Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to all my friends here on Bacardi Mama!
I hope you all have a wonderful day.  It is beautiful here in northwest Indiana and I'm looking forward to spending the day with my family. 
I hope you all have a perfect day too!
 
I saw this graphic on Facebook this morning and thought it was pretty interesting.  Thought I would share it with all of you.

We went to Meijer Garden in Grand Rapids, Michigan for the weekend.  We took the tram ride around the park that took us past this beautiful waterfall.  Look how much snow they still have hanging around up there.  The waterfall was breathtaking.  We all loved it.  I really like the reflections in the water too.

I was so excited when I went back to work after spring break.  These little beauties were waiting for me outside the preschool door.  It has been so long since there was anything but snow out there.  These little pops of color made me very happy.

Here's my favorite shot for the week.
I took a short girls trip to Meijer Garden in Grand Rapids, Michigan for the tropical butterfly exhibit.  I had so many great shots, it was hard to pick one.  I finally picked this one because I liked the water droplets on the leaf.   I can't wait to go back next week and take the grandkids.  They are going to love it.

Here's my favorite picture from the past week.
This is the point in winter when I start to get tired of the weather.  It's no longer the pretty snow.  It's the brown and the dead looking, but the water is thawing a bit so we get the reflections back in the water.  Now, that I love!

Here's my favorite picture from the past week.  
Our granddaughter Haley was christened on Saturday.  She wore the dress that my grandma made for my mom 88 years ago.  I wore that dress as did my daughter Katie who is Haley's mom.  I think it is really special that four generations have worn that dress and it is still just as beautiful as it was all those years ago.  Of course, Haley looked absolutely adorable in it.

We went out to the beach to see the shelf ice.  There was so many awesome things to see, I had a horrible time trying to decide which picture to choose.  I finally chose this one because you can see how tall the shelf ice actually is with the perspective of the people.  It is just incredible out there.
