Easter- Gazebo, Sun , Birthday , a Seabreeze cocktail and more

Celebrated Easter on Saturday ,  rain in the morning then the sun came out and it turned into a wonderfully warm   and sunny afternoon....
 We combined Easter dinner,spiral cut ham, garlic mashed potatoes, devilled eggs, broccoli cashew salad and lots of treats;

a birthday for Brayden with a chocolate cake and a chocolate peanut butter cheesecake ,both  made by  Sherry and so good.


a gazebo raising for the back patio work done by son-in law Willie and Steve and grandsons Brock and Brayden;

 and a  garden party  in the sun...The drink in Sherry's hand is Seabreeze from Ina Garten made a pitcherful , thinking it will be the drink of the summer here..........

Note need for sunglasses!

Rosanne in a pensive thought with Brianne !

Brittany always  smiling!
Special treats  , Rosanne,
decorated  little tins   secretly filling  with treats from the bottom,

Sherry made her   candy Easter eggs  nestled in  edible  green grass ...... white chocolate and dark chocolate   chow mien easter eggs made by usual  way too much of everything but oh so good.
 A fun , busy, work Easter...
