We had planned to celebrate Easter at the Tudor room for brunch. When Doug and I were in college we ate there with his family one Easter and two years ago we did the same with Brett. Cal had really wanted to try it as well, but unfortunately we could not get reservations for this morning. We were surprised as Doug had called more than three weeks ago.
As our first option was out we went with the next best spot - a picnic at Oliver Winery. Parce decided not to join us. It was his first day off all week and he wanted to rest. We did get to visit with him most of the morning, however, before we left. We made plans to come back in June for Taste of Bloomington.
The weather was perfect for a picnic and we all had a great lunch. We had time for walks around the pond and pictures before we left. Cal had driven to the winery so we could leave from there. We all said our goodbyes. Knowing that we had had a wonderful weekend and that it would be only a few short weeks before we would see Cal again, it was a only quick hug before he took off. He had studying to do and Doug wanted to be home before dinner time. Although today wasn't our traditional Easter Sunday, we still had a great family day.
