I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. Our celebration was a little different then the traditional celebration,
First, my son-in-law had open heart surgery today. They did 5 by-passes so we continue to ask for your prayers. They lost one of their dogs on Friday so it wasn't quite like they wanted to have Easter. My daughter is trying to keep a normal routine for my youngest grandson while his dad is in the hospital.
We did celebrate Easter and our oldest son's birthday on Friday. He had to go back after spending a week here at home on Saturday. He was a baby sitter on Friday spending time with his three nephews. He was tired after being with them so that the girls could do some shopping. It didn't seem like he should be 50 years old. The boys hunted Easter Eggs that evening at our son's house. We had hamburgers on the grill, pasta salad, broccoli and cauliflower salad, relishes, devil eggs, and strawberries and angel food cake just to name part of it. That is the menu my oldest wanted for his birthday. My daughter-in-law tries to do for him as he doesn't get home that often. Today he was suppose to be headed back to Texas to work. I don't know how long he will be there.
The picture is of our 15 year old grandson welding on the new arena fence. They have just 5 panels left to go. He had welding in his shop class in school. , plus one of the others that makes his living welding helped give him some more pointers. He learns very quickly. Of course grandma likes to brag on the boys. He reminded me today that we have 35 days until the first horse show.
I spent the day with him and his brother while they were out of school. They had dental appointments so I took them and their mom met me there after she got off work. I was ready to come home after the day of running around. The weather was cold and drizzly all day. It doesn't help the back when it is that kind of weather.
I did eat lunch with hubby on Easter at the nursing home. They had a nice lunch for the ones who were there. It was an enjoyable day with the sunshine and warmer.
Today was the home opener for the Kansas City Royals. They won. I bet it was rather chilly sitting there watching the game. It never did really rain, just drizzly and foggy. It was just enough to make you run your windshield wipers.
I will try to keep you up dated with our family. All prayers are greatly appreciated. Take care.
