We had a blessed Easter with family. My parents returned from Arizona/California late Saturday night, and still woke up early to be at our house (2 1/2 hour drive) by 9am on Easter Sunday. It was wonderful to see them, and share the kids excitement, church, and a wonderful Easter dinner. They took the kids shopping for Easter outfits last month, and loved seeing them all dressed up. FYI the kids got to pick what they wanted to wear...hence the difference between Abby and Sophie. Yes, it was difficult for me to stay out of it! After a wonderful walk in the sunshine my parents headed home and we headed off to see more family. We visited Grandma Bonnema and then went to Bill and Joan's for an egg hunt and a relaxing bbq. It was a perfect end to a very blessed day of rejoycing with family.
An aside: have I mentioned that I am leaving tomorrow night for Chicago with three of my wonderful friends? Thursday morning we will attend a taping of OPRAH!!!!!!!!!!! Needless to say, I can think of little else!!!!!!!!
