So I have been terrible about blogging. Chalk it up to my obsession with Facebook I guess.
Anyway, we had a wonderful Easter. The weather didn't cooperate until Sunday so the first part of the weekend was not that swell. Colt & Maggie came down Thursday night. I had taken Sparky for a bath and grooming and he looked so beautiful that they took him to the Arts Festival in St George with them on Friday afternoon. Sariann and Becca went too, but Sparky got all the attention. "What a pretty Dog!"
On Saturday it was not a good day to swim and we were bummed. Colt and Maggie got their hair cut and Maggie worked on her homework while Colt and I shopped for the Easter Feast. At least I think that's what happened. It was a week ago and I am aging rapidly.
Sunday the sun came out and it was a perfect day. Colt, Maggie and Sparky all enjoyed their Easter baskets. Then the guests arrived: Jamie, Addie, Avery, Tashia, Kevin, Sariann, Becca, Abbie, Phoenix, Bryan, Danni, Portia, Roman, and James (who we called Jason for some reason). We had a huge egg hunt with hundreds and hundreds of plastic eggs filled with goodies and coins. And the feast. Of course the feast.
Nephew Brady had some over and repaired my ailing BBQ and I had cleaned off the patio. Colt made good use of the now working BBQ and fixed possibly the best lamb I ever ate. It was an outstanding feast and I think everyone enjoyed it, the sunshine and the pool.
So my work was done: People were full. People got their first sunburn of the season. Diets were ruined.
It was a glorious Easter Day.
