Easter Sunday Special Family Dinner
The Day dawned perfectly, a clear sky, sunshine later in the morning, the entire family showing up at my church so we could sit together in one long row at least one time each year. Grandma purchased T-shirts for the three grandsons, Ryan (blue), Jayden (yellow) and Kale (green) spring colors no less, and she sewed corresponding dresses and bought cute sweaters for the two girls - cousins, Kaylyn and and Kadence. The rest of us had to fend for ourselves. As we did last year, we made reservations at Northview Golf and Country Club for their Easter Buffet Brunch. Besides the good food there was a magician who made the rounds of tables and facepainting for the children. The afternoon finished with the girls watching a girlie kids flick and the guys (young and old) going to the nearby golf course where I have a free membership for four years, having done a painting for them and the T-B ox signs. A wonderful time. Little Kadence topped it off for me when she grabbed my arm and hugged me and said "My Papa!" and then she said, "hug and kiss" so we did it. Christine deserves so much praise for making this event like so many happen for us all, building memories of our family for our family.
