Dear Readers, if there are any of you left...

It has been a busy few months here in Paradise.  Life has a way of often getting in the way of our lives.  I am trying to amend that and live more of life.  I turn 70 in June and, yes, I can feel my body slowing down.  My knee is a constant reminder and I have resigned myself to the fact that it is going to have to be replaced sooner than later.  Meanwhile, I walk as often as I can and stay as active as I can.  I do have to admit, I have become quite smitten with those lovely things I call Nana naps.

Today, the Grands were all off school as was their mama.  With Papa in charge, the Grands and he dyed Easter eggs.  This has been a tradition with them since all were little toddlers.  Here are a few candid shots for your viewing pleasure.

 After we cleaned up the kitchen, wiped up the excess dye, and washed pairs of hands, we headed down to the little lake to fish.  Papa bought all 3 of the Grands fishing poles....the boys are small rods and reels and Leighton's is a princess one.  The boys had taken fishing classes and had been begging Papa to take them to the lake which is pretty much behind our house.  Today was the more practice in the swimming pool.  No big fish stories but sure had lots of fun.

We headed back to the house for a refreshing dip in the pool and lunch with some play time included.
They'll be back on Easter along with their Daddy for our traditional egg hunt, baskets and brunch.  Hoping you and yours have a wonderful and blessed Easter.

Love the "boys & the bunny" photos. Leighton is such a cutie with those ears. Hoppy Easter to you. Glad you're blogging again. (x2)
