Here’s a breakdown of Easter (which just so happened to be one of the busiest weekends we’ve had in a long while).
Easter baskets showed up Saturday morning, right on schedule! New summer hats and flip flops graced their baskets.
Bennett turns 8 this week and Easter was the first time he wore a suit to church. I was a little surprised with just how excited he was – and just how old he looks when he’s wearing it!
We spent the afternoon with family. It is surprising how close we live to family, and how little time we actually spend together. We live seemingly separate lives that cross every so often at sporting events or when family comes to town. So holidays like Easter are a nice treat to sit around and talk and joke and play. And although there are a lot of family members, our numbers keeping getting smaller as more and more leave the nest – these group photos used to be much more crowded! 🙂 5 grandkids on missions, 7 grandkids married (and only one lives locally) and many more away at school.
The group of kids hunting eggs is the smallest it’s ever been. Briggs didn’t seem too brokenhearted about that fact.
It was a lovely day.
