A Fine Easter Weekend

It was a great weekend with perfect weather, lots of friends and family . . .

Easter eggs were hidden and found ...

The barn was full of food and the air was full of music ...
And various good times were had...

Oh I am in love with your Easter celebrations. Just look at the children.. the eggs.. the musicians! I am really envious. I'm determined to have easter in the spring. I'm having autumn ANZAC and Halloween instead and ignoring easter. I want to have easter like you in the springtime!!

Are the eggs real hen's eggs dyed? How I would love to be at your easter day!

Vicki, what an epic week-end---totally captures the spirit of the mountains, family, and friends---Idyllic!
Quite a contrast to my quiet day, which was equally fun.
The photo of the tyke in green wellies was superb!

It was, perhaps, the most pleasant Easter celebration we've had in the thirty four years we've been having the party. A lot of the little ones were brought by parents who had once been toddlers hunting eggs at our party. Second generation music-makers too!

Yes, Easter seems so tied to Spring -- the whole rebirth/resurrection thing -- we aren't religious people and we treat Easter as a celebration of Spring.

Yes, Joan, they're real hard-coked egs that ave been dyed -- mostly. Some folks brought plastic eggs with candy inside.

Today is clean up -- but we had so much good help that it was quickly done. I'm off to do a reading this evening and will get back to blog visiting very soon.

I've looked at all your photos and almost felt like I was there. Also there were lots of characters from your books too. I'm glad to see there are still some hippies thriving in them thar hills! Lovely pictures, lovely time was had by all, I'm sure.
I bet you were tired afterwards?

Wow, you have quite the Easter shindig!!!! Looks like great fun. The pictures made me smile - especially the hula hooping woman and nekkid boy, LOL!

Oh, I would have loved to be there with my guitar! Now I'm glad I dragged it to Florida with me because you never know when someone might want to hear some good "hill pickin'" or bluegrass.
