Easter Weekend

Cousin Janet, my precious sister, and me.

We had a wonderful dinner out with family on Saturday evening. It was great to meet my cousins husband. They met and married in the UK and were out here for a visit . My sister and her family ,as well as my dad ,joined us for delicious Italian food and an evening of good company.The younger generation of cousins had a great time Jay boarding and enjoying their pizzas and Italian ice cream! Fun was had by all!

Easter Sunday we decided not to attend church as we had been on Good Friday and the church was overflowing. We had a quiet morning and went on for a celebratory lunch with some special friends. The meal was superb: roast leg of lamb, roast chicken and potatoes , butternut, carrots, and cauliflower and broccoli in cheese sauce. A meal fit for a king!

After lunch the dads set off for the nearby green belt area to hide some Easter eggs for the kids. Just what we needed after that wonderful meal!
Nothing like enjoying Gods creation on an Autumn afternoon !

The green belt has a little waterfall and stream, so the kids could not resist a swim in the cold mountain water and best of all...there is a swing over the rock pool!

We headed back to their home for chocolate brownies and ice cream, rounded off with coffee. We truly had a great day.
