We went camping at a nearby campground this weekend.
A few of us are excited.
Come on! let's get this thing on the road!
My daughter & her family have a new camper.
Here they are backing into their campsite.
Fishing right from our campsite
Heidi caught one!
Ryan enjoyed the playground
Ready for bed.
Whew, this camping stuff is exhausting!

Easter dawned sunny & warm.
Perfect for an egg hunt.
Everyone is getting in on the action!
Maverick's first egg hunt.
He can't seem figure out what all the excitement is about.
Its Scout's first egg hunt too!
Maverick is raiding Liddy's stuff.
Ryan working on a sugar rush
Egg hunts are exhausting!

I had babysitting duty this week, so decided to have an Easter craft evening.
First we made Bird's Nest cookies.
Next we made dirt cupcakes with gummy worms & lollipop flowers.
Not everyone is into baking but almost every kids love to paint,
so we also made bead bunnies.
Oops, one has lost a tail!
Finally we attempted string wrapped balloons.
It seemed easier than it actually was, especially for 3 year olds,
Happy (& silly) grandkids!

After such a long torturous winter,
there are finally signs that it is receding.
Bloodroot, so named because if you pluck it, it will bleed red sap.
A dewy wild crocus
I even found this little red cup fungus.
I've struggled growing asparagus here.
I tried digging a plot for it in a sunny spot,
but the grass always encroached and took over and it ended up getting mowed.
Last year I planted some in my raised bed and crossed my fingers.
Last week I spotted some promising sprouts.
Finger sized shoots!
I checked today and wow, some was at least a foot tall.
Time to harvest!
