Easter 2010

We were invited to have dinner with Dean, Darlene, and some of their friends on Sunday; and it was absolutely the best of times.

First of all Dean is one of the best cooks ever (and Darlene too for that matter), but their home is so perfectly wonderful. It is full of whimsy and happiness inside and out due to Darlene's absolute charm. Here is their river front. It's amazing how different their part of the river is so different than ours.

Love her bottle tree.

And the old boat hull covered in azaleas.

The meal was fit for a king. Leg of lamb, asparagus, deviled eggs, roasted new potatoes, tomato pie, couscous and squash.

The desserts were delish as well.

OMG'arsh. I, with the assistance of the kid and hub, FINALLY found the strawberry farm that had been eluding me earlier in the week. Look at these babies!!! They taste as good, if not better, than they look.

I took a batch over, some dipped in chocolate, and whipped some cream. Not that they needed anything, mind you! Oh my.

The day ended feeding the local turtles. This one posed for quite a bit until I got just the right shot. How sweet.

It was the best day ever. Thank you so much D&D for the perfect Easter celebration.

Good morning, Rosa. What a beautiful day and so much eye candy for me. A bottle tree! How cool is that? The table presenting the food is awesome. Did you friends make the table? After a day like that and all the good food, I'm sure you were as lazed as the pup.

What a wonderful Easter you had with friends. That's quite a spread and my mouth started watering when I read tomato pie ... I haven't had tomato pie since I was a little girl and I LOVED it. Oh, my ... see what you've done! :D :D :D (Loved all the shots ... turtle, puppy, river ... all)
