News and Events

Happy Easter!

I hope everyone had a happy Easter.  Here at the Murray house, we celebrated our first ever Easter with no children.  All the young ones have grown up, and my youngest son is away at college and couldn't make it home this weekend.  It was going to be a sad kind of day.  Fortunately, Mr. Murray came up with a brilliant idea to liven things up -- an adult Easter egg hunt!  He filled an assortment of eggs with fortune cookie fortunes, coupons for some prizes adults would like, and some grown up candies.  It was a lot of fun to watch the grown-ups being silly chasing after each other and fighting over Easter eggs!  We took lots of pictures, so I'm glad there will be lots of opportunities to crop them!  

Yes, we are all a little nutty, but we have a lot of fun!
Here's whats going on around the metroplex!
