What a wonderful weekend we had! Lots of things I love - family, friends, and gardening. It didn't hurt that the weather was fairly warm and sunny.
On Saturday we went to the garden center and got those pretty violas. I like them better than the bigger pansies.Then we picked up 6 chicks from the feed store. We have always ordered day-old chicks from a mail order company, so I was surprised that these were already three weeks old. We didn't really mind, because we weren't required to buy a minimum, and we didn't need 25 of the little guys:)
While Rick got the chicks settled into their new home, I played in the greenhouse and planted out the violas. What a happy time here, checking the flower beds several times a day to see what's coming up.
We were hosting Easter dinner, so I cooked all day. On the menu was ham, twice baked potatoes, roasted asparagus, deviled eggs and rolls. Our friends brought roasted brusel sprouts, salad, and a cheese and meat tray. For desert we had banana split dessert, chocolate cupcakes, and cookies. Lots of food for lots of people. We had to squeeze around the table, but we had so much fun.
Tad had a great time collecting eggs in the backyard, while the adults ran around taking pictures of him. Doesn't he look cute in the bunny ears I got him? And of course, Eric spent a good part of time reading Tad the books he got in his Easter basket :)
