Easter 2010

Easter this year was very exciting. Jenna was very into the Easter Egg hunt and even got Michael into it. I don't think he really understood what was going on, but he enjoyed finding the eggs. Of course both were excited to see what the Easter Bunny left them. These two definitely take after me, because they were all over their chocolate! After a relaxing morning, we heading into the city to celebrate Easter with the Rivera side of the family. The kids had a blast as always at Grandma Gladys' House and it was a nice afternoon.

Below are some pictures of the kids during their egg hunt. The family picture below was taken by my budding photographer. I think Jenna has a pretty good eye and maybe a calling. And the last picture is Grandma Teresa and Jenna at the end of the day when we returned home. Hope everyone had a great Easter!

Luke's 3rd Birthday

Hard to believe that it was 3 years ago I got the call to head to Staten Island for the birth of Luke Richard Sere. I remember that day clearly, sitting in the hospital waiting for his arrival to the rushing of Michele to the OR for an emergency C-Section. Standing outside the OR with Richie, we heard Luke's first cries. We were so excited and couldn't wait to see him. Now look at him 3 years later he is such a big boy. Where did that baby go!!!!

Luke had a great birthday celebration at the Staten Island Children's Museum. The kids had a blast as they ran around the construction and boat rooms. Of course to top it off the kids enjoyed pizza and yummy canoli cake!! Ok so maybe I enjoyed the canoli cake a bit more than my kids, but it was so good!!! Below are just some of the pictures from that afternoon of fun.

Happy Birthday to our favorite little Staten Island boy!!! xoxoxo
