Good Morning to you. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! WE had such a fun weekend~on Friday night 7 of our granddaughters spent the night. What fun we had, from nails being painted to watching Night At The Museum 3, to giggles and having a hard time getting to sleep in the fort that Papa made. Saturday morning we had a big breakfast and then went on a 1.5 mile walk. After they went home, I just had a very relaxed day; I got a new ebook recommended by one of my blogging buddies and read the entire book in the afternoon, just sitting in the sun. Yesterday the entire family came over for lunch. We fixed ham, bbq chicken, deviled eggs-isn't the one in the middle cute! I also made cupcakes for dessert and had splurged and bought a box of Sees candy(A family tradition). The girls brought rolls, potato salad and fruit salad. Such a good meal.
These tulips were a birthday gift from a dear friend; they package had a label that said Bloom Makers, Long Life Flowers. I love them; you just keep adding water to them.

Just before the candy hunt(they already did egg hunts at their house), we lined them all up for a photo. Well, actually there was a little more to it than that. After this picture was taken, all the adults whipped out cans of silly string and sprayed them all. It was such fun and they thought it was so funny. One granddaughter, the oldest, kept saying "well, I just wasn't expecting that". It was Papa and my idea and one to show the kiddos that we still like to get silly now and again.
I'm off to walk now, will bike later and maybe take a second shorter walk. The weather will be nice today and I'm loving being outside.
Joy to you!
