Monday April 1st. The last day of Cockrell's Spring Break. Betsy fixed a hearty breakfast of farm fresh scrambled eggs, piles of pancakes, and sweet marionberry syrup. Scrumptious!

The girls entertained themselves well, playing with babies & dress up, then outside in the playhouses. They even made a muddy pool at the end of the slide...such imaginative minds!

Meg, the real dress up doll
In the afternoon Betsy gave horse lessons 101 and each of the  children took a turn riding. We missed a picture of Annie! She rode a little, then graduated inside to make pull apart rolls for dinner. That was much more interesting for her! Too bad we missed a picture of those -the joke of the day- using yeast from '07! They were yummy warm from the oven (even if a little heavy). It was lots of fun riding the Honda 50 dirt bike too! They have a beautiful place near the foothills...  a perfect setting for horses.

Doug came home from work and took a spin with the rest

Doug's mom came over to deliver Easter treats and stayed for dinner. Our 1st experience dipping steamed artichoke leaves in butter! We had a relaxing day re-aquainting with Betsy after 17 years, enjoying a day in her home, and meeting her family.
