Spring Weather

The boys are very special . Jacob in the red sweatshirt is my oldest grandson who will be 10 in June. Ethan in the red hat will be 4 in August and Matt in the dark blue will be 5 in October. The se were taken Easter Sunday. Both boys had buckets full of Easter Eggs and had so much fun playing.
Today has been a slow moving day after my husband's cousin wedding last night. The day turned out to be a beautiful day after a rainy start. She made a very pretty bride and we got to visit with family from California, Hiawai, and closer to home. Some we hadn't seen for quite a while as the saying goes anymore you see them at weddings or funerals. People don't get together like they use to. Every body seems to be to busy and in a hurry.
We took a scenic tour this afternoon while the weather was sunny and nice. You needed a sweater, but that was o.k. We went up to Clarinda, Iowa, cutting across to Bedford, Iowa before coming home. The farmers are starting to work in the fields, and the trees are budding out with some color. I would like to go see the Dog Woods in South Missouri, but it isn't possible at the moment. We have to many weddings, 50th wedding anniversary, and 50th class reunion that doesn't include the birthdays or graduations.
You get to see the Amish planting their crops the old fashion way with a team of horses. I can remember when my dad farmed that way. You remember the old fashion 4th of July celebrations, the small town country fairs, taking your embroidery work, or a quilt that you made to be judged. The food that you use to eat that they now say you can't do. We never got sick. I, also, remember the outside movies that we would go and watch. You set on your blankets in the grass. It was also a time to get together with your family, friends, and neighbors. Now everybody is just to busy.
Our street has been closed because of putting in some new concrete drains, and etc. It has been rather nice to have the peace and quiet. It doesn't sound like a race track.
We are suppose to have warm weather this week. I have been trying to decide if I want to plant some flowers. That will be for another day.
