What a wonderful Easter weekend we had! It was a great mix of fun and family, good food and a powerful early morning service at HPUMC.
I was just so happy this weekend, with my big family and my little family, hunting eggs, eating way too many chocolates and singing hymns.
I have a few too many photos to share, but these kids are just too darn cute not to. :)
We decided to do the egg hunt and lunch with my family on Saturday rather than Sunday so that we wouldn’t be so rushed on Sunday. It worked out great. We made it to my parents before lunch and let the kids run around and eat chocolate all afternoon. They had a blast with their cousins!
The kids were skilled egg hunters this year. Caroline was pretty motivated by jelly beans and chocolate eggs. They were so proud of their full baskets!
On Sunday we were up with the birds and made it to the 9AM service. I was glad we did because the lines to get in as we were on our way out were crazy. And how awesome is that? I love a full church on Easter.
We didn’t get a real family photo because it was just us at the house on Sunday, but I’m so happy with both of these. Brian needs that one in his office, don’t you think?
The Easter baskets didn’t make an appearance until after church. I knew there was no way we’d make it on time if we pulled these out first so we waited.
They were so excited to come home to these little baskets. They each got a coloring book, some candy, new books, cute cups and a little toy from the dollar spot at Target. Nothing fancy, but they were sure happy with them!
What a wonderful day! I hope your weekend was filled with family and friends and fun, too!
