We had a special Easter this year… Himself was home to spend it with the family! It’s been so long since he’s had Easter with us. Normally he’s out on the ship over the holiday. As usual we all gathered at my parent’s home.
The babies hit the ground running. First target… their Easter baskets!
Little Hoss unloading his goodies. (I made their baskets several years ago).
Little Bird checks out her new flashlight. It’s pretty cool. There are no batteries, it charges by pumping a lever. It looks like a baby duck and the lever is his wing.
While they were playing with their new toys, Himself and I zoomed outside to hide plastic eggs.
Or should I say “semi” hide eggs? We did put a few in less obvious places to take a bit more searching. Next year will be even more hidden.
Then the hunt was on!
Little Hoss wanted his ‘Unca’ to help.
Bird was all over it by herself!
Found another one!
Looking for the golden egg?
Even Grandpa and Grandma got in on the action.
While “the women” got dinner finished out, Big J and Himself took the kids out to fly one of their new kites.
Up and away!
Chasing kite tails!
And where was Hoss during the kite flying?
Being an elk with his stick antlers!
Or just enjoying a good run around the yard.
Then it was time to sit down to dinner and give thanks for the true reason of the day… what Jesus did for us. And Little Bird said the prayer.
God is Great,
God is Good.
Let us thank Him
For our food.
