Happy Easter!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter.
My day started off with sleeping in till about 9, a leisurely breakfast of soft scrambled eggs, toast and fruit, then the busy took over. We got together at the house in New Hartford for a pre party egg hunt for the girls (Munchkin & her friend L) This was the first time I saw her dress since we bought it months ago. Ain't it cute!

Just like last year, Munchkin proves she LOVES egg hunts and goes at it 150%. She blew past L on the hunt. After they gathered all the eggs, it was time to discover the treats inside- stamps, stickers, socks, flower seeds, and yes a little bit of chocolate :)

This year we had a new addition to the spring menu of ham, twice baked potatos, salad, glazed carrots, and ambrosia...... it is MEAT. Dad stepped up and decided that the day would not be complete without a gastronomic feast of pork. All things pork.

You have to forgive the squints- the deck is like the sahara in full sun at high noon and no shades today to boot. There is the new dish, getting it's final glaze.

Can you guess what it might be?
Have you ever heard of The Bacon Explosion? It is a dish like no other. Dad did a great job, and I had to try a little piece.
In between all of the eating we had fun with balloons- rocket, and the shaping kind- Target had a cool little kit I couldn't pass up. We also did a second easter egg hunt for the Munchkin leading to yet another basket of goodies. Best part was the adult annual Easter Beer hunt :)

Most of the family was able to come today, Liz & her hubby were sunning it up in SC and C was a bit under the weather. My brother invited his girlfriend A, who is such a great girl for him and a lovely person too!
Grampa did good today, just have to learn how to make him down that water better.

Towards the end of the day, we took a walk through the woods at Fox and Goose's wooded glen home looking for treasures and bunnies.

All in all a really good day!
