And just like that!

We took the boys to ride Thomas the train last weekend. We knew when we were able to snap this picture of both boys smiling before we even walked out the door that perhaps this would be a different kind of day.
We asked the conductor who was walking by to take this picture and just like that, we were in uncharted territory. A place where every member of the family looks at the camera at the same time.We really are not sure where we go from here....perhaps to a professional photographer...(the last time we attempted that Tony and I both sweated through our clothes..and paid good money to do it.:))

Later in the weekend we went to our city Egg hunt. This picture is to document why Benjamin did not find many eggs.

Some of our dear friends met us there. Their little girl danced in the City wide recital immediately following the egg hunt. Payton and Benjamin were quite impressed.

After the dance recital the boys saw the Easter bunny but there was a long line to meet him. I told them, "Let's see him some other time." Payton looked at me like he was mortified and said, "He works so hard to give us all these eggs and we don't even have time to tell him thank you?" Needless to say We waited in line.
We pray your Easter weekend is the best. The resurrection power that was displayed the day Jesus walked out of the tomb is still on display the hearts and lives of all who offer Him our nothing in return for His everything! What an incredible gift! Have fun celebrating it. Blessing upon Blessing to you and yours!

I love Payton's gratitude! The poor, hardworking Easter bunny. We missed the Thomas thing - I was hoping to take John to that. It looks like it was fun! Don't you love family outings like that?

Many blessings on your resurrection day as well!

I just love to read your posts! We wanted to try to take Jack for the train adventure, but didn't make it. But, it looks like you all had a wonderful time and so much fun with that Easter Bunny!
I love Kelly's comment about "getting to share this next year". I know you are all so excited about the homecoming!
