a beautiful weekend

It was an absolutely beautiful day up here today, so we decided to go on a little walk. Our dog is 15 years old, so she rarely has any enthusiasm for long walks. But today she must have been feeling the spring fever, because she was ready to go.
The river was rushing fast with all the melted snow added to it. We stayed close by for a while listening to the music it played.

After our walk we made handprint lilies.





Easy and fun. Trace and cut handprints out of white cardstock (one handprint for each flower you want). Next cut out the green leaves, as per above picture. Curl the fingers and the leaves. Wrap the handprint around to make the flower, then secure it to a green pipe cleaner with tape. Add leaves to the stem and attach a yellow pipe cleaner inside.

And of course we colored some eggs. Just a few this year... using food coloring and wax crayons.
Wishing you all a very Happy Easter tomorrow. We'll be enjoying some time with family and friends. An Easter egg hunt, brunch and time spent together. It just doesn't get any better than that.
