To start off the weekend we had a work day at Marymine's on Saturday. All the kids showed up to help get things in order for Easter.
I pulled weeds out of the borders and planted all the pots around the pool with blooming flowers. Lauren cleaned Marymine's house, Cody cleaned around his house, Colt fixed the potholes in the road, & repaired a leaky waterline from the well. Marymine and Ali went shopping for all the food and drink. Saturday was a long day for all of us, we finally finished up with the chores around 9:30 pm.
Easter turned out to be a beautiful day. All the kids got an Easter basket.
Pistols at ten paces works especially well if Nanny is the only one who got pistols in her Easter basket...
The kids played corn hole and other games, where the rivalry was intense.
Meanwhile the dogs went swimming in the pool and generally ran around.
|Willie (look at that form), Duke, Dingo, Dozer, & Peanut|
Dozer (Tyler's) lab kept wanting someone to throw the retriever dummy in the pool so he could dive in and retrieve it. Duke (Colt's) choc lab decided he wasn't waiting, grabbed the dummy from Dozer and he flung it into the pool. He did it over and over for Dozer to fetch. Gotta love that Duke, he's an ol soul.
We filled our plates with BBQ tri-tip, and all the fix'ins and took them out to the picnic table by the pool. As we were starting to set to, Cody began laughing. He looked at Lauren and said, "I know you're the one who wrote Happy Easter on the blackboard in cursive, because you forgot to erase the tiny printed Easter above it..." We all looked and sure enough she had. Nothing much gets past this crew.
