HE IS RISEN - Easter 2019

Easter is quickly moving up on my list of holidays.  The spring colors, the pretty dresses, and above all else - He is risen!  What better celebration could there be?

Our Easter festivities were simple and perfect in many ways.

We stood in a very long line to take pictures with real bunnies at our local indoor zoo, Pet World.  The kids were patient and mostly content during the hour wait.  Our donation to take the pictures went towards rabbit rescue and that absolutely makes it all worth it, even though Emily ended up not being a super big fan of the bunnies touching her.  My sweet baby girl.

On Good Friday, my mom came out to spend the night with us.  Rob grilled up some salmon and we dyed eggs with the girls.  This isn't a tradition I particularly look forward to but we enjoyed doing something special while Grandma was with us, which the kids really loved.

Saturday morning we went over to the club for an Easter egg hunt and to see the bunny.  It was the perfect size crowd and the girls knew what they were doing this year.  Brooke picked up every pink and purple Easter egg in her direct path, which brings me great joy.  The weather and the company made it a beautiful morning, even if we are 2 for 3 with the Easter bunny.  Brooke only agreed to sit next to him if Grace was doing it too.  Maybe next year?

Finally - the bunny visited and the Easter dresses were donned to head off to mass in celebration.  It was a beautiful gathering and we left ready to chow down on the feast my husband prepared.  My parents, my sister, Rob's uncle and his girlfriend all made the trip out to celebrate the day with us.  I don't think our girls could have enjoyed the day more.  There was an egg hunt that consisted of hidden eggs, bubbles and chalk, plus all the sweets little tummies could handle.

It was definitely a glorious Easter.

What is your go to Easter activity?
