Easter and Stuff

 We had a nice Easter celebrating with Brad's family. 


Brad's mom, Sandy, had plastic eggs hidden all over their back yard. They boys had a blast running around looking for them! Then they were "cracking" them on the table and opening them up! 


Then she brought out two buckets full of little toys and candies and a few wrapped presents for each one! She definitely went overboard! 

We had a good time though and it was a beautiful day outside, too! 


There is a house not to far from us that has the whole back part of their yard planted with daffodils. This is the best picture I could get without stepping on to their property. If you click on the picture and make it bigger you can get a better view.  It's really pretty and I look forward to seeing all of them flowers every Spring! 



I've been scanning old pictures and this one was taken in Grand Haven back in 2005 when we went for a visit. The stone is there in memory of people who have lost their lives after being swept off the pier and in honor of those who tried to save them. 



This is a view down the pier with the lighthouse. When it's stormy the waves on Lake Michigan can get huge!  If you are  on the pier they can come up and sweep you right off! It happens a few times every year on various Lake Michigan piers. 



The sunsets with the pier and light house silhouetted are so beautiful! My header picture was also taken in Grand Haven several years later.  






This is a close up of the GM tower at the Renaissance Center that I talked about in my anniversary post a few weeks back. It was taken in 2005 when the baseball All-Star game was at Comerica Park in Detroit. 

They had a picture of a baseball smashing into the tower with "4,612 Ft" which is the distance from home plate in Comerica Park! I thought it was pretty clever! 

That's about it for me right now. We have had beautiful weather the last few days. Got our deck furniture all cleaned up and am looking forward to many hours sitting out there enjoying the beautiful weather!

Until the next time stay safe and well my friends!

Easter Eve

Easter Eve? Is it officially Easter eve or maybe it's just called Holy Saturday. 

Friday we went to Shauna's to help the boys color Easter eggs, 


I bought them these cute little aprons to wear so they don't get dye on their clothes. 


It was fun. Maxwell was dying eggs like a pro


Levi was having fun mixing the colors until all his tubs held the same color. Luckily we got him to dye a couple eggs different colors first! 


I made their Easter baskets and we brought them to them on Friday because Sunday will be getting baskets from the Easter Bunny and also from Brad's parents! 


They liked all the little toys I put in there and of course, the candy. Plus we were all helping them eat it! 

Tomorrow we are going to Brads parents for Easter brunch. They invite us every year. We haven't gotten together with our families for Easter for several years, and especially not the last two years!

I hope you all have a blessed and Happy Easter. 

Until the next time stay safe and well my friends.
