Christopher Court - Big Brother

Big Brother

Christopher Court with his brother JamieEaster fell between the end of radiation and the beginning of chemo therapy.  Chris' big brother, Jamie, came to visit during his Easter break from university in England.  Chris really enjoyed building Lego models with Jamie and playing video games together.  During one of the weekends, the family went to stay at a relatives shore house in Sea Isle City on the Jersey Shore.  It was great time to relax and unwind after the nonstop hospital visits.  Chris enjoyed collecting sea shells and look for crabs in the rocks along the shore line.  Another high point for Chris was watching Jamie play guitar hero on the board walk in Wildwood.

In this video you will see Chris doing his Karate workout to Viva La Vida from Coldplay.  Any time Chris' parents hear this song now it makes them cry.


Christopher Court with his family in Atlantic City



Whilst at the shore they also visited Atlantic City and saw the Aquarium and board walk.  Chris liked the Hard Rock Cafe and bought nice pair of drum sticks from the gift shop.  Chris has always really enjoyed aquariums and particularly enjoyed this one.

While no one forgot about the difficult times they knew were coming, they managed to put it to the back of their minds and really enjoyed a normal family vacation together. 

Christopher Court at the family Easter Egg Hunt



The following weekend was Easter and time for another annual favorite, the family Easter Egg Hunt.  This is one of the few times each year the whole family gets together and Chris really enjoyed the Easter Egg Hunt with all his cousins.  Despite being early in the year, it was a beautiful warm sunny day.
