Easter at Aspen Meadows

We celebrated Easter on Saturday instead of today.  Kyle is returning to school today and traffic makes it a nightmare for Brett's sister and family on holidays.  It worked out great.

We had beautiful weather, with a bright Easter egg blue sky and warm temperatures.  I rode Winston after breakfast, while the rolls were rising, in a t-shirt and got warm!  Then I headed back into the kitchen.  I provided the main course and wine.  My brother and his wife brought appetizers and champagne.  Brett's family brought desserts.  We did not hurt for food.

I like setting up the drinks in the mudroom.  It is easy self-serve and keeps traffic outta the kitchen.

My brother's wife brought dips, cheese and made wonderful tuna & tapenade in a pepper boat things.


I didn't get a picture of the lamb, potatoes gratin and rolls before they disappeared. 


We loaded our plates with food and headed outside.  It was too nice to stay inside.  My parents and my brother's family settled on the porch.  Brett and I headed down to the viewing stand with his family.



The horses were enjoying the sunshine as well.


Of course, we had to visit the goats.

Brett and Thistle were entertaining the crowd.  
 It was a very successful day.  Today, we are relaxing and grazing on the leftover ham.

  5. The goats are adorable, but I can't believe they were more popular than the horses! What's up with that?

    Goats are real crowd-pleaser, I guess. :)
