A whole lot of fun and a little bit of sadness

Both of my sisters and their families and my mom were in town for ther day! The Saturday before Easter is Duckling Day in Columbus. Whestone library hosting a Duckling Parade based on the picture book Make Way For Ducklings. You can get costume kits at the library ahead of time or make your own duck costumes then a mother duck leads all the kids dressed as ducklings around the park and a police officer directs traffic yelling, "Make way for ducklings!" just like they do in the book. We always go with the Erneys (our adopted family). This year it was freezing!!!!! We skipped most of the parade but made it to the puppet show afterwards. Here are Grant and Cole in their costumes (Grant wasn't so happy about it). and Creed was a duckling too.The puppet show was fun
The boys were totally absorbed

Cat lives by the library and she always hosts an amazing brunch afterwards and Creed had fun bonding with her.

And Ken too!

My mom had to fly home this afternoon. She said my dad wouldn't have an Easter basket for her so we pitched in and sent her home with an Easter purse full of Easter eggs and stationary and notes from us. She started crying saying goodbye to Creed so I started crying and then my sisters started crying and I think Larry and Mike didn't know what to do with a house full of crying Borup women. It's always so sad saying goodbye.

At least we had Easter egg dying to keep us busy for the rest of the afternoon.

Hippy hop, hippity hop.
Will the Easter Bunny stop?
Will he leave a treat behind,
An Easter basket for me to find?

I'll look over here,
I'll look over there,
I'll look behind things,
I'll look everywhere
I'll look until I find my treat,
And then I'll sit right down and eat.

Happy Easter!
