Weekend In Review

Easter this year was spent in Bemidji for our family.  We left Friday after eating Steak and potatoes only to realize we had forgot to bring the sewing machines along so we could drop them off in Bemidji to get fixed.  When we arrived the younger girls had lots of fun with their cousins, actually they had fun with them all weekend long and we unpacked and relaxed.

Saturday we took the kids and went to the tanker base for the DNR (Our friend works there as a dispatcher) and got to climb inside the plane including the cockpit.  From there we headed out to look at trailers - but we didn't buy one and we checked out the new Menards where the youngest three got balloons. From there it was time to pick up a few groceries and than back to grandma's for some more play time.  Somewhere in there I also helped grandpa with the picnic table he was building.

Sunday morning we were going to go back to Walmart but never made it.  Went to church and than back to the house where we had a big turkey dinner for 22.  After that the kids did an Easter egg hunt and we passed out stockings (they were left over from Christmas.) We than finished packing up and headed for the gas station.  It only cost $105 to fill the tank. A stop at McDonalds so the kids could play it was off to home.

Once home we unpacked and had another Easter egg hunt and soon it was bed time.

Today has brought warmth and the kids have decided it is shorts weather.  Even David is running around outside with nothing on but a diaper. - scratch that, he just took it off...
