This weekend Mr. Byrd’s great grandmother celebrated 98 years. So we made the drive down to see her and other family members. It was great. Their yard is one of my favorite places on earth. It’s so pretty and being there is so easy. There’s no rush, you just sit and talk.
The girls had a blast as well. The little one kept coming out of the house with cake or cookies. Every single trip inside resulted in a chocolate smeared mouth. I jokingly mentioned it to his grandmother who looked right at me and said, “I know. I’m the one that keeps giving it to her”. It made me chuckle because that’s what grandmothers are supposed to do, spoil and love on their grandchildren.
My children are blessed that they got to spend Saturday with their great grandmother and great-great grandmother.
And don’t worry, what those two didn’t provide in spoiling all the aunts and uncles that were there made up for.
Sunday we had to work in the yard after our leisurely day on Saturday. We lost a lot of plants this winter in the crazy Texas ice storms but as you can tell, all our azaleas survived and are thriving.
That’s one of the things that I love the most about where we live. This time of year there are vibrant pink and white bushes lining our street. It’s beautiful and almost like spring is throwing itself a great big welcome back party.
The azaleas were better last year but after all the ice this winter, it’s still a refreshing sight.
We got all the dead plants removed from the yard and now I’m even more thankful for the bright blooms right now that hide the bare spots.
After a short nap / rest time we were up and going again, riding bikes to the park to play before baths and bed.
It was a great weekend. Spring is here. The days are beautiful and after this winter, I’m glad we get to celebrate life.
Don’t forget that tomorrow is April Fool’s Day!
Here’s a little joke that you still have time to play on someone –
