It was a funny Easter.
The eggs, it turns out, weren't exactly hard-boiled.
And our pets were all afraid of the cobwebs (the string mazes our girls follow to get to their baskets).
And we were all so tired after a big week, we actually ended up at a Wimpy Kid matinee.

So it's no surprise it culminated in a spectacular kitchen crash -- a ramekin on the concrete kitchen counter.
Never mind, though.
Easter, pagan or Christian, is about fresh starts.
