Photo Friday: Easter at the Blowin’ O

We celebrated Easter with the Odom side of the family on the Saturday before Easter.  The kids had a great time getting to play and explore the Blowin’ O, what we affectionately call Aunt Karen and Uncle Lee Roy’s place out by Aleman, TX, which is right outside of Hamilton.  It was Granny and Grandad’s house first and they bought it while they were still living in Fort Worth back in the 70’s.  They lived there still while I was still young and we had many, many Easter egg hunts in the yard and field.

Actually, we hunted Easter eggs until we were married.  That was the rule.  It may sound cheesy but a bunch of high school kids running around looking for the prize egg was pretty fun.  Good memories.  And I’m so glad my kids are getting to make the same memories with their cousins as well.  It’s even more special that Grandad gets to watch his great grandkids enjoy the hunt now!

It’s Photo Friday, so I’m sharing just a few of the photos Garen took.  You can see a few more on Garen Graves Photography’s blog.  Happy Photo Friday!

Photo Friday: What Does the Cow Say?

Our nephew, Conner, graduated from Henrietta High School on Saturday and we went. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a photo with our handsome graduate. But the girls sure did enjoy his graduation party- Uncle Robert’s BBQ, MaMa’s baked beans, blueberries, and Nothing Bundt cakes were a hit. In Kate’s words…”Um, UM, Um, UM, Um!” as she shakes her hips. 

But more than the good food, they enjoyed going to see the cows with Uncle Robert. They’ve been hesitant to go to him until he got the cows to come up and now he might be their favorite! 

And they certainly know what the cow says now.  MOO!
