Easter in the Valley

Peaceful Valley, that is. We spent Easter Sunday with extended family at the Pennington homestead in Itawamba County. Our family is in that in-between stage. The most recent crop of children have grown up, well past the egg-hunting stage, and no little children have come along to take their place. Since we have no young children in the family (yet), egg hunting and other Easter games have been put on hold for a while, however, that didn't keep a couple of the older "children" from playing in the creek.

I have to say that it was a productive afternoon playing in the creek. About three o'clock, we were summoned to a location in the creek about 300 yards behind the house. You can tune in tomorrow to find out what was discovered!

In the meantime, here are some photographs from the day.

We even had an Easter-decorated coconut cake compliments of Aunt Jo. It was nice to see the family tradition continue, and I'm hopeful that one of the younger generation will keep it up. Pictured above are Beck's three daughters, Brenda, Jean and Jo.

Those Canterburry eggs sure look nice.
