Holiday weekends are always busy for us. Easter was no exception. Our celebrations started a week early this year. Last Sunday we went to Dane's grandparent's house, and while it was strange to get together prior to the holiday it was nice to visit without feeling rushed. Rowan loved hunting for eggs and playing with all of the kids.
Easter Sunday started with a small egg hunt (and spreading Easter grass all over the floor) in the living room, before we got ready for church. Our church does a big Easter breakfast every year. It is so nice to visit with our wonderful church family! After breakfast and a great Easter service we went to our first of three family gatherings! Egg hunts, lots of food, and even more candy made up the rest of the day. Oh, and visiting the brand new baby goat! (Apparently, we are goat farmers now...I will have to fill you in on that in at a later time.)
Some little boy failed to nap more than 20 minutes all day, so he began to lose his cool around stop three. Other than that, I would call the day a huge success. I love spending time with our family. While holidays are busy, they are filled with love.
Things that our holiday was not filled with...the Easter bunny! This is Rowan's second Easter and I have still not gotten his picture taken with the Easter bunny...#momfail! Does lack of tradition count as a tradition?!
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend!
