We spent the morning cleaning up the wood-lot; raking and getting paths made for the Easter egg-hunt.
It was our first gorgeous spring day today.
Hours just flew by.
Who needs to go to the gym.
We needed to pick up branches, trim vines and make the paths safer for excited little three to six year olds.
If I was the Easter bunny, I'd use the old stone wall to hide a few coloured eggs.
Now we pray for sun.
Simon found us very entertaining.
"They've gone mad back there."
Here's a little flash-back...
It's lilac time at the farm and these are my three children, John, Jess & Allie at the old white pump. This photo was taken around 1990. The old farm house had burned down in the '70's but my mother continued to grow a vegetable garden on this land every summer and the kids loved to come out to run around and play and visit with their grandmother.
note...I can't be blamed for Allie's dress. She used to dress herself from age three and I don't have a clue where that dress came from. lol
I wonder if Simon's ancestors were under the pump back then.
I hope our lilac trees blossom again like they did back then.
It will soon be time to get a pic of the grandittles at this very same pump. And maybe a re-do of my favorite three people in this world.
Simon thinks..."Sure, bring them around and be sure they have some peanuts." :)
"You're shameless, Simon."
