Monday's News- On Spring Break

Friday we made our way down to Virginia Beach along with thousands of others. The roads were packed with cars. What usually takes 3.5 hours took 8 hours! I thought everyone would be at home or church on Good Friday, well they all were going to Virginia Beach for spring break. On the road as I drove, I managed to miss a Pitch Fork, Garden rake, shovel,Chair, dead dog, the glass bottles. Sometimes the highway can be an obstacle course, good thing people are learning to drive with cones on the obstacle course.

We stopped at Cracker Barrel to eat. We really love that place. I had fish, hubby have a fish fry and daughter had French toast. All that for around 25.00, not bad huh? We arrived at Dad's, it was great to see him. I made dinner, we talked awhile and then went to bed around 1 am.

On Saturday Hubby wanted to go to Kohls (He's a Kohls-aholic).We went out to the Texas Roadhouse, all four of us ate for 25.00 petty good. The men had steak and the ladies Pork, then off to Kohls. There my daughter got some summer clothes, as the weather here is in the upper 70's. For our Easter Basket this year we opt to eat a Edibles Fruit one.

Ours had a yellow tin basket.
I will use it again,
so you will probably see it at some point

Ever watch "Undercover Boss" it is a series on CBS. I love that show, so I dialed it up on the tube and showed it to Dad, we all had a great time.

Easter Sunday we went to church, met up with my 92 year old grandmother. She is still going strong. The service was great and at the end the stone rolled away, a Man dressed as Jesus came out and walked about as we sang. After church we went out to an Easter Buffet at Oceanside Hilton. The Easter bunny was there and the music and food was great. I got to eat my Lamb which is a favorite of mine to make on Easter. Hubby and daughter said it was great just like I cook it. I wondered how they got my recipe... Maybe from my cookbook site. After the meal we went down to the beach to walk some of the food off. I took some pictures, and saw all the folks who traveled down with us on the roads. They were on the beach enjoying the sun.

We went to see Granny and Grandpa and their cat Tiger. Then talked to Critter and family on the phone. Once back at Dad's we play Monopoly, daughter and hubby had the most money and won the game. Dad and I are not good investors and did not seems to reel and deal that well. But then again it is always the Luck of the Rolled Dice.

  1. That Easter basket looks fabulous! What a great idea.

    I checked your kitchen blog hoping to find a lamb recipe. No joy. An allergy to poultry has me searching for other alternatives.

  2. Sounds like a fun trip! What was with the road debris??? A dead dog?? Ewwwww.

  3. It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend and Easter. I sure wish the temperatures were in the 70's here. It has been unusually cold out here for this time of year.

  4. Sounds like a nice weekend :)

  5. Love Va Beach! - Hubby and I drive down there in the summer 4 or 5 times! (We're only an hour away!) Leave early on Sat. mornings! Pack our lunch, get our coffee, the paper, rent a big umbrella and take our own favorite chairs ~ and spend the day! Park at 31st street at the Hilton public parking garage and set-up on the beach right there - Bathrooms, they always have music in the summer ~ It's the best thing in the world!!
