Project 365 Day 99 - April 8th
Happy Easter!!! This day has been so much fun for our family. We started out by attending church for the first time as a family. It was also the first time I had attended in about 14 years and was long overdue. We chose to go to the SonRise Service that our new church held in the local park. I have to say that it was a wonderful service - and my kids were remarkably well-behaved for it being 6:30 in the morning.
When we came home, we had breakfast then the kids got to explore their baskets to see what the Easter Bunny brought for them. Daisha's basket contained some smaller items and a kickball; Keiran's had similar smaller items and the much-anticipated soccer ball. For weeks he has been telling us that the Easter Bunny was bringing him a soccer ball so I guess it's a good thing the rabbit came through. LOL
My in-laws joined us for a non-traditional Easter lunch/dinner before we headed outside for some fun. I took the kids to a neighboring field to play with their new balls while Tony hid the eggs. Daddy hiding treat-filled eggs for the kids to find has become a tradition in our family since we first did it as part of our first Easter together 6 years ago.
