Easter Update and more

For Easter festivities we did the ritual egg coloring, hiding, finding, eating.  The 'city folks' put on an egg 'hunt' at the park where the boys enjoyed gathering as many plastic eggs as possible to fill their baskets. As Ben knelt down in front of a pile of eggs another little boy plowed over him and crushed Ben and his basket.  A bloody lip and a broken basket didn't stop him from gathering the stash in front of him.  
Cloudy had an egg hunt at school the Thursday before, and when I went to pick him up the ladies said "oh your poor son".  They thought it was funny that he was very laid back about his egg finding, while the other kids ran and gathered as many as possible, Cloudy would pick one up and check it out before moving on to the next.  They said they redistributed eggs so he ended up with some.  

The weather was so nice Easter weekend we inflated the yard bowling toys and pulled the cover off the pool while Pete grilled a rack of lamb.

This is Megan.  Cloudy REALLY likes her.  He sees her outside, and runs out hollering "HI MEGAN!" and stands by our fence chatting her up.   I invited her over Friday afternoon to fly kites and the kids had the BEST time.  I missed the best shot: Cloudy was standing next to her and he asked her to hold his hand.  It was SO CUTE!

Saturday morning, I wake up and see this!!!!! 
Karen (pete's cousin) was THREE miles from our house.  I instantaneously started blowing up her phone with text messages and finally at lunch time, she agreed to see me, as long as I would stop stalking her.  We grabbed some barbecue and had a picnic while we visited with her for bit.  It was so good to see here again!

Yesterday afternoon, I planted the rest of my garden, and pulled out the last of the radishes.  Not knowing what do do with 2 dozen radishes we quickly found a pickling recipe and I'm excited about these.  

I also made oatmeal blueberry-infused-cranberry cookies that are amazing!  and a pineapple upside down cake.  

Which leads us to this morning.  I hired a sitter and we went to the trails down the road for a morning run.  We saw a few deer, and lots of birds.  The run was really nice, and the hills are harder than expected.  Will definitely go back her to run! Especially if I keep baking.
