Easter...we couldn't have imagined a better day, and I mean that in every way it could be taken, both literally and spiritually! Our kiddos awoke to find their presents from the Easter bunny in their baskets and their eggs hidden around the house. They were both so excited and eager to show us what they got.
Once the eggs were all found, it was time to give thanks and PLAY!
Then we got dressed up and headed to church. I love the way our pastor, Randy, helps us imagine what it must have been like to be right there in the midst of the stories we read in the Bible. Today, I imagined what it must have been like to be there the day Jesus appeared to the men walking along the road to Emmaus. It must have been amazing to hear Jesus explaining how He fulfilled the old testament prophesies that day!
After lunch and naps, we had another Easter egg hunt in the backyard. Audrey was a little slower finding eggs, but only because she wanted to eat the candy out of them as she found them! Jackson was an incredibly sweet big brother and started finding eggs for her to help fill her basket!
After the kiddos had their fill of candy, we ditched the dressy clothes for our swimsuits and spent the afternoon washing cars and playing with the water hose. It was nearly impossible to get them to come inside for dinner because they were having so much fun playing in the "rain". They were taking turns spraying the water up in the air and giggling with delight as it fell on them. Needless to say, they were starving when they finally came inside and both crashed hard when their heads hit the pillow. It truly was an incredible day!
