Kim and Mike had decided to bring the girls up for the Easter weekend and stay a few extra days since they both had the following week off. Jolene remembered visiting Science North last year and meeting the Easter Bunny. Now she is convinced that the EB lives in Sudbury. I was disappointed to see nothing advertised for any special Easter activities at Science North this year and I sent them an Email telling them so. I got a reply saying they were celebrating the same as last time but that it hadn't been put on the website. Or advertised anywhere else. This seems to be a strange marketing strategy. I hope they aren't expecting a large turnout.
The family was supposed to drive up on Good Friday but Mike's grandfather passed away the night before so Sandy and I drove to Cambridge on Friday and picked up the girls. It was a tight fit in the Caravan with the clothes, equipment, two kids' car seats and three adults, but we made it work. I was pleasantly surprised at how well behaved the girls were for the 300 mile drive home.
Easter Sunday morning dawned and there were gift baskets to be explored.
