Easter Weekend

Remember we tolds you our park was closed for 1,235,984 years? 

This is why it was closed.

A place for mom and dad to rest their butts.

Hmmm, whoever was sittin' here left a warm spot for me to keep my butt warm.

Enough of the butt bench...

We're really excited this weekend 'cause dad has two days off in a row! BOOF BOOF! 

His grapes take a lot of work. First they had to prune all the vines, then they had to tie them to the wire things. And just when mom and us thoughts we were gonna see more of him, he had to worry about the frost hurtin' his grapes. If it gets below 32 degrees, then dad has to go up to the vineyard at likes 2 in the morning and turn on sprinklers to keeps the little buggers from gettin' frost on 'em. 

Stella is dad's official grape tester. Nothing passes by her.

We can't wait to hear about everyone's Easter!
Stella, Gunther and Betty

Happy Easter friends! What a great picture of Stella tasting wine (or grape juice?)?
We received your Easter card, thank you so much, we loved it! I was busy helping arrange my lil sister's bedroom and didn't have a chance to prepare Easter cards (all the scrapbook supplies are under sheets and conforters right now!). Hopefully we will find a place for everything again soon.

oh what wonderful photos!
emmitt says he is going to start making individual blankets for each grape to keep them warm. he wants to help make wine so he can have a glass with stella too!

he is pulling out his wool, needle and thread. this could take awhile. :)

happy happy easter to all of you!

The three of you look so cute sitting on the bench!!! I hopes Stella doesn't gets a little drunksees poos(hee hee). Josie got back from her big egg date with Stubby a while ago...I'm sure soon you'll hear all 'bouts it and Anakin is head over tails 'bouts his woman Sequoia! She gots him a little blue and green egg. Josie is sleeping after her big date she just had, but I read this bloggy aloud and she said to tell your Daddy that he can try to put his little grapes in the plastic easter eggies. That might protect them. Or Josie thinks Stubby may disapprove do to the plastics not being to environmentally friendly...he can cover them up at night, but first read to them. Hee Hee...
Hope you're having a hippity hoppity weekend!
XOXO

Hey... you guys got grapes too??? I'm not allowed to eat the grapes though. Butt my mom sure makes grrreat jelly and delicous pies. I know what you mean about the frost thingy. Last year we lost almost half of my grapes to that cold stuff!!! Dad didn't listen to my mom when she said to COVER THE GRAPES ....

I hope that since they put a bench in your park that you will get to hang out more! I mean if the momma gets to sit while you play, then there is no reason for you to have to go home until YOU are ready!!! Right!?!?!?!

Have a Happy Easter!!

~Kisses~
