Easter

We had a wonderful Easter despite the rain. Our plan was to go to Phil and Jacquelyn's for breakfast and then color eggs and let Grace hunt eggs in their backyard. Since it was raining most of the day we hid the eggs inside instead! Grace did a great job finding all of the 66 eggs. I think she only left one behind!

That afternoon we headed to church for an Easter celebration. They grilled ribs, chicken, burgers and hot dogs and there was lots of other food and desserts. They even had an indoor Easter egg hunt for the kids. We didn't know they were going to be doing that and left the camera in the car and didn't have time to get it until after the egg hunt was over. Dustin barely made it with Grace's basket in time. After the egg hunt one of the ladies told the Easter story to all of the kids using Easter eggs. She had numbered the eggs and then passed them out and asked the kids to open them one at a time. Each egg had something to remind us about the Easter story.

This year was so much more fun since Grace was actually able to hunt the eggs herself. Even with the rain we had a great day!

It looks like you had a fun and busy day! And I'm glad to hear that Grace hunts eggs like a champion! I can't wait until next year, when she's here and I can watch.
