He is Risen! He is Risen indeed! Allelujah! We had an exciting Easter weekend bunny hoppin’ around! We kicked it off Thursday night by heading to Montgomery to spend Easter with Shawn’s family. Friday evening the rest of the Clark clan joined us, and we all had a blast! Ava and Briggs LOVED being with their cousins!
Saturday morning we left Montgomery and headed to Huntsville to spend the rest of Easter with my family and my cousins, the Dierkers, from Ft. Worth. It’s the only time all year we get to see them, and we always have so much fun! The guys played golf Saturday morning. Once I got the kids napping (and Ben ‘babysitting’ while the kids napped – thanks Ben!), the ladies headed off to get our annual pedicures. Saturday evening, we had a crawfish boil – lots of fun. Shawn convinced Ava to hold one…eek!
Yes, she is wearing her bicycle helmet – she wore it all day (after riding on her bike).
Saturday night was a blast, and we had so much fun seeing everyone! Before we knew it, it was time for Easter Sunday. The kids woke up early (Briggs woke up super early…he must have been so excited about the Easter Bunny coming :p). The morning was quite hectic doing Easter baskets, breakfast, and getting ready for church – so no pictures. Ava wanted to take her Easter bunny to church, so she asked my mom (Honey) and Aunt Kathy. They told her she needed to ask her mommy or daddy. She said, “I’ll go ask Daddy.” I bet that will change when she starts asking to go on dates! Back to Easter Sunday – church was beautiful! It is one of my very favorite services as we are reminded of the awesome love we are all so very blessed with! A longer church service with a teething ten month old, though, isn’t always easy. After church, we rushed home to get family pictures so we could get Briggs fed and down for a nap!
After pictures and lunch (and Briggs got put down for a nap…sheesh!), Ava was ready to go play outside. She loved her Easter dress and shoes, so she insisted on wearing them all day! Honey got Ava a butterfly catching net, and it was a huge hit. Ava spent the afternoon chasing butterflies.
I love these pictures! After catching butterflies, she decided it was time for a joy-ride on her pink Harley.
And Easter would not have been complete without a ride on the tractor.
We had such a beautiful Easter, and we are so blessed with our families! What a way to celebrate our Lord’s sacrifice for us!
