Easter (Day 12)

This is Rachel with her Easter basket. She didn't want candy this year, so she got a couple movies (Slumdog Millionaire and Marley & Me), clothes, two bathing suits, pjs, a small bag of chocolate covered pretzels and a few other small things. We stayed at my brother-in-law's house Saturday night. Thanks again, guys, for having us.
After taking flowers to my mom's grave, we went to Fred's parents house for an Easter egg hunt and dinner. They have so much's perfect for a big Easter egg hunt with all the kids. Ferris was as happy as a pig in poop there. So many trees to sniff and claim as his own. So many birds to chase. He's a tired doggie tonight!
Fred in his element. What can I say? He's a great cook. The kitchen was a noisy, crowded place today, and I avoided it. So I'm not really sure what all he helped his mom with, besides the corn, which is what he's stirring here. In the crock pot is home made broccoli soup, which Rachel loves. The red stuff in the other pan is cherries for ham loaf. She also had regular ham, roasted chicken, mashed potatoes, lima beans, rolls with home made much food! It was a great day with lots of family.
Coming home from the cemetary we drove through downtown Harrisburg. Driving down State Street/Walnut Street brings back so many memories of driving to my grandmother's house in Lemoyne, crossing the Walnut Street (before it was closed after Agnes) and Market Street bridges.
