Looking Back on Easter Sunday on Easter Monday!

The weather on Easter Sunday was so warm and nice and really unbelievable. The temperatures reached near 80 on Saturday and Sunday. The Easter Bunny left this sweet little metal bunny cart on my table with some gift cards for two fabric stores. I guess that rabbit knows how to please Lady Linda! Just in time for an upcoming retreat.

My friend Nancy stopped by my house to wish me a Happy Easter and she left a large basket filled with lots of gardening fun items-gloves, seeds, and tools.

I thought it would be really fun to put together a fun STORK Easter basket for Angie and Chris. They are collecting Stork items for their baby shower. It turned out really cute.  I wanted to thank my friend Erica at Golden Egg Vintage helped connect me with Laurie's Etsy site E is for Ethel. I ordered a set of 4 vintage blue stork candle holders that are so cute. When Laurie found out my big plan, so sent me some extra stork goodies. Wasn't that so sweet! I love Etsy people. Thanks so much for your kindness and the treats Laurie.

I love the stock ceramic planter. They are collecting them and didn't have a stork planter! Yeah for mom finding one in Troutdale.

Of course Ava had to have a basket too filled with lots of fun stuff! Her she is in her Easter dress off to find the eggs that Jimmy and Linda got to hide in her backyard. Perfect weather for the hunt!

It was so warm after the hunt and the sun was shining bright in the pretty backyard, that her daddy filled the swimming pool and then had some fun with the hose! Chris was so warm, he had an umbrella out to provide some shade! True Oregonian!

Ava and her Grandma Kathy. Grandma's are always ready with a nice warm towel when needed!

After the backyard fun, we headed off to Salty's Restaurant on the Columbia River for Easter Sunday late brunch. Jimmy found the crab and oysters.

Miss Ava enjoying her dinner with the family...lots for a little girl to choose from.

YUMMY....Jimmy found the chocolate fountain~chocolate and fresh strawberries!

Chris and Angie taking looking pretty content and happy!

Great picture of Grandma Kathy. Everyone was having a great cooking for these gals this weekend! As you can see we were all having a fun time together. Hope your family had a great time too.

Hi Linda!

What a fun day you all seem to have had!

I can't believe it is so warm for you when we're snowing most days here still!

Thanks so much for visiting and for your comments....wanted to let you know you weren't having trouble commenting on my posts- just a few recently (usually devotional ones) were comment-free - I turned comments off.

Did you know you are a no-reply blogger, so I couldn't email you directly to comment on your comment? Sometimes folks are and don't even realize it!

I normally wouldn't have posted something like this publically, but it was the only way to let you know not to feel bad your comments werent' going through- it was me not allowing them for a few posts!

Take care and hugs to you!!

PS Love pretty Ava's Easter dress!
