Where did you go for Spring Break? For us, not far but it was one of the best Easters ever. The family was home (so we didn't travel) and our "activities" were wiener roasts out in the Sandhills south of town. The grandkids loved it. You helped dig the fire pit and everyone pulled dead wood from the bush. You cooked your own wiener, just how you liked it, when you wanted it. After a prairie winter (even though this winter was too mild), there is nothing like the smell of dry poplar burning. Wieners, as we know, are made of lips and _ _ _ holes, but over an open fire they are ambrosia, especially the first of the season. Add a couple of pilsners, if so inclined or a can of pop. The grandkids went for a quad ride with grandpa. Under his strict supervision, they each drove for a bit (with him and his eagle eye right behind them.) The hills were a challenge. Run right up and the view is great.
Nirvana for the dogs. Run off-leash. Smell the deer scat, sniff the coyote markings, check out the elk droppings. Something for everyone and there are a lot of sticks to play with.
Fresh air and sunshine after the short days of winter. Snow geese flying and honking overhead. A huge bald-headed eagle soared overhead. The best time ever in our own backyard.
