I stayed true to my vow to drink away my ankle pain and spent the day being served first a bloody mary, then wine, then some more wine, then a couple of gin and tonics and then maybe a beer or two, it all gets a little fuzzy after that*.

It was a beautiful day spent basking in the sun and letting the kids run us around the yard. Of course I will show you some pictures! So glad you asked…

It was pretty much the perfect day. Happy Second Easter!
