Awesome Easter with Family

My sister, Sandy, brother-in-law, Dan and niece, Shawna arrived at our house on Good Friday.  It was so good to see them!  We had a wonderful Easter and visit with them!  We celebrated Jack's first birthday on Saturday.  Then Easter Sunday we woke up and went to church as a family.  The service was wonderful.  We came back to our house and feasted on lamb, ham, mashed potatoes, green beans, applesauce, biscuits, strawberry cake and chocolate pudding pie.  The grandboys loved their Easter gifts and chocolate!

Jack looking dapper in his seersucker suit!  Owen was too busy playing with his Easter gifts.  You can just see him on the right of the picture.

Look at Shawna all decked out in her Easter finery!  I love that hat!!

Monday we went to the Carolina Raptor Center.  The grandboys really loved looking at all the birds. We had been there about 6 or 7 years ago and they had alot more birds there.  I loved the owls!  We had lunch at Tupelo Honey in South End.  Then we went to the Sleepy Poet, which is antique mall.  Monday night Megan and Ken had all of us over for dinner.  Ken had made his own Kielbasa and he smoked it in his smoker for us.  We had a wonderful time with them!

Tuesday Shawna, Sandy and I went shopping.  We went to World Market, Pier 1 Imports and Ollie's.  My niece really isn't into clothes shopping, she likes unusual things.  Dan and Sandy treated us all to dinner at Longhorn Steak House for dinner!  It was really fun!

Wednesday Sandy, Dan and Shawna packed up and went home.  I was sad they had to leave.  What a great visit we had and fun times!  Memories were made for sure!! My sister and I stayed up quite a few nights until after midnight chatting!  Love her!!!

Sherri, I love your photos. The little seersucker suits are adorable aren't they. My daughter's had some dresses made of that when they were toddlers. Glad you had such a blessed Easter. xoxo,Susie

What precious family time. Today I'm catching up with my gorgeous niece and nephew who I've missed terribly whilst I've been on vacation but I have a feeling that my nephew is only keen to see me because he hopes I managed to get his turtle toys in the US!


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
