Wow! What a fun, busy 3 day weekend we had. We stayed busy but it was all fun, family activities-which is the best kind! Felt a little like the Energizer Bunny….
Thursday night, Mike watched the kids while I played the Easter Bunny.
Plus they both got an umbrella for their outdoor table.
Friday, Mike took off, and I had a birthday day!!!! I love birthday days! It’s the one time of year I really let myself be spoiled and don’t feel guilty. 🙂 A new camera, new purse, new jewelry, lunch out, Starbucks, an ice cream cake…..And all with 3 of my favorite people. Then spent a relaxing evening on the couch watching a movie with my husband. It was the PERFECT day!!
Saturday, We did a 4.5 mile hike/jog. It was a new for us trail and only 15 minutes from the house. We’ll definitely be going back. We all loved it. I got some great shots on my new camera.
We went to Saturday night Easter Service so we kept it casual.
Chapelhill put on a great Easter service!!! I cried, laugh, but most importantly was reminded of the sheer awesomeness of the undeserved love and power of the God I serve!!!! Here is a highlight from our service. The drums sounded amazing in person….
We came home to a candlelight Easter dinner.
I filled this bowl and our place cards with Easter scriptures that we read aloud during the meal.
I was a little weirded out about celebrating Easter on Saturday night but it was perfect!!!
Sunday, we did Easter Baskets.
Read the Easter Story and more Easter scripture
Easter Breakfast a la Daddy
Easter is definitely becoming my favorite holiday!!! I’m so thankful my God is Alive and that my filthiness is washed away because of his sacrifice!!!!! I pray we can pass along the sheer awesomeness and wonder of an ALIVE God to our children.
(Man, can you tell I’m enjoying my new camera??? ;))
