Everything Easter

Every year we go to the "Easter Eggstravaganza" that the church I work at puts on. The girls have a lot of fun and love going to it! Even Kendal, despite the fact that I lost her there a few years ago, but that's another story. :) This year we went with our best boy buds.

They are ready to start the fun.

We weren't there long when we ran into several friends.

Sweet friends in the Strawberry class.

more friends

they got to hunt for eggs
they braved up to ride the ponies

We even had fun relaxing and playing in the grass

She is determined to get that piece of candy out no matter how long it takes her.

This is just too sweet and cute of Payton and Little Middle (as he is called on his Mama's blog) holding hands walking back to the car. Our day of fun has come to an end.

A few days later....

We went to an egg hunt hosted by the H boys for all us CDC moms and our non-school age kids at a local park. The morning started out a little "ify" with the dark clouds in the sky threatening to rain, but God showed mercy on my sweet friend that planned this for all of us and held the rain back. We just started 30 min. later than planned....just in case! :)

they are anxious to get started

let the hunting begin!!

Enjoying a picnic lunch with only a few sprinkles from the sky

A few more days later.....

Easter Sunday The Easter Bunny made a visit. Although Kendal is no longer buying it!! She kept asking me if I was really the Easter Bunny and I would blow her off. At one point, Payton said something about the Easter Bunny bringing them their basket and Kendal said, "Nu-uh it's Mommy, she got us everything!" Payton was too focused on the candy and other things that she didn't hear her so I quickly told Kendal to SHHHHH!!! and at least pretend for her sisters. I figured at some point she would start asking questions about some of our other "visitors", but she never said another word about it.

All pretty and ready for church in their Easter dresses from Grandma.

It was a cool and rainy day so they even got to use the little sweaters that came with the dresses.

We had a lot of Easter fun, but the most important part of Easter that we teach our girls is that Jesus died on the cross for our sins and rose again on the third day. It just doesn't get any better than that!!
Matthew 28:1-6
Luke 24:1-6

Until next time...
