Easter 2008

Egg hunting this year was decidedly more adversarial than last year.

Last year the two childrens basically hunted eggs together making sure to share their finds so that everyone got an equal share... without any prompting from us parents.

This year there was quite a bit of racing and bumping and pushing and shoving . You'd think it was a Nascar event -- on the track or in the beer line.

The dumptster

We're finally pretty much done with the dumpster. This was the second fill up. The first one went pretty quick. The second one fillup took a couple weeks. We demolished the old-doghouse that was here when we moved in as well as a lot of the fencing over in that area.

The dumpster company's rule of thumb is 1 cubic yard per year in your house so the first 20 yard dumpster should have been plenty. Apparently we are over achievers. We could probably scrape up enough junk for a 3rd one but that will take even longer and we've much such a large impact that we'll call it done for now.
