Easter Feast of Fun: Worth a Word Wednesday

Wordless Wednesday – also known as Worth a Word Wednesday

This post can be broken up into before the storm and after the storm.

On Good Friday my daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren arrived for the Easter long weekend.

They arrived in a blaze of sunshine after some April showers earlier in the day, and before a big storm blew over.

We went for our usual walk in the back paddock, to stretch their legs after the long drive, and to look for some kangaroos. We found some bouncing around in the vineyard and stood watching them until we heard the distant sound of thunder.

I took this lovely shot over the vineyard – the calm before the storm. The neat vineyard rows appealed to me!

We made it back to the house just as the rain started. After the storm we saw this amazing double rainbow out the front of the house. The littlies were very excited by the colours, almost as excited as the big people!

The weekend weather forecast wasn’t too good, mainly cold and showery, but we managed to make the most of any breaks in the weather, going for walks and rides in the forest.

Of course we also had an Easter Egg hunt, a trip to the playground, lunch with other family visitors, inside games and resurrected the old Wii system, plus skittles down the hallway!

Cubby houses, books, games and some choice TV made for a fun weekend! Lots of chocolate was consumed as you can imagine and many memories were made.

This double rainbow was a highlight. The next day, 2 year old Zachary kept asking where the two rainbows had gone, and he decided they were hiding.

As always enjoy your Wednesday wherever you are in the world.

Feel free to join in with Worth A Word Wednesday, post a photo and use as many words as you like!  I renamed it Worth a Word Wednesday because I just don’t do the wordless bit very well sometimes.

I love it when people leave me a comment, so don’t be shy – comment away!

  1. Hi Deb – that rainbow was spectacular – but I bet having the family around enjoying time together was even more special. Our family weekend is on hold because our DIL has just come down with covid (again) – sigh…..

    1. Leanne, the rainbows were enjoyed by all of us and such a lovely view from our front verandah! The grandkids were such a delight to have with us for Easter. I’m sorry to hear your plans are on hold due to Covid, it just won’t leave will it?


  2. I love reading about life in the southern hemisphere with opposite seasons to ours – but it occurs to me that Easter is probably unsettled weather wherever you live! We can have snow or be sweltering. The rainbow is spectacular.

    1. Thanks MK, I also enjoy reading about what’s happening on the other side of the world, it makes us all seem connected somehow. Easter weather can be glorious here with autumn colours and sunshine or cool and almost wintery.


  3. What an incredible rainbow! I loved the photo of the vineyard under the cloudy sky as well. Glad you could have family with you for the weekend! Visiting from Wednesday’s Words & Pics today – nice to meet you!

    1. We make sure we try and have fun Gail, even if it’s cold and wet outside! The kangaroos are very shy and we have to be quiet when we’re out looking for them as they tend to bounce away when they get wind of us. Keeping the kids quiet isn’t always easy though 🙂


    1. It was really nice and relaxed Jen, the kids did well considering they couldn’t get outside too often but we made sure we played lots of games. The Wii was a blast from the past and it still worked!


    1. Thanks Sue, it was fun despite the inclement (and cold) weather, we still managed to get out and do things with the kids. Hope your grandsons enjoyed their trip away but I bet they missed you too x


  4. I just loved that from Zachary…yes, rainbows do hide…and looking for them is fun. Great weekend for sure it seems. And that vital “memories made” too. Thanks so much for linking up your blog post this week for Wednesday’s Words and Pics. I appreciate your support of this community! Take care, Denyse.
