This week Max and I went on a downtown adventure with my parents. Believe it or not, we had never been on the light rail, so we caught it at the MOA and took it downtown to have lunch with Dave! I was a little worried about how max was going to do on the 40 minute train ride but he did really well as long as one of us was singing to him, or showing him something out the window or reading him a story or or or....

Since spring refuses to come to Minnesota, we have to go find our own spring. What better place than at the Macy's Flower Show? This year it was titled The Painted Garden and had a cool Indian vibe. The Macy's flower show is a tradition in the Amos/Hromadko family and it usually includes lunch at The Oak Grill on Macy's 12th floor. The food is not all that fancy, but there's dark paneling on the walls, white table cloths and popovers so what more can you ask for, really? And it just brings to mind generations of families coming "all the way" downtown to discover what new, exciting things the (then Dayton's) 8th floor display had in store for them. Can you tell I'm a sucker for tradition?

It seems strange to be celebrating Easter when there is still snow on the ground. Spring is late and Easter is early!
Easter basket fun
I could not get enough of Max in this suit coat! So ridiculous and so adorable.
We celebrated with my family for lunch, and like usual, I only got pictures of the kids.
We celebrated with Dave's family for dinner and.....I didn't take any pictures. But there were nine kids age eight and under running around so I didn't really have a chance! It was a very busy (read: fun!) place. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter celebrating the love and sacrifice of Jesus! He is risen!
