This year, I decided to take a long weekend for Easter. I took both Friday and Monday off, and I think this was a great plan! We've all had a nice time together, enjoying the spring weather and the holiday.
This was the first year we colored Easter eggs. On Saturday, Grammie and Grampa Perry came over and helped.
And then we had a little egg hunt in the back yard:
Later that afternoon, we went to the park to enjoy the playground and fly our kite:
On Easter Sunday, we went to church and enjoyed celebrating Easter with our St. Mark's family. Elmer and Arthur both wore nice Easter suits (although Arthur was a little grumpy about having his picture taken just then).
Elmer liked watching Chris play the organ for the postlude:
There was an egg hunt for the kids after the service, both boys had a fun time finding eggs with the other kids. Arthur knew just what to do:
After church, and naps, we went over to Aunt Jennifer and Uncle Rob's for dinner with all the Perrys. The food was all great, and the boys had a lovely time playing with their cousins. We didn't get home and get the boys in bed until almost 8, so they were pretty tired. We're all enjoying a quiet day at home today. I'll work 2 days this week, and then we're off to California for a wedding and another long weekend for me!
