We had a really nice weekend!  We dyed Easter eggs together.

Saturday the skies cleared for an Egg Hunt.  Every year we meet with friends at the kid’s elementary school and bring plastic eggs filled with candy then we put on an egg hunt for all the kids.

Unexpectedly both the big boys had play dates for Saturday afternoon so Rog, Asher and I got to go shopping for awhile.

Sunday Morning we woke up to Easter baskets.  Jack was the only one to notice there was an empty purple egg in his basket.  He asked why I thought there was an empty egg and I asked him what that would have to do with Easter and Jesus.  He knew immediately that it represented the tomb  because it was empty, Jesus is resurrected!

At church we took a family photo to remember the day.

When we got home at 2pm we had the boys clean up their mess downstairs while dad and mom got lunch/dinner ready.  We got a movie for Easter and the boys were motivated cleaners so we could all watch the movie Bedtime Stories after the playroom was clean and we had finished dinner.  It worked we had a great dinner and a clean playroom!  The boys loved the movie too.  It was a really relaxing way to end the day.
