Happy Easter everyone!!  So glad that it was nice out today and there was no rain . . . we were able to have a fun little Easter egg hunt in my grandparent's backyard.  After lunch, we went out to the Visitor Center at Saylorville to check out the Butterfly Garden but it hasn't been planted yet.  Katie had a blast when we walked down to the beach.  She probably threw 100 rocks into the lake.  :)

More oldies!!!

My uncle, Gary, was kind enough to send me some more oldies to add to the collection.  I really can't tell you how much fun I am having looking at these.  It's so great to go back and relive these memories.  Thanks Gary!!

Oldies but goodies . . .

I'm helping my grandma and grandpa put together a slide show for their 60th wedding anniversary next year.  I want it to be very special for them so we went through all of her photo albums and pulled pictures on Friday.  She might be the most organized person I know . . . every album is labeled and dated and all the pictures are in chronological order.  It was so amazing to be able to go back in time and see them when they were young and how much they enjoyed life and how great of a family they had.  Looking back at my dad when he was young was so great . . . they really had a great time doing things as a family.  Below are some of my favorites . . . I'm only through 1992 so there will be more to come.  If you want to see all the pics so far, click HERE.
