After a day in the city with kids, Sam and I took it "easy" by staying home with all three kids so Brian and Kendra could explore the city.

The rest of their visit we stuck close to home, exploring the town of Ridgefield and a bit of Long Island Sound at Sherwood Island State Park.

The visit with the Newhouse family was a lot of fun and went by much too quickly.
Later in the month we attended the Stew Leonard's Easter Egg "Hunt", not so much a hunt as go through and collect eggs and get pictures with characters, but it was fun all the same and perfect for their age.

Earlier in the month I had promised Annabelle that on the next nice day we would take a trip to the park and have a picnic. That day finally arrived April 26, we packed a lunch and went to not one, but two parks.
Here are some more pictures I couln't leave out.
