Easter weekend

 I've been writing posts for next week for my A to Z Challenge and I realized I wanted to remember Easter weekend!

We went to the egg hunt sponsored by our children's ministry at church. It was fun to see the girls. Our sweet youngest granddaughter has never been around people due to covid cautions so even though we signed up for a time slot and families were spread out over times throughout the morning, the crowd was the largest number of people she had ever been around. She was a tad overwhelmed! Our older granddaughter (big 5 years old!) wanted to find the golden egg! I'm apologizing now for photo overload.

gran and pops (yes, it was cold -
we never know in Alabama)

and they are off to hunt the eggs

do you want to see the bunny?

She definitely wanted to see the bunny and then
proceeded to cry because she couldn't put
the bunny to night night like she does with
her stuffed animals. Lots of people, live rabbits,
balloons everywhere = overload.

there was a craft area and this bunny was
so cute!!!!

On Easter Sunday, our church worshiped in a local football stadium. We have had limited number/reservation only in person worship and it was truly amazing for all of us to worship together in one place. The weather was magnificent - so sunny that many had sunburned cheeks and shoulders! There were over 3,000 of us gathered together to celebrate the risen Christ! 

Mark and I both worked on Easter morning (remember I actually work at a church) - he was in the parking lot and I was at the Welcome Center so our daughter, son-in-law, and grandbaby went to our son, daughter-in-law, and 5 year old granddaughter's church. They also worshiped outside.

she was warm in the
sun and took a
little snooze

After worship, we all went to my mother-in-law's house to have lunch together with Mark's siblings and their families.

very talented sister-in-laws

We also had dinner on Saturday night at our son and daughter-in-law's lovely home and it was delicious and Mark and I played in the playroom with the girls . . .and I didn't take a single photo!

I'm still in shock that my children are grown and we have grandchildren. It seems like just a year or so ago that we were wrangling our own kids to church each week.
