Easter 2017 Part 1

Part 1 Southern Hills Church Eggstravaganza

There's always a big huge party over at Southern Hills for Easter, and we tried to make sure we didn't miss it.
The crowd was already a-bustlin' when we got there, and the kids were poised for their next hunt / dash ( there were several rounds according to age groups ).
The little boy was all abuzz with excitement,
looking on in anticipation as the guys on the golf cart start throwing out the Easter eggs onto the shady lawn.
Oh yeah, those kids were champing at the bit. :)
And Away They Go!
I mean, just look at that face. It's the thrill of the hunt, I tell ya.
Of course, coming out with some loot is a big plus, although the candy per se is never a big thing with the little boy. It's the hunt. Always the hunt.
In between hunts, there's the Bouncy Castles.
The queues weren't so long, and the little boy got to go several times.
Then, Ho! Off we go to the next round of er, hunting.
Them eggs were gone in no time. It's like they were never there.
And as always, the grand finale was romping through the playground. 
Yay!

I mean, aren't these napkins just the most?


They are hilarious, entertaining and inspiring!

I May Be An Emotional Titan

I'm listening to the Disney Sing A Long station while I  "whistle while I work" - yes, I am very non-threatening that way - and each time the little girl's voice comes on singing "Do you want to build a snowman", I start bawling.

That seems kinda overly overly, but Lifehacker thinks I may be stronger than one might guess.

Aging just got SLIGHTLY easier

For a while now, I have been wearing reading glasses on top of my regular prescription glasses, ending up looking like this kid below.



The optometrist I had gone to a few years back advised that since I only had prescription in one eye, that the eyes would compensate for one another.  My good eye would mainly see far, and my bad eye would mainly do the near stuff. And he told me I could pretty much just go about without my glasses until my need for reading glasses got to be too much.

Well, I got to a point where I had to take of my glasses so much to see stuff close up,  I just went about without them just about all day, but then I would get into a situation where I couldn't see farther away.  This went on for months and months and months.

Maybe it was over a  year or so.

Then I decided I had had enough. It was a case of "That's all I can stands, I can't stands no more."

So we went to Walmart, got me a prescription for Progressives and with  me griping the whole time about how expensive glasses AND frames were, we got that done.



Now hopefully it won't take all of 2 weeks for me to get used to them!

Ooooh Fancy.

The other night I made Pork Florentine en croute.
Because you know, we're FANCY like that... 
Not.
