And a happy first Easter it was!

As you can see, the Easter Bunny spoiled Torin on his first Easter. And just what did that big, lovable rabbit leave for our dear boy?

  • Bath toys
  • A toy that makes lots of bubbles
  • Soft blocks
  • A Leap Frog "My Pal Scout"
  • Several teether toys
  • A pair of sunglasses
  • A khaki summer hat
  • A car seat/stroller toy
  • A couple of small Fisher-Price cars
  • A toy cell phone
How can we parents ever top that sort of gift giving? Looks like we'll have to overboard on his birthday!

After getting some good pictures of Torin and his loot, we headed out for lunch at Loose Wheels, Texas--a biker bar near the Oklahoma border (but don't worry, they're very kid friendly during the day). Afterward, we took a leisurely drive through the country in northeast Texas, visiting Paris and Cooper Lake along the way. It was nice to get away from the city and leave our troubles back at home for a little while.

In all, it was a terrific Easter Sunday, full of the merriment I've always imagined possible for a family of my own.

Edited: Just now, Pookie sat up unassisted for a couple of minutes in his crib. He just began sitting on his own last night, but only for a few seconds at a time. I guess his lengthy sitting spell tonight--a major milestone--was his Easter gift to us!
