What a beautiful day it was to celebrate that He is risen! What a gift to share such a powerful time of worship with these people. So very thankful for Jesus and the way He loves us and I'm beyond grateful to be Easter people!

We met up with my parents and the Henshaws for their church's Easter egg hunt. We love, love, love going to this event every year and it was extra special to be in their new church facility this year! Fun fact. Grace City moved into what used to be Wesley Chapel and Wesley Biblical Seminary where J worked and did Seminary! They did an amazing job renovating the worship space. It's beautiful!
While we waited for the hunting to begin, the kids enjoyed playing on the inflatables....
And checking out the dunking booth.
Emma's group was up first. I think the planners may have over estimated the number of people who would be attending because there was a ridiculous number of eggs...like the kids filled their buckets and then filled bags as well!
Walker's group went next. Again, so many eggs!
Like I said, so many eggs. This is our stash that we took home😳
These pictures are out of order. Oh well. Walker was pumped to visit with the police officer on duty! He asked him if he could see his hand cuffs😂
I think this one needs a frame! So sweet!
Thursday was a very busy Easter party day! 4 of us had egg hunts and so we had to divide and conquer! My sweet friend Amanda wrangled Emma at their class party. She sent me lots of pictures and they seemed to have a great time. The rain held off long enough to hunt for a few eggs in the mud😬.
We all went to EKs party but these two made a pit stop and decided to hang out with Haley and her class. They loved playing with the 5th graders!
I failed to take any pictures at EKs party. You win some. You lose some.
EK performed in her dance company's spring performance last weekend. The ballet was divided up into two different parts. The first part was called Classical Symphony. It was a piece designed by the studio director to show the progression of a ballet dancer so it resembled what their training in classes looks like. It started out with the apprentice class and worked its way up to the high school girls. I really enjoyed seeing how the intense training prepares the girls for their future as dancers. There was a very happy little girl right up front. She enjoyed every single second on that stage and in the words of her sweet brother, "she rocked it!"
And one thing is for certain, our dancing girl is loved deeply! It was a 2 1/2 hour performance and this crew made it through every minute!😂
Now it's one week off and then rehearsals start up again to start preparing for the next ballet!
