Boy!! It has taken me forever to decide to sit down to work on our little blog. I don't know how long it has been since I have taken such a long break. Our little brood had a great Easter weekend. We started it on Friday by dying Easter eggs. Next, it was off to Grandmama's for an Easter egg hunt with cousins Ethan, Elijah, Alayna, Nathanael, and Alexander. I guess, technically Alexander and Annalise did not participate, but I think they had a great time. Next, the other Franklin brood came home with us and we planted our first raised bed garden. It was a lot of fun and we were pleased with how much the kids (espcially Alayna) enjoyed it. We planted yellow crookneck squash, zucchini, cucumbers, baby carrots, buttercrunch lettuce, eggplant, and tomatoes. We have since put in several herbs. So far, everything is sprouting and looking really great. We are super excited. On Easter Sunday, we went to church, took the little ones to the park for a bit, and then went home for lunch. It was a great weekend. And we enjoyed spending it with our family.
