When they first arrived, we went to downtown Decatur for the annual Touch-A-Truck event, where the kids were able to explore and climb in the various public-service vehicles.

As you have seen in previous posts, we had a fabulous Easter. Ninong and Ninang were also excited to find a present that completely enthralled Gabi-girl: stickerbooks!

We love to show off our city, so we ate dinner in Decatur and then took a long walk around downtown.
