Wait Wait...Okay Tell Me

Eric and I had a rare night out on Thursday and went to see a taping of NPR's Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me. For those of you not familiar, Wait Wait is the NPR news quiz show on Saturday mornings. This was my first time to Powell Symphony Hall, right across the street from the Fabulous Fox Theatre. I am a HUGE Wait Wait fan, so I jumped at the chance to see the show live. I was especially excited to see Mo Rocca live. They actually gave us prizes for showing up...reusable shopping bags and YES they have already been used! The show was great, as usual, and you can download the pod cast via ITunes.

From there, we had a great pizza at Ciceros in the Central West End and froze sitting under the air conditioner duct, (who would have thought they would be PACKED at 10 on a Thursday?!?) I'm still trying to catch up on sleep from the adventure, but it was well worth it ;)

We spent Easter in Indiana with Eric's family. We had excellent weather the entire time we were there. We took Alex to an Easter Egg hunt, but it got rained out. It literally stopped raining when we walked to the car to leave the hunt.

Alex was quite curious about the Easter Bunny and went up to investigate. He sat on the Bunny's lap just long enough for me to snap a picture. He really was happy to see the Bunny, despite the look on his face.

Alex spent most of Easter morning collecting eggs, filled and unfilled.
He particually liked putting them in the back of the tractor and scooting them around. Eric found the old John Deer pedal tractor in the barn and washed it off. Alex isn't quite tall enough for it, but he enjoyed sitting on it.
