And it wasn't long before our family arrived to spend the day with us celebrating! Gramma, Grampa, Uncle Andy and Auntie Daria all made the trip down. Here the kids are opening some goodies from Gramma and Grampa.
Our city dwelling family quickly settled into the patio for some chill time on the prairie.
Until it was time to eat. Easter brunch in the dining room!
Barefoot kiddos playing around outside.
Get closer to each other, I kindly asked :)
Lots of fun with new throwing things outside.
Eventually Troy just started announcing, "Ok everybody, time for a walk in the woods!" I think he was kind of shocked when we actually went and did it!
We finished our night off at church in front of the giant peep wall :)
The kids attended church with us for this particular evening. They were given coloring books and some other trinkets when they walked in. Thanks, Mahomet Vineyard!
The kids went up to the front of church for the Kingdom Kids "declaration" at one point during service :)
I didn't see this one coming. Cass completely passed out on my shoulder while we were standing and worshiping during service. I picked her up so she could see the band and..... this.
Short nap.. because by the time we walked out, i was hearing "taking my picture mom!" on the church bench :)
