He is risen! He is risen indeed! Happy Easter everyone! We began our day at Easter Sunrise Service. Unfortunately, it was raining so the service was held indoors, but I enjoyed this service anyway. You could still hear the birds chirping outside and it was a great way to start our Easter morning. Like always, we went to Bob Evans for breakfast, but skipped pictures at Shelter Gardens because of the rain. The kids were very excited to get home to see if the Easter Bunny had visited. John loved his Easter basket!
He particularly loved one of his new Minecraft books…
Laura was so excited to realize that not only did she get an Easter basket, but her American Girl dolls did too!
Laura just loved everything in her basket.
Then, it was off to hunt for eggs! I must say that the Easter Bunny was tricky this year. I suspect that we will be finding eggs for a while after Easter…
I particularly liked the location of this egg.
After the egg hunt, the kids opened all the eggs to a pile of candy while watching, “It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown.”
Because we did not go to Shelter Gardens for pictures, I took a few of the kids on our back patio. The background with all the trees made for some nice pictures!
Andy and I spent the rest of the day doing some work around the house. We have a new chandelier in our dining nook and John now has a ceiling fan in his room! We had a great dinner and also got some relaxation time. We did miss the Lowery Family and Uncle Jeremy, but we had a great Easter Sunday.
