Spring Break in Batesville

Ben and Maggie were so excited to visit Grandpa Hank and "Gram Linda" for spring break. Maggie collected rocks for weeks because Grandpa told her that they could paint rocks like Easter eggs. (She arrived with grocery bags full of stones and pine cones!) The weather was cold and dreary, but Grandpa Hank can always find something to do outside. He and Gram Linda gave Maggie her own wheel barrow for her 4th birthday, so she was happy to put it to use helping to stack wood as Grandpa split it.

In addition to the rock-painting, we dyed eggs. Ben was pleased with his perfect rainbow.

The kids also enjoyed watching the wildlife that's always present at my parents' house. This little squirrel was so happy that Maggie kept feeding him.
