I have not fathomed just how big and over the top America celebrates holidays. Trying to find things to put in the boys’ Easter baskets proved this point to myself. There are lots of eggs, but no ‘baskets’. There is also not a plethora of plastic green grass, needless Easter toys and egg dying kits. I love the thought of just buying an Egg and the boys were both excited to get their own egg. However I did pick up some extra little chocolates, a film, and a few items from the toy section so we can have some new things to do together while they are on Easter Break.
We really wanted to get out of the house today and do something special as a family. We took the boys over to Chichester to go to the RAF museum. The boys really enjoyed seeing the planes and it was really nice to do something that reminded me of my dad. He would have loved going there with us. I really wish I could have seen what he would be like with my boys experiencing something that was such a huge part of his life and who he was while he was alive.
