Once we got home i put a ham in the oven to take to Eric's for his bday dinner. Got started on making potato salad and frosting the cake I baked the day before. Found a delicious recipe for carrot cake that starts with a yellow box mix and you add the goodies.
About 1630 we headed over to Karen's for a bit to say Happy Easter and catch up on her week and she on ours. We headed back home and then Ken came up with the idea to have a fire out back. We texted Karen and she walked over and the boys joined us for awhile. They enjoyed s'more pop tarts as I didn't have all the makings for smorf's (our name for smores) ..

An hour or so of the fire and I asked the boys what they wanted for a late dinner. Ham and potato salad for Mason and cheeseburgers for Jackson. Then off to bed for everyone.

Friday morning was get ready to go home time. I made sandwiches for lunch knowing we'd be stopping somewhere at about 1300 to eat. Luckily that ended up being at Hope Valley one of the prettiest spots on the drive.

We pulled into Eric's house about 1600. A little later than we planned but oh well. Eric had been fishing and pulled in just after we parked. Seth and a few of his friends a little later too. We just enjoyed sitting outside for quite awhile chatting and catching up. Mason and Jackson left to go stay the night at Jackson's house and Saturday they'll be out on a boat for the day..tough life..haha.

Eventually it was time for dinner and then cake. According to everyone it was delicious. Finally we called it a night, by this time Ken needed to lay down and take some pressure off his neck. This was the longest day so far without lying down for a bit and he was feeling it.

Saturday morning found us both awake at 0515 so we started the coffee and then spent some time reading what our friends are up to! we've talked about what to do today which included seeing Ken's mom down the hill but then I remembered she usually gets her hair done on Saturday so we'll call and see what's she's up to. On a Saturday we don't want to be down the hill for too long as the traffic is crazy. We'll see. Tomorrow we'll move up the hill about 9 miles and spend Adam's Birthday with him and his mom and dad!
Have a great day everyone..I know we will!
