Eggstra Fun Week!

It was wonderful to have our daughter Elizabeth and three of our grand children with us all this past week. The first couple days were slowed down a little by Elizabeth and the youngest one, Curtis, feeling a little under the weather, but the activities went on nonetheless. The above was one of several rainy day crafts that Nana put together. Painting Easter egg cookies. Lots of color there, and even Mom got to do a little art work. Ashlyn and Carter were quite proud of their work, but I think they enjoyed consuming them more than painting them.
One the prettiest day of the week, they all went to the zoo and enjoyed seeing it for once without being hot and sweaty. They had a lot of fun and even road the train, which was something that they hadn't done before.

Look at all the dimples! Where did they come from? They were clearly feeling much better during that day at the zoo.

After the Easter egg hunt at the church building Saturday morning, with hundreds of kids and thousands of eggs, Carter helped me hook up the trailer and the ATV so we could take it for a ride over at Larry and Wanda Stewart's place. We had a lot of fun circling their property and checking out some deer tracks in their woods.

Chad was able to fly in on Friday morning and be here for a couple days. It was good to see him and have him here to share the weekend with us. They had Easter baskets ready for the kids when they got up Sunday morning. In this picture, Carter and Ashlyn are helping Curtis discover what was in his basket. They explored their baskets much earlier in the morning.
It was a great week and we are so thankful that we got to spend some time with them. Now we can't wait until the next visit. Hopefully everyone will be able to come up for the play in June. It's less than two months away. Oh my! We've got a lot to do between now and then.
