Easter with the family

I got up and went to breakfast at Dunkin' Donuts, and then set off for Jamaica (the section of Queens, not the island nation!) to get the train. I didn't think things through too carefully, and ended up getting there very early for a train to get me to Merrick by 1:30, so I killed time by window shopping along Sutphin Blvd.

Finally got a train at 12:46 that got me to Merrick by 1:11. Called for a ride, and Brianne came and picked me up. Turns out the Kid changed her mind about travel plans and ended up driving after all. She and the SIL, and Oldest Brother and Middle Brother arrived at the same time just as Brianne was leaving to get me, so we all got there at just about the same time.

It was a wonderful time. John and Denise cooked up a marvelous meal, lamb, gravy, potatoes, two types of veggies, and mushrooms. With mint jelly on the side. Then for dessert we had apple pie and ice cream, and chocolate macaroons. Aunt Helen is well.

We had a really nice time talking, but finally it was time to go. John and Denise had offered to drive Middle Brother back to his group home so Oldest Brother could go straight to work, and stay a little longer. The Kid and SIL and I drove back to Forest Hills where she parks the car.

I had texted [personal profile] mashfanficchick that I would be there, and she said come over, so I did. We went to Chile's, but of course I didn't eat another dinner, I just had dessert.

Then they brought me home, and now it's past time for bed!
