Easter and Ice

We had a beautiful Easter day here today...even if there was still a lot of ice on the lake.  It's been consistently cold so the ice isn't in any hurry to leave.  This is the view from church if you can believe that!  We had 17 for dinner.  We commented that Thanksgiving and Easter meals are so yummy.

 Several of the cousins were here.
 We had an egg hunt in the yard.  Each of the kids had a different colored egg to look for.
 Then, down to the beach where Jake and Katy were brave enough to go in just to check for cold.
 Notice all but Adelaide were without shoes.  It was a nice day but not THAT nice!  The beach looked like a moonscape.
 The girls helped SIL hunt for fossils.  He is a geologist so going to the beach with him is a totally different experience.  You don't slather yourself with oil and lay on a towel.  You learn fascinating things.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful time was had by all! It's great to get together on these occasions and celebrate family, isn't it! Seriously children and water and temperatures, they just don't feel cold like us adults. I remember a cartoon that shows a child muffled in layers of clothing, he turns to his friend and says, "Mum was feeling cold this morning!". Lol. Your SIL would love to visit our shore, we live in a world renowned fossil area, right now we are trying to stop a marina being built over the top in these sites.....seriously money always tries to obliterate whatever is in its way. Your lake looks amazing as always. Hope you are finding things a little smoother now. Great to here from you, only 22 days to go!

  2. Looks like an amazing family time.
