Family Time

Song - In My Life by The Beatles

Sunday was a beautiful and warm day.  My brother and sister-in-law hosted Easter this year and it was so much fun to see all of their grandchildren growing up. 

The food, the weather, their home and yard were all wonderful.  But the best part for me were the little ones, who are not so little anymore!  Right Cal?  (He is seven now)

Calvin playing me in badminton or I should say beating me soundly at badminton

June twirling on the swings

Mom got plenty of baby holding time!  This is sweet little Luke.

The big kids played with the younger ones and the younger ones enjoyed each other.

Sophia jumping for joy when one of the big kids jumped into the pool

Calvin contemplating jumping off of the diving board.  Tough decision here folks!

Lily choosing just the right egg!  Another tough decision.

Time for the Pinata.......and maybe a lighter bat for Sophia

Every year mom makes a beautiful egg shaped pinata for the kids and dad does an $$ Easter egg hunt for the grownup kids!!!

And this is  handsome Harley who is watching the pinata being hit

TJ cheering on the little ones that are hitting the Pinata but secretly hoping that he gets to be the one to pop open that very strong Pinata!  And he did!!!

Sophia enjoying the bubbles

Kids are getting sleepy and that thumb tastes so good -  it's about time to head home

Mom and dad supervising the pinata games.....apparently we are not doing it just right and may need some help!

The quote for today is from me - " Do not fill your Pinata's with crackers and chips because after it's been bashed about 273 times, they turn into crumbs! Lesson learned."


  1. And we were at John and Jill's in your neighborhood, with Mia and Daphne Luna. What a gorgeous day. Happy Easter! and Bon Voyage. when are you off to Paris?

  2. Oh I wish we could of seen you both! It was a beautiful the shade! We are going to France for 3 1/2 weeks in excited.
