Easter and the Week Following

Happy Easter! (What do you mean I'm late???)

We had a lovely Easter. Very laid back and not too much going on. The kids had a lot of fun finding their baskets and their eggs.

The day before we were at Elisabeth's 6th birthday party. Both kids had a great time. The weather was so nice we were able to go outside and play too!

Ella had her first soccer practice on Wednesday. She has her first game on Tuesday. The kids are so cute, it's going to be fun watching them play. I'll bring my camera, don't worry.

Yesterday we went for a 3-hour bike ride. Our first of the year. It was the first time I'd ridden my new bike outside and I absolutely LOVE it!! It's so comfortable! My neck doesn't get stiff and my butt doesn't go numb. I even rode around our neighborhood tonight just by myself because it was fun!

I think we rode about 25 miles. Found a Dairy Queen at the end (half-way) and had some ice cream. Then we rode back. My legs were very sore last night!! But they were pretty much all better by today.

We've been busy getting final details of some of the landscaping around the house. We've come to a few conclusions so we're going to get started on some of the edging and rocking around the house. Hopefully the fence will be in within the next two weeks. I'm excited to get my garden going! My seedlings all started sprouting this last week too!

There was a grass fire on the edge of town tonight. I heard a bunch of sirens and looked out the window. It took me a while to find where the smoke was coming from. Didn't look like much. About 15-30 minutes later it was very large!

They said on the news that there were 12 fire departments tending to the grass fire. It burned about 85 acres. Didn't burn any buildings and no one was hurt. They had it out within a couple hours. (That's Target in the left of the bottom picture.)

I know that I've been totally ignoring my other blog lately too. Sorry, I just haven't felt like getting it taken care of and I know that's no excuse, but too bad it's my blog. :)

I think I'll get back on it here soon. I've just been so busy doing fun and some not so fun things that I seem to forget about it.

Good pictures of Easter. Looks like the kids were having fun. Glad the weather has been good for being outside. Can't wait for your garden this summer. If you make apple sauce this year I want to put my order in!!!!
Hope Ella has fun at her game. Wish I was going to be up around the cities, I would drive over and watch her. Maybe next time.
Keep exercising. You're doing awesome.
