Easter was overall good! Saturday our church was hosting an Easter Egg Hunt then a bit of a party. Well, we were running late and parking was a bear so when we finally stepped on the grass of the park the hunt JUST started. We still had to cross the field so by the time we reached the area the hunt was over. I was mad because of the reasons we were running late (which I won't share on here). But it was okay. My kids didn't mind... in fact, several of our friends' kids just started loading up Will & Lana's baskets with eggs they had found. It was such a sweet gesture.
My friend Tegan and her family came as well. They also missed the hunt. Oops!
Then we headed over to the church for bouncy houses and lunch. Ryan met up with us there. The kids had a good time and then, before we knew it, the party was winding down.
It was decided that 2 of the guys were going to re-inflate one of the bouncy houses so they could rough-house (which later ended in an injury). And since our kids are smaller and couldn't really enjoy bouncing freely in a bouncy house earlier with the crowds, the other bouncy house was inflated so Will and Lana could have their own private jumping time. They LOVED it.

Later that night me and the kids dyed Easter Eggs and went over the Easter story. After my utter failure with Resurrection Cookies last year I didn't even attempt it this year!
Easter morning my kids were able to check out their multiple baskets and Easter gifts.

|He got bubbles too!|
Then, after many, many failed attempts at getting a decent picture I settled on "okay" and we were on our way to church.
|Kids! Look at the camera!|
|okay, hugs are nice|
|is the sun too bright out here??|
|let's try by the door... this one isn't bad...|
|Ryan, clap your hands over my head to get the kids to look at me.... ugh, now they're clapping. Oh well, that's cute!|
|umm... okay, guess we're done.|
Other than that not much else happened. We took it easy, Ryan studied, I did laundry... kids ate some candy.
But it was a good day! And we did take time to celebrate that He is Risen!
