We had a lot going on Easter Sunday 04/12/20.
Not only was it Easter Sunday, but it was Colin's birthday. We took Beau with us, and drove over to see him.
Sue hid some little gifts and candy for him in the yard, and we watched him retrieve them, and did a distance drive-by hug. Frustrating, but this COVID-19 pandemic requires us to all be so careful.
Then we drove over to Marissa's and did the same with her, Gary and Mia - who Sue had made up a nice little Easter goodie bag for her.
I had gone back through my pictures archive and selected several pictures of Colin over the years to give to him. The one on the left is from 2001, and the right from 1999. I also had pictures from 2005, 2010, 2015, and 2020. The sign Sue made up to tie around the Corona beer can says, "I tested negative for COVID-19"
Sue and I wishing everyone a Happy Easter during this COVID-19 pandemic crisis time. Mia did the watercolor with Sue the last time she visited.
We had told Colin to stay in the house until Sue had finished hiding his treats. This is him coming out of the house and spotting the first picture and small plastic container of candy.
He finds another gift hidden behind his truck.
From Colin's we went over to Marissa's house in Dover. Here's Mia playing with Beau.
Sue took this picture of Mia just hanging out.
As soon as we got back home Sue and I scrambled to get our ham ready for the oven. Of course we toasted the event with a glass of wine.
Once the ham was in the oven, we went in to play some backgammon by the wood stove. We wanted a fire because it was supposed to get quite chilly by late afternoon. It was a really nice day we had together, and sharing some time with Colin and Marissa.

Fresh daffodils that had just come up from Sue's flower garden.
And Easter dinner is served!
Not a very clear picture of the brook, but because of all the past snow and rain that we've had it was running so fast that you could hear it from the house.
