Happy Easter

We had a nice Easter weekend this year. Friday we spent the afternoon at the river with some friends and finished off the day with a nice dinner. Saturday morning, Jameson had a tee ball game and he played awesome! He played pitcher position in the first inning and made 4 outs at first with his great fielding and throwing. Good thing the team mate on first could catch that inning ;)
After the game we headed to our neighborhood OSH where they were putting on a cute little egg hunt for the kids. We headed home, Billy did some mowing and weed whipping, the boys helped clean up the yard, and then we went back to the river for more swimming. We dyed eggs in the evening (it's possible to dye brown eggs!) and then Billy hid them a few times for the kids to find.

This whole week we have been following a Walk thru Easter Week on Just a short reading each day to help us remember all the events leading up to Easter Sunday.  Last night I made Easter rolls for the kids (and my primary class) to eat today. They were made by wrapping dough around a big marshmallow and then once baked... the rolls are hollow! Representing that Jesus lives, his tomb is empty, and we have much to be grateful for. It was a neat visual.
Church was nice. The kids all had a nice time in their classes and we relaxed for the rest of the day. I did manage to snap a couple pictures of the kids before we left for church. Billy had to work today, otherwise we would have tried for a family photo.  I will have to try for one of those soon.
Happy Easter.
