    That part I do know. She has tickets for 2 adults and two kids. She plans on taking her daughter in law and the two girls and they'll take the train in.

    Thanks for posting Stang!

    I was so down and just forlorn since hearing about my dad. I had completely forgotten I had even entered the lottery for these tickets.

    Today I opened my email and there it was...this email...from the website. I was almost afraid to even look. Then it said...we are excited to announce that you have been chosen..and I screamed! I went and grabbed Tony from another room and dragged him all the way to my computer and made him read the email with Then I went and called Jamie and we all talked and decided how we would do this. I called Keyanas mom and made sure she could go...yes. Then we decided that it would be me and my daughter in law and we would take the girls.

    I called my Dad and told him and he was just thrilled. What exciting news in a week that was really not so exciting!

    Janet, if you don't have a video camera or someone who can loan you a video camera........then I'd try to rent one. This is an extraordinary event and you won't want to miss a single moment!!!! I'm so happy for you guys!!! What an awesome memory to have for the girls and you to share!!! :D :D :D

    For religious reasons growing up, I've never been to any sort of Easter festivities. This sounds like a really fun opportunity for the kids. Enjoy!

    So, Janet, please explain what is involved for a non-Yank. I gather it's the US version of a garden party with the Queen in the grounds of Buck House? Sounds marvellous!
