We spent Easter this year at the Bay (Port O'Connor) and then headed over to Jess's uncles (Uncle Dicks) house at the bottom on Easter day. We got to the Bay on Friday, we had intended on leaving on Thursday, but Jess had a meeting in the Woodlands and Drake had baseball practice so Friday it was. The bay trip was a blast as it always is. We hung out and spent time together as a family. Jon and Sara, and the boys were down, also Paw Paw and Nanny were also around. Nanny and Paw Paw bought the grand boys a bounce house to keep at the bay, so the kiddos and us mom's spent lots of time in there. Daddy went fishing on Saturday, but it was cold and windy, which led to a bad fishing trip. The little guys spent some time on the pier, not catching much except for Drake's piggy perch that he threw in the freezer to show Nanny the next morning. We made cookies, had an Easter Egg hunt, made many barges honk, cooked lots of great food, made wonderful margaritas, and just had a great time being together. It was a fast but fun trip as we left Sunday morning for Uncle Dick's at the bottom.
Easter day we saw Jess's side of the family at his Uncle's. Many of his cousin's were there with their children. The kids just ran around and played. We had an amazing late lunch and hunted Easter Eggs. There were tons and tons of eggs to be had by all the kids. Both of my boys had tons. Carter opened each egg looking for Chocolate as Drake checked the eggs for money. We decided to call it a day after the hunt. Jess ran by the farm, Carter and I headed home, and Drake rode back with Nanny. That is where our new addition Buster comes into play. More on him in another post.
