Easter Weekend 2017

The joys of any celebration seem to be amplified 2x when you see it through your child's eyes.  A our church service on Sunday,  a young boy shared his testimony of his parents teaching him about Jesus and how He died for our sins on the cross. While Caroline is too young to understand the meaning of Easter. I pray everyday that she grows to love Jesus and that I provide an example for her through teaching. Sometimes it is really difficult to get out the door and to church on time due to nap time. I'm thankful that this Sunday we were able to celebrate Christ's resurrection by attending church.

The rest of our weekend was spent enjoying the beautiful springtime weather. Friday I took Caroline on her first egg hunt with her playgroup friends. She really did not understand the concept but enjoyed piling the eggs in the basket and then dumping them out again.

Saturday Caroline enjoyed her final introductory swim class. We signed her up for a 3 class session at our local YMCA. She loves the water and splashing during swim time. The only thing she did not like was going underwater. I can't wait to practice some of these skills in the pool once it opens!

We celebrated Easter a bit at home before church with a little Easter basket and family photo. Caroline's basket was filled with 2 Easter books, a light up bunny wand from the Target dollar spot, hide and squeak eggs and a few hair bows. 

Sunday after church we headed to have Easter lunch with Joe's family. We grilled steaks and enjoyed baked potatoes. I made this delicious broccoli salad as a side. Caroline enjoyed her first bite of watermelon and hunted Easter eggs in the yard.
