Happy Easter!

We had a weekend full of Easter fun, celebrating the Resurrection of our Savior!  The kids spent Friday night with Grandma and Grandpa, which gave Micah & I a wonderful date night and a chance to sleep in on Saturday :)  It was Mikayla’s first night away from home, and she did great!  The kids had an Easter egg hunt, dyed Easter eggs, went to the park, and came home with lots of “treasures.”  I don’t have any pics of their sleepover, but trust me, they had a great time.  I did too… can we do that every weekend?  I don’t remember the last time I had that much sleep!

Saturday afternoon was spent with the Hutchison clan.  The cousins enjoyed an Easter egg hunt together, and we all had a great time eating yummy food!

This morning we went to Easter services at Harvest Community Church (where we had a record attendance of over 400 people, woo hoo!).  Mikayla wore Easter dress #2 and Eli also wore his “Easter clothes.” :)  The kids each received a balloon in Sunday School, and had fun letting them go in our backyard when we got home.

I just love this picture of Mikayla because it shows a very real smile and joyful eyes :)

We are so thankful to serve a Risen Savior!  Today is a day of celebration for all He has done for us.  We are certainly blessed beyond measure.
