       After everyone left we crashed here in Aurora after 10 pm way past our normal bedtime, What a wonderful fun day and so nice to see them all together. Thats 43 relatives in 2 days time to take it easy again for a while and recuperate .
        Up early this morning as the grands get ready to head off to school chat with them for a bit and waiting until after 9 am to miss the Toronto rush hour traffic to head home.

        Shortly after 9:30 we hit the road back to Plattsville, about a 2 hour drive. no major traffic just a few slow downs for us. Back home for a light lunch.
Plattsville to Aurora and back
         After lunch I fired up the Ferris lawn mower to do a bit of mowing, parts of the yard that needed it for now. Just a couple of acres. soon the rest will need it with the rain expected in the next few days. Today was nice about 60 f (15c) with alight breeze and clear blue cloudless skies. Not too shabby at all?
this Ferris Mower is wonderful 
looks so nice when freshly cut
the view from our patio 
across the road behind our coach
no breeze here, almost hot in the afternoon sun.
      We did get a couple of hours of quality reading time in that we both enjoy. In the warm sun and no breeze was perfect. Not really hungry tonight after 2 days of feasting, so supper was our regular salad with some leftover cold chicken, a few rice crackers and garlic humus. This was perfect, sure hit the spot, nice and light, and so very tasty.
oh yeah, this did the trick
        That was our 2 days winding up some wonderful family time with a total of socializing with 43 relatives. And now back home to relax a bit and tae care of a few more appointments that we want to get out of the way as well.
       Thanks so much for stopping on by and hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend and  maybe spent some time with family and or friends, or even quiet times are nice as well.
