Easter Weekend

Last year we started a tradition we hope to continue with our family for years to come. For Easter both sets of our parents travel to Bowling Green to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord. Eric's mom and dad had a scheduling conflict this year and couldn't make it, but my family arrived on Friday night. We went back to their hotel to swim and pretty much relaxed the rest of the night. Saturday my brother and Eric went their own way while the rest of us headed to town. After some thrifting and lunch we took Eli to Chuck E' Cheese. As always, it was a major it!

We then came home and cooked hamburgers and dyed eggs!

After my parents went back to the hotel for the night I stayed up late setting the formal table and getting ready for the Easter Bunny.

Eli has been sleeping so amazingly well this week and although it means early weekend mornings, it's a small price to pay!! He woke up at 7:00 Sunday morning and since he isn't allowed in our bed, I lied beside him in the bedroom floor for a few minutes. He put his little arms around me. It was just such a sweet moment. Anyway, we finally came out to see what the Easter Bunny had brought!

My parents arrived a short time later and we took a few pictures before heading to church.

I haven't mentioned it, but I'm pretty much the worse cook in the world. I forgot to bake the ham last night which meant it wasn't ready until 6:00 last night. . .I'm not even lying!! So, I improvised and served deli ham. Ha! We got a good laugh!

It was a delightful Easter weekend surrounded by wonderful family as we celebrated the EMPTY TOMB!!!
