A Happy Easter

The Easter Bunny visited us on Sunday.


We spent most of the day at Nana and Grandpa's for brunch...

...which included the world's most adorable pan of rice krispy treats that Nana made.



We hunted eggs... well, gathered them from the chicken coop.




Nana and Grandpa's yard is beautiful with Spring flowers everywhere!





Then the kids hunted for Easter eggs...


and hunted...

and hunted...



...and ate the candy inside!




There's a nest of Phoebe birds on a ledge in the upper corner of their front porch. This is the second year that these birds have made their nest there. The baby Phoebe's have hatched!






After brunch and the Easter Egg hunt, we took the paddle boat out for it's maiden voyage on the lake. Jon, the kids, and I paddled our way around the lake.


See you later, Nana and Grandpa! We're never bringing this boat back!



Jon and I sat in front to pedal....


and the kids sat in the back.



We saw turtles sunning themselves on logs.



The lake was so beautiful.


These flowers were so fragrant... and I love the reflection in the water.


After we came back to shore, the kids got into their bathing suits and splashed around in the wading pool on the shaded deck.







It was a wonderful day!

That looks like such a fun day! The turtles are so cool! The Easter Bunny left some awesome baskets!

Mom, your yard is so prety with all the flowers. What is that bush with the white flowers? Snow on the Mountain or something? I can't remember but I love it! I need to get one.

I agree with what Charlotte said, "It was the best day ever!" We had a blast! Nana and I took the paddle boat out for a spin at sundown and it was almost magical! That's the way to spend Easter!

Katie - that bush is a Double File Viburnum for the way the flowers march two by two down the branch. I plan on trying to bring you some good volunteers when I come down. Get the shovel ready!! We really did have a wonderful Easter and the boat was a hit with us all! The kids are such fun and really make the day special! Those baskets were amazing Becky and I'm signing up to be your kid when I grow old enough to be little again!! he he Thanks to Grandpa Mark for getting the boat ready and the pool out and filled. We are all lucky to have him handle the logistics of the holiday fun! Love, Momma Millie: after leaving several gardens I had started from scratch, it's nice to 'inherit' one this time!! I know you'll be glad to see yours blooming!
