Good beautiful afternoon my friends. We started right out this morning cooking and getting things ready for an early dinner. Chad, Kim, Ashley, Tony, Abbey and Lucy all came over and we were so lucky to get a four generation picture with my mom.

Then Abbey and Lucy were ready for the Easter egg hunt in the back yard. We were so lucky that rain escaped us. We had beautiful sunshine, but it was a little windy and chilly.

Each little girl had a bucket and away went Abbey.

She's an old pro at this by now!

Lucy was so excited that she could hardly breath.

She went from spot to spot picking up those eggs as fast as she could!

Finally her bucket was full too. She had to stop every time she found an egg to see what was inside.

We had a yummy dinner of ham, cheesy potatoes, green bean casserole and baked beans. Ashley made the most delicious dessert! I was so thrilled that Chad picked up Dad's old guitar and played some music - it's been a long time. I'm trying to talk him into playing at one of shop functions.

Then it was back outside to blow bubbles. Who doesn't get bubbles in their Easter baskets? Lucy had to pick out the blue bubbles.

It was so windy, that it was hard to get very big bubbles, but Abbey kept trying.

Even Kim got in on the action!
Soon it was over. Chad and Kim took Mom to Kim's parents (our Sharon from the shop), Tony and Ashley took Lucy home for a nap, and we kept Abbey to spend some time with her. Papa and Abbey are out fishing and they've already caught 4 fish. Sure would like a good fish fry!
Hope you all had a wonderful Easter Sunday!
Until next time...
