We went to my mom's house on Easter, per tradition. Instead of hiding eggs in her yard, this year she decided to do an indoor hunt with eggs containing a sequence of clues, which the kids tore through in less than five minutes. It was pretty funny to watch. We also played the kids' favorite Looney Labs game, Just Desserts, followed by a version of Monopoly my mom had that was based on the Muppet Show. The cheapest property on the board was the Swinetrek, so I chanted "PIGS! IN! SPAAAACE!" every time someone landed on it. Unfortunately Connor got upset when he couldn't get the properties he wanted and started running low on funds, so we probably won't play it again any time soon. He's very happy with Yoshi's Crafted World, though, and I told him I'd play along with him on that sometime. Meanwhile Will spent the day replaying the original Picross game on the DS.

I saw Shazam on Friday with the usual suspects. It was goofy and heartwarming, apart from the scenes between the villain and his father, which were gratuitously dark. Not sure where it fits in with the rest of the DC Universe, though, since it takes place in Philadelphia and not a fictional place like Gotham or Metropolis or Atlantis. Not that I really care all that much, since I'm not emotionally invested like I am with the MCU. Speaking of which, I have my Endgame ticket for Friday night, since I couldn't go Thursday. Hopefully I will find time to rewatch Infinity War before then.

Tonight is the final rehearsal for the spring handbell program, with concerts on Thursday, Sunday, and the following Monday. I really like the songs we're doing and I'm looking forward to getting them in front of an audience. After that, I will spend Mondays in May rehearsing for Beethoven's Ninth, and some other night of the week rehearsing the handbell pieces for the regional festival in New Orleans in mid-June.
