My Birthday Weekend

I am sharing my birthday with Easter, once again.

I don't mind. A holiday full of chocolate...candy...egg hunts!

We spent Saturday at my Momma's house. The boys went fishing. The girls enjoyed getting to know my Momm'as new neighbors. The Short Chic even shared her Grandma's carrots.

To celebrate my birthday, we had a bonfire and roasted hot dogs and marshmallows. Nothing warms up a spring evening like a backyard fire! Before the bonfire, we had an egg hunt. The Son brought his friend to the party, he had never roasted a marshmallow before. How is that possible?  Don't worry, he had a great teacher, now he can't say he has never roasted a marshmallow!

After our meal, The Husband and the Guest went back out fishing. My kiddo's and I took a walk around my small town. The Short Chic wanted to see the creek. It was nice to get out and walk around a bit and enjoy the warm weather.

The layout of the town is the same as it always has been; four blocks long, six blocks wide. Most of the houses are the same. Of course, there are different people living in them. Growing up, you knew everyone and their truck they drove. Not living there on a daily basis, I have lost that. Thank you to everyone who stopped and said hello!

And I should say..The Husband...who went fishing....he did not bring home any fish. He took some photos of fish he caught. BUT, you wanna know what he brought home...TICKS!  That is correct.  Ticks!

Today, when we got home from my Momma's The Husband tricked me into going to the store with him. He wanted me to pick out my own flowers for this wonderful topsy planter that he made for me today {pinterest inspired, by the way. I love it that we spent this Easter day planting new flowers. 

Happy Easter to all of you!
