Easter at the Farm
Shortarmguy.com Diary Update for April 4, 2010
We drove down to the farm for Easter Weekend. Uncle Jerry wanted to do something special for us upon our arrival, so he ran over a cow with his tractor. Only you vegetarians out there have the right to call this cruel.
Grandma Leona was excited that we came to visit, until she learned that we brought Grandma Linda with us. After that, things became pretty tense.
While the two grandmas duked it out in the driveway, the rest of us went to play on the swingset.
One of these days, we'll figure out these fancy schmancy swing things!
It was a bit windy on the farm. Grandma Linda always makes sure her hood is on extra tight when this happens. Miss Sheri wanted to make her feel at home, so she did the same. Personally, I didn't think it was that windy so I just made fun of them instead.
The boys were excited to do some egg coloring. I told them this year we were going to do something special and color some bacon as well, but for some reason no-one wanted to participate in that activity.
We had the opportunity to go visit Miss Sheri's Aunt Marian on Saturday. I'm not sure that she was as excited to see us as we were to see her.
We made it to the sunrise service at church on Easter Morning. We tried to explain to the boys that they needed to enter the church and be silent, but for some reason that explanation never seems to work.
It's great hiding Easter Baskets on the farm. When we're at home, we don't have nearly as much manure to work with.
Sunny was feeling bad that he didn't get to participate in the Easter festivities, so he contributed a special chocolate egg for the occasion. Sadly, there was no candy coating to be found.
