upon waking up was their Easter baskets, ‘cuz everyone should start their day with chocolate & candies.
We spent the morning as a family just hanging out without having to rush out to a game of some sort. It was nice.
Then we headed out to San Francisco to pick up Auntie Fabianna at the airport and then off to the Cliffhouse for some brunch. The Cliffhouse sits on a bluff on the Pacific side of San Francisco with some amazing views.
It was beautiful and the food was great. I’m always apprehensive about brunch buffets but this one was very good (or I was really hungry). The service left a bit to be desired at times, but between the view, the champagne and the harp player we got over it.
Since our reservation was at 2:30, sebastian was astute enough to point out that at that time it should be called dunch since it’s a combination of lunch & dinner and not brunch. Yes, he’s my highly literal child. And, he’s got a point.
I do have to say that the kids both enjoyed themselves AND made the experience enjoyable for the grown ups. My kiddos are growing up and embracing more of the grown-upish activities. They even left the DS games in the car & everything. It’s a bittersweet acknowledgment.
We tried to enjoy the outside views after brunch drunch but it was c-o-l-d & windy.
We would have liked to take a little stroll along the water to walk off our drunch but we were all shivering. That’s San Francisco though….always picturesque but the weather is a roll of the dice.
When I reminded the children of the story and symbolism behind Easter I received plenty of questions and concerns which was my Easter present. Although we don’t frequent church as often as I would like my kids embrace it & understand it deeply.
