Sunday, March 31st, 2013

Sam and three of her (MANY) second cousins on my side of the family. She had a ball running around with Eddie, Caleb and Keegan, even in the rain. Some other scenes from a rainy Easter… For the first time we joined in the annual family Easter whiffle ball game at my aunt’s. Granddaddy is […]

Apparently some of the kids were shouting out letters for him to form, and also invoking various wind gods to keep the winds brisk and favorable.
