Relaxing on Easter Sunday in New Bern

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Easter is about family. I am in as I write, with Tracey’s family. Her sisters are Kim and Windy and we are at Kim’s home with all the cousins and Tracey is a proud aunt to Patrick and Trent Ball and Justin and Paige Ingalls. She shows it and brought girts to all the children.

Easter eggs will be later but all the children are playing in the yard at this time. We will eat later and while I have some time, I can type my article for this week’s newspaper.

We will have Mr. Otho’s BBQ sandwiches, along with Kim’s homemade permeate cheese while sitting on the pier.

We will have the Easter egg hunt after lunch to see which one of the grandchildren finds the most eggs. Kim has the eggs already placed in the yard. She really hostesses kinda like her mother, Reba, and her sisters, Tracey and Wendy.

The house is beautiful and it is a step down from her and Dennis ‘s other home. It has water in the backyard and plenty of boats with people fishing. They lived on the Trent River. Still, the home is beautiful and has plenty of room for the whole family.

Easter is a time for family and Kim does a fine job with the whole Smith family, including the grandchildren. Dennis is from Washington and he played in my backyard, so we have something in common.

Do not forget the reason for the season. Take care and have a safe and nice Easter vacation.

They were the best of times with the best of friends and in the best of places Washington, NC! The Original Washington!
