Easter Day 2011


The Easter bunny came last week while the Nelsons were here so there weren't any eggs to find (though I found one Saturday while mowing the lawn and promptly snarfed the malted milk balls inside).   We thought we were gonna have a lonely Sunday just relaxing around the house....then....it was a miracle!.  Dastrups and the C. Groneman and the B. Groneman families showed up and we had a nice ham dinner, apple pie, and played in the back yard!  Coolness.  This time we were missing Buff and the Nelsons, but managed a good time still.  This past week we bought a safety net for our trampoline (we have too many kamikaze grandkids!) and it was nice to just let the little ones jump around without having to worry about them falling off.  For some reason Emmy had issues with the 5 inch gap between the trampoline and the grass and kept calling to me for "Gramps!  Help!" but by the end of the day she got over it by gingerly crawling across it.   She probably inherited my and her Dad's fear of heights.   Ty was walking back and forth over it all day like it wasn't there.  Of course he would throw himself against the netting and fall back on his behind and just laugh. Silly us...we totally forgot to put down the rope swing so the kids could play on it (thwack my forehead).  Thanks for the good times.  Oh...and I forgot....no doubt about it, Katie definitely does NOT like rhubarb.  No she doesn't.

I noticed the rope swing was up, but I thought there was a reason for it, so I didn't say anything. Thanks for putting up the trampoline net. I feel the kiddos are much safer now. Oh, and I have a fear of heights too, so I guess Emmy doesn't have a chance. Good thing she can watch kamikaze Ty's example. :)

Any time you see the rope swing up, just pull it down. It's there for your kiddos to use.

Thanks, CK! It was nice to feel like the pie was a success for a change! :) But it was just fun to share time with the fam. It is so great that we can do so many quickie get togethers now.
