That evening one of those families joined us for supper at our house. We cooked hot dogs and spent the rest of the day visiting and letting the kids play together.
I served this cake as our dessert. It was another visual to remind us of the Easter story.

My intentions for Saturday was just to rest and have a carefree day. I did do some of that but I also spent time buying groceries, washing laundry, and catching up on household chores. Mothers never really do get to rest do they?
That afternoon I baked Easter cookies with the boys.
They really do love helping me in the kitchen.

Saturday evening we cooked on the grill and watched our Charlie Brown Easter video.

After eating I sent them out back to find our Resurrection Eggs. There are twelve in the set. I hid six on each side of the yard for each of them to find.

We took a family photo before heading to church.
Bro. Elias invited David to preach the Easter sermon at his church in Chiquimula. We loved getting to go to church as a family and being a part of the service. David did a wonderful job sharing the resurrection story!
That afternoon we joined some other families for an egg hunt. The boys enjoyed the fellowship with the other kids and we enjoyed visiting with the adults.

We had a great time this year celebrating Easter. Hope each of you had a wonderful time too.
