We had a pretty uneventful weekend,
no big plans, just made them up as we went...
Saturday we decided to drive over to Chatfield,
we took the back roads which is always a pretty drive.
We decided to try lunch at the Old Tyme Cafe on main street.
The place was empty at 12:30 which made us wonder if we had made the right choice.
The waitress told us to pick anywhere we wanted to sit.
After we chose our table, I looked over my right shoulder and saw this sign...
Yikes, Oh well I guess we can try anywhere once :)
Rick (red shirt) is a social butterfly and finds it easy to talk to anyone.
I'm pretty sure he made this man's day when he walked over to him
and they started reminiscing about Chatfield and the surrounding area.

Last night we went to the movie Divergent,
We didn't know much about the movie but saw some of the previews,
it had some good reviews so we took a chance and really liked it!
Every third Weekend, our daughter works 12 hour shifts on both Saturday and Sunday.
On those Sundays we often take Audrey home with us after church,
mostly because we love having her with us, but it also gives
her daddy a little afternoon reprieve while Carson takes a nap.
Today (while still in her Sunday best), Audrey wanted to make a "stick fort" with Grandpa.
We have a lot of broken branches from our tree out front, that have broke off from the big heavy snow that this winter has brought. She is in her glory picking up those sticks, and putting them in the snow.

Our deck has been too deep in snow to get to the empty bird feeder, but today I was finally
able to get out to it with my bare feet, it felt wonderful.
I will hold onto winter as long as I can with my snowman bird feeder...
believe me, the birds don't care !
I saw my first Robin today :)
