This picture reminded me of my childhood days of growing up on the farm. You had lots of space where you didn't have to worry about your neighbors being really close and maybe didn't like you for some reason.
We always had special holiday family get-togethers, which also included aunts, uncles, and cousins. We would have ball games of one kind or another, which ever we thought would be the most fun. If it was in the winter months, we would go coasting.
My mother would make home made ice cream during the spring, summer, and fall when we had company. Then we would have hot chocolate and cookies when we came in from coasting.
We had all kinds of animals, dogs, cats, pigs, chickens, cows, horses. I can remember my dad farming with a team of horses and going to town in the wagon. We never wanted for anything. you ate what was fixed for whatever meal, and you learned to like a lot of things that was grown in the garden. One of my favorite things is fresh peas and new potatoes in a cream sauce.
The holidays are meant for family to be together, even celebration of birthdays. I want to take this time to wish everybody a HAPPY EASTER WEEKEND . I hope your weekend is fill with sunshine and warm weather. We had such a fast moving storm going through with high winds and heavy rain yesterday, They said that it was just a straight wind, but there were trucks blown off the highway and other storm location.
Enjoy your weekend.
