My parents finally decided to come back to Michigan after a long,warm winter in sunny Florida. They were able to spend Easter weekend with us. I always have house projects for my dad to do and my mom spends her time accomodating the kids every wish while cooking or baking in my kitchen. They are always productive weekends when they are around.
I laugh when I catch myself saying "productive weekends". It takes me back to my childhood. My father is not a sit down type of man. He is always working..always. I remember as a kid being asked regularly, "what have you done productive today"? This was his way of justifying to my sister and me that we needed to head out to do something. It could be anything from hauling a load of wood (to heat the house) to clearing a road in the woods.
We had to take a break from odd jobs to go to our church for an Easter egg hunt. Love that they divide the hunt up by age. It took the little ones forever to gather their eggs and the older kids were not allowed to take them. It was so fun to watch.
