I hope you all had a fabulous Easter. HJ and I had a lot of fun with family and friends and got to enjoy some amazing weather.
We started our weekend with a birthday party for a friend of HJ, where I was able to see some old co-workers I haven’t seen in a long time. After, we went to my parents to color eggs with the cousins and have some fun outside.
We also had a birthday party for my dad, where we celebrated with some family friends and a few wild rounds of duck, duck, goose. I also learned that doing cartwheels isn’t as easy as it use to be, but at least I can still do it.
On Easter, HJ woke up to a surprise from the Easter Bunny. Which is surprising, because Saturday at the grocery store, the bunny approached HJ and HJ quickly declared, “YOU ARE A MAN. I CAN SEE YOUR FACE.”.
We headed back to my parent’s house for an Easter Egg hunt, where my sweet little boy shared his peanut butter cups. This was followed with a family trip to church, where HJ asked me things like, “Where is God?”
“How is he in my heart?”
“Why is Jesus hanging there?”
While looking at the stations of the cross, he pointed and said, “that is a bad man!”.
Somehow, he got it in his head that everyone going up for communion was getting skittles, and he about rushed the alter.
Clearly, we should spend a bit more time at church to help with all these confusions.
After church, we had a BIG Easter dinner and spent the rest of the afternoon outside. It was the perfect temp for running and laughing. And hula hooping.
Easter is one of those holidays I just love. It isn’t all about gifts and spending money, it’s about spending time with loved ones.
