Spring flings....

easter springtime fun at Casini Ranch on the Russian River. After all the calamities we look back and realize...yes, we did have fun...right Marian???10 stitches on the outside and 2 on the inside...no nerve or tendon damage...regardless of injury he always had a hot pot of coffee brewing in the cold morning. i thank you for spoiling me James!!!
Egg hunt madness revisited on Sat. Still no Bunny love for Liam...would you with an over 6 foot tall bunny??? I wasn't sure he was going to get down to hunt for eggs but he did eventually and the bunny stayed his distance from Liam.We made a quick trip into Guerneville...we were in need of Starbucks in the afternoon and a hunt for vintage goodies. The day we came in our favorite vintage lace spot was having a 1/2 off day...score!!! On our way back to the campground they had a donkey and miniature horse petting farm going on. The animals made a car full of ladies squeal with gleee...they were so darn cute...the baby donkeys were 1 week and 3 weeks old. Liam wanted one for his backyard. And the caretaker put Liam on one of the miniature horses.i was proud of him that he trusted her enough for that. Then we came back and all the kids colored eggs along with some adults....Cathy too!!!ahh yes we can't forget the aupair...she worked hard this weekend...twins were added to the mix for her but not identical...lucky for her!!! On Easter morning we had the hunt for the baskets...big cousin helped the little ones...Hayden's wingman Darren was not himself easter morning...it was sad because i knew how much he enjoys the holiday but after a puke/nap session he was good to go.Because it was so cold at night we had to make sure our wood supply didn't run out...i just love the way the trees frame John and Liam...


In the kids baskets were some kites that Diane and I picked up at the dollar store. Flying the kites in the late afternoon sun was just a great finish to Easter...They had so much fun flying them. i did forget to say that Granddaddy showed with Lizzy, Katie and Michael in the morning after they saw Bodega Bay five times. They were a little lost...He brought the Brunch and i cooked it up...nice time...we even had the hot cross buns...yum! Speaking of yum...us girls found a scrumptiious yummy bakery in Duncan Mills...so it was nice to have warm pastries with James great coffee in the morning....sooooo
after stitches, pink eye scare, coldness of the mornings, puke session...all in all it was still another camping adventure...

I have scrapped though...will post banner soon and pics from our other camping trip...can you beleive 3 trips already...
