Easter weekend

He is Risen!
He is Risen indeed!

Happy Easter!
I hope you and your family had a great day celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus!
We sure did!

As usual it was a busy, fun filled holiday weekend.
 Here's a little peek at some of the festivities...

Our church had a really cool event called Walk to the Cross.
We went to the family/kid friendly version on Wednesday which was awesome!
It had different stations that walked you through the events in the Bible leading up to the crucifixion.
Each station had different hands on activities for the kids which helped it all come to life.
The pictures above are of the triumphal entry, the cleansing of the Temple, Jesus washing the disciples feet, Jesus as the Good Shepherd, identifying sin in our life and Jesus nailing our sin to the cross.

 On Friday we went to the Good Friday service at our church.
It was awesome.

Then on Saturday our community group hosted an Easter Egg hunt for our community. 

Sunday morning the kids opened their Easter baskets 

and searched for eggs.
This year I hid money inside since I was so over candy! 
Mackenzie was trading Wesley for the pennies because she thought they were prettier than the other coins. 
If she only knew. 

Then we went to church with our family

and some friends.

And then we went to my aunt and uncle's house 
and hung out with all of my cousins and family. 

She's cute :)

I love him!

And we had our annual egg cracking contest.
The kids were so excited to be old enough to participate.

Oh and I made cake pops! 
And I swore to never make them again. 

Hope you guys had a great Easter weekend too!
