Easter in Pictures

It's been a few weeks since I've posted but I know you'll give me some slack, what with the addition of a new little person and all. I did manage to snag a bit of free time today, though, to update you on the little boy's first Easter. He has recently started flashing those cute little gums so I had to lead with a picture of him stylin' and smilin' in his Easter wear. :)

Easter was fantastic for the rest of us, too. We spent the holiday with both sets of grandparents in Hope, enjoying morning Mass and then watching Nathan happily devour candy and rummage through his basket. Once he ventured outside to try his new bubble gun, the big brother discovered toys weren't the only thing the bunny left. There were plenty of colorful eggs to search for, too! Although Nathan held onto that gun the whole time, he managed to spot every one. He also tried his hand at dying a few (and breaking a couple). Owen was content to bounce in the breeze and just take it all in. Here are a few quick snapshots of our Easter:

I hope everyone else's Easter was just as happy and I hope you continue to remember the reason for the season. Easter isn't just a day, it's a state of mind. Sure, the bunny presents were loads of fun and the ham-and-rib feast wasn't too bad either, but we should always give thanks and praise. This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad!
