Reflections on Easter Weekend

We had a really lovely Easter weekend.  We began our festivities on Good Friday with some yummy strawberry and cream scones and a Bible lesson on the Last Supper from Grapevine Studies.  Then we spent the day just enjoying each other as a family, doing some of our traditional Easter activities, and preparing an Easter dinner for our extended family that evening.  

Saturday the rain held off long enough for us to have tons of fun at our church's Easter Eggstravaganza.  There the kiddos had a blast hunting candy-filled eggs, taking horse rides, and playing with the baby animals borrowed from a local farm.  We had a wonderful turnout from our community and everyone had a great time together!  That evening at home we let the kiddos dig into their Easter baskets--a little early, yes, but Sunday mornings always seem so busy that we wanted them to be able to take their time a little.

Easter Sunday was truly blessed!  Our worship service at church was so good and it was great to be with our loving church family.  Afterwards we enjoyed lunch at Cracker Barrel with our family and then a nice long nap when we got home (or at least I did--my hubby made sure the kiddos were quiet for me, bless him!).  We wrapped up our evening at my parents' house watching the final episode of The Bible miniseries on the History Channel.  My family has really enjoyed watching it.  

Here is our weekend in pictures:

What a great couple of days! We use Grapevine Studies for our daily Bible lesson. We are doing the Old Testament and have REALLY enjoyed it! The kids have learned so much!
