113/365: Back to the Grindstone

2 weeks post partum.  I have been doing extra little chores the last few days.  I am feeling pretty good.  Iris and I mowed some of the yard today, I cut some fabric for the back of Brian's quilt, and got several seedlings planted in the garden.  I look forward to being able to exercise fully again.  Loving the spring weather.

112/365: Unfurling of Spring

Next time you are driving down the road, glance to the plants growing along your way.  Many of them have this green "glitter" of spring as the leaves unfurl.

Easter Weekend

It was a fabulous weekend!  Friday was pizza and movie night. Saturday morning we went to eat pancakes and sausage with the Easter bunny at the school for a post prom fundraiser, Saturday afternoon the local 4H group sponsored the annual egg hunt on the town square, Saturday night we dyed eggs, Sunday morning the kids got their baskets, had an egg hunt in the yard, and Sunday afternoon I cooked a yummy meal to share with Nana, Papa, and Luz.

109/365: Iris is a Big Winner at Egg Hunt

Today, our community held their annual egg hunt sponsored by the local 4H group. Gareth and I went up before it started to help hide eggs.  Iris was in the 4-5 year old group, found the special prize egg, and won a special easter basket full of goodies.

 On our adventures yesterday, we stopped by the old astronomical observatory down the road from our house.

what a shame this is no longer in use.  How awesome it would be to have this in our neighborhood
