Easter, 22 Years Ago

Twenty-two years ago, Mom agreed to keep my then 3 1/2 year old daughter over Easter weekend so that my husband and I could go on a beach trip. (I use the word "beach" loosely because we went to the Texas gulf coast, which is really a poor excuse for a beach. But it's all they have here.)
Mom went all out and bought Kate a complete Easter outfit:
They did not attend any church or anything, Mom just always thought you should dress for Easter. They dressed Kate up and hid the eggs and had the hunt and took lots of pictures. I'm sure Kate was very confused by the whole thing.
And speaking of confused, on this crazy group beach trip, which included both my 1st (and current at the time) husband and my future second husband, I picked door #2. I'll never forget that weekend.

Awwwww...those pictures of Kate are so cute! I bet that was one of your mom's favorite Easters too! I was looking at some of my old Easter pictures earlier as well. Hope you have a Happy Easter Gee!

Wow. I wonder which of those guys is your NEXT husband.

Awww, Kate is so cute. I remember having to wear a new Easter outfit - and crying because my mother bought it for me weeks before Easter and I wanted to wear it right away. I probably had to dress up every Easter, but I specifically remember that one time.

I am confused about your last paragraph, though......

~~Thanks! We had a great day. I'd love to see some of your old pics of the kids.

~~Piffle. My Sweetie is my last and forever husband.

~~Well my first and future second husband were on that trip and I pretty much decided that weekend that I wanted to make that move.

Wow - love the athletic socks, was he one or two?

~~That poor guy had a broken shin. His crutches are just out of the picture. Never married Jim but he later became one of my three match-made couples. He married a gal I set him up with.

So you're the smokin' hot one in the swim suit up front? The one that looks blue on my screen?

~~How about we settle on "teal?"
