Sunday, April 15 – We did so much on Saturday that we forgot to post that we colored eggs too! Marsha insists we carry on this tradition from when the kids were younger. We did have fun.
Easter Sunday began with the Easter bunny stopping by Carrie’s place.
After opening the baskets and playing with some of the toys, it was off to Hermann Park, another Houston Park. This park has everything: a zoo, art in the park, playground, Japanese garden, trails, paddle boats, etc., etc., etc. This is another beautiful park, and boy were the locals out enjoying the beautiful Easter holiday. Picnickers were here by the thousands celebrating the day with family and friends. Our goal was to cover 3.2 miles in honor of the 32 Virginia Tech students killed ten years ago on this day by a deranged killer. Carrie was a student at VT during this terrible time.
The train is a huge attraction. It goes around the 445 acre park. The cost is $3.50 and all proceeds go to MD Anderson Cancer Hospital Children Ward.
We returned to Carrie's to enjoy our family Easter dinner. With the help of mom and her sister, Carrie served a delicious dinner of pork loin, potatoes, and asparagus. Yummy! Of course it was time for naps for the boys, so Kelly and Carrie took a walk around downtown covering another four miles.
This is getting long. We will finish Easter day in the next post.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see y’all back real soon. Have a great day!
