Thank you, E.B.

As is so often the case, we will be traveling tomorrow on Easter.  This seems to be how it goes when you work in education and have to take your vacations when school is not in session.  We try to take a trip - sometimes to visit family - whenever we can.  So like on Thanksgiving and Christmas, we will not be at home tomorrow for the Easter Bunny to come to our house.  No worries...he came early and dropped off a basket of goodies for Grace this morning.  What is cute, is that when she saw him today, she thanked him for the basket and gave him a big hug.  I think he was surprised!
It has become a little tradition of ours to attend the Easter Egg Hunt at Stan Hywet.  It is a well-organized event but it is ALWAYS TOO COLD!  Not their fault, of course.  This is Ohio and Easter comes at the end of March or early April when the weather here is never a sure thing.  It was very sunny today but chilly in the morning which meant warm coats and gloves!

The grounds at Stan Hywet are beautiful - even now when the flowers and trees are not in bloom yet.  In the summer and fall they are gorgeous to visit with everything full of seasonal color.  It must have been an amazing place back in the years when the Seiberling family lived there.

We didn't walk around too much today.  We were all hungry for lunch and decided to head back to pack for our trip to Florida tomorrow.  We are hoping for some warm temperatures to go with the sunshine.  And maybe by the time we get back spring will have finally arrived in Ohio.  Then we will be able to say goodbye to our winter coats for a while!
