Well pleaseth me the sweet time of Easter
That maketh the leaf and the flower come out.
Bertran de Born

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter! Nick had to work all day but I was able to join my Aunt Toni and Uncle Wally at his son's home in the country west of St. Louis. We had a nice brunch, easter egg hunt and then tromped out to the barn to see the horses and watch some of the kids ride. The family has two horses, four dogs, a parrot that barks like the dogs, eight cats and two goslings! It was a farm full for sure but fun!

It was cloudy and cold but still a nice time. Nick got home from work about 7 p.m. and we enjoyed spaghetti on the couch with Bella under the quilt. Cozy and warm!

If you know my aunt and uncle you know no day is complete with out a game, or five, of Scrabble!

Naps all around - including the Beagles.

Yes that's too bad the hubs had to work. That happens to us all the time. But that farm looks awesome! And I love me a game of Scrabble.
Happy Easter!

It looks like fun, except the Easter Bunny was in Sarasota!
