Spotted the Easter Bunny, and family get together number three.

Where are we today ?
          A beautiful sunrise this morning through the trees and over the neighbor's barn, even not too cool today either. Mostly sunny and temps to 20 C (68F), whats not to like about that.
       A couple of nice walkabouts this morning, enjoying the peace and quiet and fresh country air is wonderful. Near the edge of the bush I think I found the Easter Bunny! Saw a bunch of what looked like tiny brown eggs, but don't think they have hatched yet?
is this the Easter Bunny?
looks like Tulips coming up
at the edge of the bush in the shade all day
 still a bit of snow.
nice walking the edge of the fields
quiet entertainment
      Then mid morning we helped our hostess Sandy get ready for the Easter feast here. She roasted a Turkey and a chicken, lots of nice gravy, creamy whipped potatoes, mixed veggies, broccoli salad, cheese and veggie tray. More of Suzie's family, parents, siblings, a niece and nephew and their little ones too. 19 expected today for a 1 pm meal.
       Now we have a large turkey, chicken carcass and a some drippings, will freeze that and make another pot of soup in the near future, need to get through the bean soup first.
ready for the family
the feast is ready, dig in and help yourself,
buffet  style is easiest
Oh so tasty
Pecan pie, cupcakes, ice cream and fresh fruit for desert,
I opted for a tiny bit of fresh fruit and ice cream
         Then time to get out for some fresh air and exercise, playing on the swings and baseball practice, helped work off lunch.
       Then as always happens conversation about all the wonderful things we have all been doing. Family gatherings are so much fun.
       Another couple walkabouts to wrap up the day, everybody gone and then we can call it another fine day, no supper tonight again. But did manage to sit outside for a while and enjoy our books in the sun until about 7:30 pm.
       Tomorrow another small get together with the rest of my family. And think we will have seen just about everyone this spring.
       Hope you enjoyed some great weather on this Easter sunday too.
       Thanks again for stopping by and joining in on our fun.

  1. Looks like the Easter Bunny to me :) You do eat very very well and both manage to stay so slim. Good on you. Lucky you with that great weather.

    1. Loving the great weather. Most everything we eat is home cooked, not prepared food. Eating at regular hours and portion control really does make a difference.

  6. I remember those days of family dinners... sure were some great cooks in my childhood... G'mas and Aunts. Then we all grew apart when the old ones died ... the new ones didn't like each other much ... lol?

    I envy those of you who have great family get togethers. You're very lucky ~ that everyone gets along...
