Our Easter Weekend

I know this is a bit belated, but I thought I would at least post a few thoughts along with some pictures of our Easter Weekend.

Our weekend began on Good Friday when I took Faith to the library where Easter Seals had some fun activities planned for the morning. Faith called it an Easter Party. She saw some of her friends and had fun dying eggs. She also played BINGO for the first time ever! She kept saying "BINGO" even when she didn't have a BINGO, I think she just liked everyone's reaction when she said it!

It was a very good thing we got out when we did because as Faith and I headed back home it began to rain which later turned into snow. We had been planning on going to church that evening but decided not to go out in the cruddy weather. Saturday was bright and sunny so we celebrated by going to the China Star!

On Easter Sunday, we actually made it to church by 9:30 a.m. I think it is the first time we have ever made it to church that early! The sermon was very good and although it lasted about 1 1/2 hours, Faith did great through the whole thing.

After a pit stop at home it was off to a delicious dinner at our friends, Bob and Lola's home. It was wonderful and Faith especially liked the fudge swirl vanilla ice cream that she had for dessert. I couldn't resist the cheesecake with raspberry sauce and Rob tried something new - wild rice pie.

After yet another pit stop at home, it was off to do some serious kite-flying. Faith had picked out a Buzz Lightyear kite and couldn't wait to get Buzz flying! The wind was a little strange as it would blow then suddenly stop then blow again then change directions. It made it a little challenging to keep our kites in the air. Buzz did great at first but after a few crashes he just didn't want to stay up in the air. It was great fun nonetheless. We'll have to get Faith a new kite and go kite-flying again.

At one time, Faith let go of the green handle and since Rob was wearing roller blades I was the one who had to go running after the kite!

Kites flying high!

All in all, it was a very nice and blessed Easter weekend as we celebrated the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior!
