A Very Hoppy Easter!!

Welcome sunshine! I'm talking to you and mother nature! We are so happy it's nice and warm now, finally. We are such nature freaks, tree huggers, or simply outdoorsy. Whatever you call it - yippee for the sun! Easter was very nice this year and the weather cooperated for the most part. It may be exhausting getting up so early to hide the eggs but it's all good (can you say 4am so the little darlings don't suspect?)...

Here we are at the crack of dawn! So excited for the hunt...

We had a great time hunting for flowers at the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point this year. We didn't have to look far as there were tons of great bulbs of all kinds! It's a tradition the kids love and so do we.

Hi there - I'm having so much fun finding eggs and other treats!

It's been a fun spring so far. The kids had spring break from school last week and we did lots of fun stuff with friends and cousins. Swimming and picnics and movies were the highlights. Now they're back at school and mom can rest a little -NOT...

Finally Spring

We are so glad the weather has gotten nicer so we can go outside more on our bikes. Here are
the kids below at the Bridalveil Falls where we got married 10 years ago. It's still a little dead looking but still beautiful. Can't wait for the gorgeous meadows to bloom soon!

Our cute little lovies all dressed up in their Easter clothes. Getting along and being mellow for a change!
Isabel's birthday celebration. All 13 grand kids together - yae. That's quite the trick since my sister lives far away, boohoo.

Our lovely eggs! Happy Easter everyone!!
