Weekend Goodness

What a great weekend we had! We celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary this weekend.

We spent the night at Rick's Grand Hotel in downtown McKinney. The hotel was lovely, and I'd definitely recommend NOT to get an interior room. Having no windows was pretty spooky. Also the room walls were paper thin, which was a little disconcerting. The HVAC was noisy and sounded like a helicopter taking off from the roof. But the room itself was gorgeous and beautifully appointed. VERY comfortable and luxurious.I am definitely looking forward to going back.

We ate at Rick's Chophouse for dinner, and everything was DIVINE! I can't say enough nice things about the whole experience. Only downfall, coffee snob that I am, is that their coffee was crap. Even the husband complained.

Saturday we spent the entire day working in the yard. I must've transplanted a hundred plants. Many beds were amended, weeded, and patted into prettiness. I need to fertilize a little later in the week. Pictures to come when it's a little brighter outdoors. It is still cloudy today and we were very lucky not to have any storms that tore up all the work we did. We had some lovely rain, about 1.25 inches. Perfect.

Sunday was Family Day, as usual. We had an Easter egg hunt indoors and it was pretty boring--next year Hank will be walking and we have promised to have a more involved experience. Those baby smiles are just too cute! And, wow, is he growing fast!

Husband retrieved pictures from the attic, and DIL helped me choose which ones to hang. We also switched some of the frames and pictures to achieve a more balanced look. This week I'll be cleaning and reframing and hopefully hanging pictures. I'm hoping to add some OLD family pictures from both sides of the family.
