When Mass was over, at the back of the church, there were hot cross buns, Easter eggs (courtesy Chez Red Sea), and coffee.

Then think thick cut bacon, “powdermilk” pancakes with carmelized bananas, lots of coffee, chocolate crepes filled with banana mousse. And that was just me.
Then back to friend’s house to fix a flat tire (long, boring story). More playing. Some knitting.
By the time we came home, dinner was out of the question. We got some popcorn, tangerine jelly beans, and orange cream soda together and popped in Princess Bride.
This was a huge hit with Violet, but we did have to pack Victoria off to bed before the “torture” scene started. It was really nice to watch a bit more “grown-up” movie with my near-eight-year-old.
