A journal of sorts about family, hobbies and travels, mostly day trips Steve and I enjoy taking especially in my State of Virginia.
I love to especially explore and snoop in places off the beaten path.

Easter Blessings

Easter was a pretty day with plenty of sunshine ,  so we brought the feast out of doors.  Ham, corn pudding, grits, mac salad, potato salad, fresh green beans and rolls .

My son Derek and Miranda with Adalyn and Genevieve
Annette made Adalyn and Genevieve an Easter basket and this one is Genevieves that Adalyn is taking a look at.
She rather be eating candy for sure
Mom is wearing the crown that was in Adalyns basket.   At 92,  she can wear anything she likes.
 Daughter Annette
Derek trying to get Adalyns kite to fly,  looks like  he may like the idea more than Adalyn
She seems to prefer to play bad minton

Annette got this picture just right of her son - Seth as he just missed the ball.   She was spot on capturing this one.

Did not bother Genevieve a bit to wear these glasses
Such sweet little patent leather shoes worn by an adorable sweet little Addy
Many Easter Blessings for sure

Saturday with Annette and Adalyn

Annette came by Saturday with Adalyn to get me so we could ride out to Petersburg Va. .
A few antique shops we found a few items in and had lunch.  We had a wonderful time.    Adalyn is two,  loves to shop .   She wanted a  little slide projector,  the first thing she picked up to purchase.   I found and old wooden coca cola bottle carrier and wooden window pane that I will use to mosaic a scene on for the porch.
Annette stopped at sheetz for two large coffees ,  I am sure mine was a thousand calories

iced with whipped cream, chocolate and so good

Adalyn ready to ride

very nice family owned restaurant.  great hand shaped lean meat burgers and home made french fries.
Adalyn looking around
she found something she enjoyed playing with - a corn shucker
she is such a doll,  she wanted it.

Annette thinking about a deal

back home  after the morning out,  I picked some forsythia to bring inside.

daffodils growing beside it.    the moss is plentiful as you can see.

I planted so many in the woods last year and this is the only one that has come up.
