Easter Sunday

It's great to wake up on Easter Sunday morning.  You know what a wonderful day it is.  You know what a great gift we have all been given.  Something to contemplate no matter what your beliefs are.

And how wonderful it is that we get to spend it with our oldest son and our two youngest grandchildren.  Of course, we are missing our daughter-in-law Helen who graciously sent Steve off to be with his kids and parents.  She is pretty special.  Next year Helen!

And, of course, we miss our youngest son Brian, wife Lorri, and granddaughter Zoe plus older grandchildren Mike and Kirsten who are off at college.

So what else happened today.  Well, the kids and Steve did another campout in the living room.  You may remember their first campout.  It wasn't long ago.  Willy and Harley were thrilled because they get to campout too.  Gretchen, not so much!  She was very confused about the whole event.  She needs her beauty sleep so she went in her crate and was upset no one came to shut the door.  Poor baby.  On the other hand, no one likes an RV campout better than Gretchen.

Anyway, Grandma got up when she heard the kids in the morning.  Steve was desperately trying to catch a few zzzzzzz's since he missed so many during the night of the campout.

I told the kids we were having hard boiled eggs for breakfast.   Cameron said "I'll take mine boiled pleased." I told him they were already cooked but I could heat them up with some butter or he could have them cold with salt and pepper.  He had one each way.  Morgan had hers cold with salt and pepper.  Steve got up and had eggs too.

There was one final egg hunt left for the weekend.  The two grandkids and three furry kids gathered in the backyard to hunt down the eggs their Dad and Grandpa hid out there.

" Okay kids, here are the rules."

There are 28 small eggs and two big eggs so I don't think you found them all yet.  Keep looking!

How many do you have Morgan?

These are really good Dad.

Sometimes Morgan just can't help being silly!  Cameron is protesting the picture taking.

Cameron also got a styrofoam airplane.  See the plane Steve is throwing.  And Morgan got a foam book to put design and put together.

Great throw Cameron!

It was a great weekend.  Dinner will be served in a little while and later on we will have to take the kids back to Marble Falls to meet their Mom.  But we all had a great weekend.  I hope your Easter was a good one too.


  1. What a wonderful family time. Those are the memories that last a lifetime. Really cute kids. Hope you had a Joyous Easter.

  2. What a fun day, and great memories for the kids. I think this is the first Easter I've spent with no grandkids - it was pretty dull! There's nothing like grandkids to make any day more fun. I especially love watching them hunt Easter eggs. I'm glad you had such a good time.

  3. Your grandkids are so lucky to have you. Lots of egg hunts. I must have grown up deprived, never did an egg hunt but did get one large chocolate bunny,.

  4. Hello,
    I came across your website and found it very enjoyable. I just had a couple of questions so if you could e-mail me back that would be great!
