Yesterday, we celebrated the Easter weekend with fun.
After a busy morning of soccer games and house showings, we all got together for an egg hunt and an early dinner.
The skies, which had previously been toying with the idea of snowing, gave us a break long enough to get out and do our thing.
It was cold out, so The Man of the House stayed inside to keep the baby warm.
I was the official picture-taker so I braved the chilling wind in order to fulfill my duty. And, as a mother, to admonish my teenage son for being out in shorts and flip flops!
(Not that the girls in their dresses were much warmer.)
Then, it was back inside to get warm and visit some more.
And for the kids to go through their baskets!
In other neat Easter news, we had baby chicks hatching yesterday.
A few weeks ago, we decided to hatch some of our own eggs to see the process.
Somehow, without trying, we timed it perfectly for this weekend.
As I showed our home to three couples yesterday, each had to take a peek at the chicks already hatched and those emerging from their eggs.
Pretty amazing stuff!
My favorite part was hearing them peep inside the egg, before even a crack had appeared.
All in all, it was a lovely day. How wonderful to experience our granddaughter's first Easter, and spend time with cousins and extended family.
Today, we are celebrating Easter with reverence
and abounding Gratitude.
May your Easter be filled with the same.
