Here's me and my Dad, Easter way back when. It's been such beautiful weather here in Western Wisconsin. We hit a record high of 84 degrees today, breaking the record from 1946! Our normal high would only be about 50. So I have been outside, cleaning up old garden beds and soaking up the sun. I have also been feeling a bit nostalgic. It may be because my Dad passed away shortly before Easter 3 years ago. I think back to Easter past's and I remember.
And a few years later, with my brother Tim. The 3 of us were all born bing, bing, bing. I was 2 and a half when Tim was born. My parents went on to have 5 more. Yes, there are 8 of us. Big Catholic family you know. We would always get dressed up on Easter and then after collecting our eggs and Easter baskets head off to church. Many times, we would go to my Grandma's for dinner or occasionally we would go out of town to a Aunt's or cousins home. At that time, we were living in Central Illinois.
So there you have it, my little bit of Easter Nostalgia. Thanks everyone for letting me go down memory lane today.
And Happy Easter !
