Easter at the Mango's

 We had friends over for dinner.  Always nice to share a meal.

My Dinner Plate
We had a lovely meal.  There was roast beef, ham and cherry sauce, potato casserole, roasted asparagus, broccoli and cauliflower with cheese sauce, spinach salad with fresh strawberries and almonds.  It was all so yummy!!!

Daffodils are my favorite flowers!  
Last year, there were daffodils in bloom on the first day of spring.  This year they didn't start blooming until last week.

 Sadie and Isaac played with Elizabeth on the front porch.  Sadie loves to play 'babies' and house to the exclusion of everything else.  Elizabeth is looking forward to when she likes to play other things.

Levi, loves fishing!  He spent a lot of the afternoon wetting his line at the pond.

The big kids played kickball with Uncle Dodger/Dad.  Isaac played with Dallas in the middle of the field.  It is so nice to have a big grassy field to play games on.

Paul, went looking for worms to give the fishermen a hand.  

Dad spent the afternoon wearing his Easter clothes and his boots to do his fishing in.  He had a fun afternoon.  We need to clean out some of the fish in our pond so that there is room for the little ones to grow up.  We will do some serious fishing when it is time to plant our corn.  Going to do it Native American style.  

Levi did catch a bunch of fish.  The pond is a fun place to fish as there are lots of fish to catch!

Time for dessert.  T-Bob enjoyed the GF strawberry shortcake that Michelle made as well as the yummy cheese cake that Aunt Anita made.

Mom and Kathy enjoyed the desserts.

Michelle and Elizabeth were enjoying swinging on the tree swing until the rope started breaking.  Time to get a new rope.


In the evening, we went to a friend's house who raise sheep.  The children wanted to see the lambs.


Lots of little lambs with their mamas!

Sadie was flipping her hair around.  Her hair is really getting dark.  It is almost the same color as Aunt M's was.

Michelle and the kids tramping through the pasture.

Levi got a splinter in his hand climbing on the new shed frame.

The lambs were so sweet.
