My Most Favorite Picture Ever (Of My Most Favorite People Ever)



Last month, Sammie B was invited to a little Easter Egg hunt/birthday party for one of the other kiddos at her school. It happened to be the same night that I had tickets to see ROD STEWART (a dirty secret - I adore him. And yes, I was the youngest person at the concert that wasn't drug there by much older parents), but I didn't want Sammie B to miss her party.

Like the fab dad that he is -- B agreed to take her to the party and I went to the concert with a friend. (Since he was raised Jewish, and we don't really do "Easter," I think it was his first Easter Egg hunt too ;o)) He did comment on his way out the door, "I hope you do appreciate this - its such a 'you' thing to do." It is true, I usually work the party circuit and let him stay home. Anyway, I said, "Just make an appearance, you don't have to stay long." So, after we snapped some pictures of the two of them looking ADORABLE, off they went.

He'd be mad at me for telling this, but it is too endearing not to share . . . he went and bought that shirt special for the occasion because he wanted to look more "grown up" than he does in his usual weekend attire - trendy t-shirts and cargo shorts (a look I like much!). It worked. Doesn't he look so grown up?

I texted him a little while into the party asking, "are you having fun?" and got this back:



I took that as a "yes."

They indeed had tons of fun, and stayed for the entire party . . .

I enjoyed every second of Rod and Sammie B and B had a fun-filled day as well, and now both have their first easter egg hunt under their proverbial belts.

I'm lucky to call those two "mine."

That picture of your two B's is fantastic! As is the pic of Sammie with her egg. She is just beyond too cute! And yes, I'm chuckling at Rod Stewart, but it's ok, we all have our dirty little secrets :)

I was catching up on your blog yesterday and wanted to post, but I guess it was down or something. Anyways... I just wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! I'm so excited for you guys that you are expecting a new little one. That Sammie's gonna make one heck of a big sister. Yes, the pic of her and Dad is in a word - adorable : )

Great pic. And I totally empathize with not quite getting the Easter Bunny thing (who knew that he needed to eat the same sorts of carrots left for Rudolf and Co. on Christmas Eve? And that he is one of those magical visitors no one ever quite sees but leaves you loot?). I'm also Jewish so it's taken a bit of induction by Sharon (who is essentially everything but nothing though all of us are increasingly attracted to Quakerism). Anyway, great pic, and it seems like everyone had an exceptionally lovely time.
