A Fun-Filled Easter Holiday

Holidays are always a blast. Not only did we get to celebrate that Jesus died for our sins this weekend and rose again on the 3rd day, but we got to celebrate it with fun traditions and family.

We always try to see both families on holidays whenever it's possible. This year, with my parents being back in the US, we split up Easter weekend. Saturday we went to my parents house with Josh and Chrissy and spent the day together, had dinner together, and we all slept there. Sunday morning we went to church and then came home and did the traditional Easter basket opening (for Mckenna) and did Mckenna and adult Easter egg hunts. Mckenna had the hunting down, but grew tired of it about 75% of the way through and went to play with her doctor kit. The adult version of the Easter egg hunt was a blast. My parents put cash into eggs and hid them. Each of the 4 of us took turns going and finding one egg. We all got a little competitive to try to get the most money because whoever got more money got a BONUS! It was awesome....and really fun!!

After all the Easter morning fun, Ronnie, Mckenna and I jumped in the car and headed down to Tucson for some family fun with Ronnie's extended family. Mckenna slept the whole way (which made for an enjoyable drive). When we got there we all ate lunch, relaxed, played, and did another Easter egg hunt.

All in all it was an incredible holiday weekend. We are so blessed to be able to celebrate such an important holiday with such incredible family. Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. He is RISEN!!!
