Happy Easter

our family of four went to the ag museum saturday for some easter fun--we weren't sure what to expect, but we had a great time!

the first thing the girls wanted to do was to ride the carousel
next came the train
and the bunny--notice:leigh wanted no part!

when we got to the bunny he was on break...we were number 3 or so in line. someone behind us in line ran up their while he was on break to get her picture in the egg--at that moment the bunny came back and the lady in front of us (she didn't know the little girl) said, "you'd better get out of there or the bunny is gonna sit on you". she ran screaming away and has that lady to blame for hating the bunny for the rest of her life! i would have been so mad if that had been my child!
and then it was time to ride horses
as y'all all know, leigh has an obsession with horses. the funny thing is is that saturday was her first day to actually ride one. she was a little nervous getting on but let out this great big belly laugh that i wish i had on video as soon as she got on!
she also got her first hotdog-yummy!
and there were several games to play and they got their faces painted
we look forward to going next year as a family of 5!

honey made the girls beautiful pink easter dresses
they had fun checking out their baskets
after church we went to my moms house where she has had both sides of their family come for easter for the last 27 or so years! this year easter just happened to fall on doe and dub's 64th wedding anniversary so the cakes were in honor of them
as usual, mom had everything set beautifully
the munchkins loved their table and their special egg shaped plates

and of course, we had to hunt eggs...
we had a wonderful day celebrating the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior. zeb and i have really enjoyed teaching the girls what easter is all about.

on a side note, zeb and i have been reading an excellent book. i would recommend that everyone go to their bookstore or order it online. it is the heart of the cross by boice and ryken. there are 21 short devotionals. we aren't finished with it, but i think it will be something that we will read every year. even though "easter" is over--order it and read it!
