Weekend Recap: Easter Edition

Happy Monday!  We are all so tired.  We enjoyed our long weekend with my parents here for Easter, but I know we will all sleep wonderful tonight.  

My parents got here Thursday afternoon in time for Carson's egg hunt at school.

He did much better than I thought he would.  He would try and open each egg to see what was inside before going on to the next one.

Look how tiny he was last year at his egg hunt.

After the egg hunt, we stopped by my friend Stef's house to pick up our muffins.  Stef is baking for missions to fund the mission trips that her family is taking this year.  We LOVE her cheesecakes, but went with blueberry and coffee cake muffins this time.

Friday we went to our Good Friday Communion service and out to lunch before playing outside during the afternoon.  Grandpa and Mimi bought Carson a new Bubble Machine Lawn Mower and he loves it.

Saturday we hit up the Block Party at church.  Carson loved the bounce house but what he really loved was meeting his friend Willow and the Bacon Mac & Cheese.

That afternoon we made Resurrection Rolls before heading to the Saturday Night Service.  

This is a great way to teach the true meaning of Easter in a tangible way.

Sunday morning Carson woke up to his Easter basket being guarded by the Easter Bunny.
He had to move the bunny to get it out of his way.
That afternoon we worked in the yard some and Carson went for a ride with Dad.
Carson, Greg and I ended our Easter weekend by dying some eggs.   
We had a great weekend as a family with my parents here to visit.
I'm so thankful to be able to celebrate a Risen Savior!
