Although Christmas is our traditional family holiday, it is not uncommon for some of us to also gather at Easter. Now that my youngest nephew is in school, my sister and brother-in-law decided that a spring break (which in his school district coincides with Easter) trip was in order, and fortunately choose DC as their destination. We had a lot of fun together, and they were also able to visit and meet various friends, plus more family.
On the first evening, we all enjoyed a big pancake/bacon/fruit dinner (breakfast for dinner for the win!), and blowing bubbles/eating chocolate/drinking wine (to each their own!) on my balcony. The following day they visited me at work, where the highlights of the outing were snacks eaten at one of our cafeterias, and finding Nemo in the large fish tank.
An afternoon was spent with other family members, and included visiting a horse - which meant grooming him, feeding him carrots (everyone's favorite part!), and for one lucky person - even doing some horseback riding. Family visits often also entail doing things outside the norm - such as eating ice cream shortly before dinner.
