Easter

We had a lovely, low key Easter.

We dyed eggs the night before.   We almost skipped it, but the kids had a blast, so I’m glad we made the time.  I never got around to buying the PAAS kit, but it turns out that the food coloring dyes I had on hand worked just fine.

Easter Sunday, we opted to go to a church in our neighborhood, rather than figure out the logistics of going to our regular church service, which was earlier and further away.  Since we were headed to my brother and sis-in-law’s afterwards, staying close to home for the service made life much less complicated.   I got this picture of the kids with their baskets before church.  Not great, but it’ll do.

After church, we headed out to brother Bear’s, where Aunt Melis had a lovely brunch planned, along with an egg hunt.  The kids were eager beavers to snag some more eggs.

I swear this is our “happy” child, but you’d never know it when the camera turns on.

We attempted some family shots.  It didn’t go great.

Our best shot included a red-headed step-child 🙂

After brunch, there was lots of fun playing in the cul-de-sac.   Kids rode bikes (or gliders)…

… and climbed trees….

And generally just had a fun time.

It was a beautiful day to celebrate the risen King!
