It was a different Easter to say the least. BUT we enjoyed the weekend and did the usual things just in an odd order.

We went to church at our usual time on Friday for a Good Friday service, but dressed as though it was Easter. Following church we spent some time taking a few pictures until the restaurants opened (12:30).

Friday night we had an Easter dinner with our good friends the Volstads and Duncans. Bailey hid eggs for the little ones so the boys got a little huntin' in. We're all missing home quite a bit so getting together was much needed.

Saturday morning the Easter Bunny came to our house...why not, everything else was being done in a strange order.

Finally Easter Sunday...Nick went to work and we decorate eggs and enjoyed a play date at the mall.

Sunday night we met Nick at church for the Easter service.

This Easter weekend turned out to be great. We experienced all the traditional fun stuff but it wasn't a distraction from what Easter is all about. Nothing was rushed and we got to focus on Jesus. Happy Happy Easter!
