Sunshine, Bicycles, and Easter Eggs

spring 003 We’ve been enjoying the sunshine the past few days.  It’s been much to nice to hang out in the house, so we’ve even take work outside a few days this week!  Ashley and I set up a little “office” for ourselves.  Even with the umbrella, it was still hard to see the screens on the laptops.  From now on, I think I’ll leave my work in the house, and take a good book outside to read!

spring 010 Gracie finally learned to ride her bike – without training wheels – this past week.  She got a new bike for her birthday last summer – and despite lots of practice, she just couldn’t seem to get it.  Now she’s riding like a pro!  She’s even got the bruises on her legs to prove it (and this is the child that has been virtually bruise-free her entire life!)

spring 006 I don’t think it’ll be long until we can take the training wheels off of Ian’s bike too.  The only problem with that is that he pedals really fast but he watches his feet the whole time.  It might be beneficial to watch where he’s going instead!  You just never know what you might run into!

spring 012 This morning, my mom and I took Gracie and Ian to an “Eggstravaganza” at a local church.  spring 013 They put up a tent and have various “stations” set up where the kids can do crafts, get snacks, and have fun.  On the left, you can see Gracie coloring a fuzzy magnet craft, while Ian proudly displays his tatoo (right). 

spring 018 The egg hunts there are a madhouse!  There are SO many kids!  I was literally afraid that the kids would get trampled to death.  But, they wanted to try it.  spring 021 Ian’s age  group went first – they were allowed to get 10 eggs each. He counted his as he put them in his basket – the quickly found us and said “I’m done”.  Sure enough, he had exactly 10!  Gracie’s age group were allowed 12 eggs each – they had theirs hidden under straw.  She got in there, grabbed 12, and got out of there!

spring 034 This afternoon, we hit another egg hunt at my friend Sue’s church.  The kids were thrilled with all the candy.  And, instead of chocolate bunnies, they gave out multi-packs of candy bars.  Gracie & Ian both chose Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (which was good for me – they don’t tempt me!)

Are you enjoying your Easter weekend?  Please leave me a comment and tell me about it!

I am enjoying my Easter cuz
#1: I ain't doing the cooking-just have to bring strawberries, whip cream and those sponge cake cups for dessert
#2: the basket (yes-I am down to only one now) is packed and the teens have their goodie bags filled too-a few days ahead of the normal hurry and stuff it at midnight tradition
#3: No egg hunts-haven't done em in years and have no plans on doing one til tomorrow at the folks
#4: We're doing a brunch-with this cinnamon swirled bread to make cream cheese french toast, eggs, turkey bacon and fruit right after church-mmm (oh and snack on our dyed eggs)
#5: best of all-I get to say "He has risen" and anyone who knows what that means will reply-
"He has risen indeed!" love that! Plus, I don't sound like a Kook for once!

Happy Easter my friend!

Hey Heidi. It's Tajuana. Sounds like the kids had a great day. I'll have to post pics of the eggs my son dyed. He mixed some colors and came out with some interesting looking eggs.

As you know I've been busy moving things over to my new blog and should be done by the end of the month...yay. Here it is if you wanna check it out http://crossrhodesacademy.blogspot.com/
Pray you and yours have a blessed Resurrection Day.

Sounds like a fun day. The look on Ian's face in the pic with the tattoo is priceless!
