We began Easter by attending worship at our fabulous church. I can’t say enough good things about our church and our pastor and the people we have come to know and love there. I wouldn’t have wanted to celebrate Easter anywhere else.

After the service we promptly left and headed for my parents’ house in Memphis for lunch. My brother and sister-in-law came, along with my niece Erika (who’s just 6 months younger than Charlotte) and nephew Brayden, and my mom’s parents also were there. It was great to see everyone and spend time together as a family. We took a family portrait which turned out surprisingly well, given how difficult it is to get Char to be still and smile for a picture.
Lunch was yummy, and then it was time for the Easter egg hunt! Charlotte didn’t really hunt for eggs, but she loved carrying around her basket. My parents know how to have an egg hunt; cash and coins were in the eggs instead of candy! 🙂
And of course the day couldn’t end without my mom bringing out some silly head gear:
Charlotte loved taking those ears on and off.
We headed back to Jackson not long after that and spent a quiet evening at home. Charlotte discovered the fake grass inside her basket and was thoroughly fascinated by it.
All in all, it was a wonderful day. I am reminded daily of how blessed I am. I pray I never take my life for granted.
