Easter... a week late.

I know I was supposed to post about Easter last week, but that just didn't happen. I was busy with visitors and school and a quick trip out of town and baby showers and the list goes on and on. I so appreciate the lovely ladies that guest posted for me in my absence. Clearly, I was not really resting, as I have so many things on my plate this month, but I did take a short rest from blogging, which was so good for me during this crazy time. During my break, I thought it would be uplifting to hear some Godly women talk about the practice of REST. I hope you enjoyed their posts as much as I did. {And if you missed them, read them here... Olivia // Sarah // Jami // Blair!}

And, you know what? I am going to take another blogging break at the the end of the month while I finish up the semester... so you can look forward to some more amazing guest posters in a few weeks. Until then... I'm back.

Easter was beautiful this year. I feel like we celebrated the resurrection of Christ just right. My sister flew in the night before the holiday and got to go to church with us on Sunday morning. After worshiping with our beloved church family, we headed out to my cousin's house for a day of grilling, playing with cute kids, egg hunts and dodge ball... a game in which I failed miserably, got out every single time, and fell backward and landed all 130 pounds of me on a six year old child. Oops. I scraped my hand. He shed a few tears and then we gave each other knuckles and got back in the game... where I continued to get pegged out within the first 30 seconds of every game. Oh well. The day was beautiful and relaxing and I am so thankful to live close to family in our new town!

{P.S. Rumor has it that I might be getting a beach cruiser! My cousin's husband sells them and we might have just placed an order on Easter. I can't wait!!! I've wanted one ever since we moved here.}

Church with slister.

Sometimes Micah jokes that he doesn't want to have any kids. He just wants to play with other people's. At least, I think it's a joke... ;)

Ha ha dodgeball, I used to love that game in school. I was always picked last for teams though :( I didn't make it long either. I so want a beach cruiser too. I hope you get one. It sounds like you have a beautiful Easter.

your Easter looks perfect and relaxing. Nothing better than games and bbq-ing with the family. And I love that orange shirt (my hubby swoons when I wear orange!).
