My parents and niece, Lily, came to visit over the Easter long weekend, and we had a very enjoyable visit. Some highlights were Sam and Lily getting lots of quality play time, an action-packed outing to the swimming pool at Millennium Place (complete with hot tub, lazy river, and wave pool) and, as always, re-visiting the farmer's market, library, and park circuit on Saturday morning. We capped off the visit with an excursion to Marble Slab Creamery, where tasty, tasty ice cream was had by all.
Here are a few photos to give a sense of the visit.
