It was Egg-stra Fun!

I figured out that I have known Yvette for 9 1/2 years...but we haven't seen each other in nearly 4 years. We've done a fair job of keeping in touch...sometimes life, and a 45 minute drive, has a way of converting personal friendships into email/blog friendships.

Friday night, Yvette sent me an invitation to bring the kids out to an annual Egg Hunt at a local church. I was a little hesitant...I've told you what happened at our last Egg hunt, but with Donald out of town, I'm all about getting out of the house to pass some time. Yvette assured me that this would be worth the drive.

It was so worth the drive!! They had several inflatables, horse rides, egg hunts and lunch. The kids had a blast and Yvette and I were able to speak face to face. It really was a wonderful day!






As you can see, no day would be complete without a little 'Grumpypants' time.

Be sure to hop on over to Yvette's post to see more pictures from our day together.

Ella loves to take pictures. She asked if she could go take a picture of the Easter Bunny. She took a fantastic picture...then she and CJ (Yvette's daughter) had their own little photo shoot. It was very entertaining to watch...and the pictures weren't half bad.

Those girls really hit it off!

Evidence of a good time:



Yvette and I have decided that we simply must not let four years pass before we see each other again...in true banker's terminology, Yvette declared that we should have at least Quarterly Meetings.

It's a date, my friend.

What a sweet, sweet day you had. The pictures of the kids in the car on the way home is classic. I'm so glad you were able to have such a great day and see your old friend!

It was such great fun! I'm so glad you decided to come out. Those pictures are hillarious!! They really did a good job, didn't they?? Looks like we may have some future "bloggers" - or whatever it is that they will be doing in their day - on our hands..

I've got to go get some tissue to dry my eyes now....Sniz called me old :( **sniff-sniff**

I prefer the term "long time friend" LOL!!
