We had a great Easter. The girls and I headed to church - ohhhh we were ten minutes late - but we got there. The only available seating was in the back in the fellowship hall. We sat next to Mark and the kids. In fact there weren't even any hymn books left.
Usually, our church services start at 10:45 during the school year and 9:00 during the summer. Easter - we have two services 7:00 and 10:00 with some sort of breakfast in between. Every Easter, there is a family or two who are late. This year - there were about five families who came into church who gave me a very confused look. "Don't worry - it happens every Easter - you're in time for communion" I give them a hug - because of course, they come in at five different times - We all smile - because it's confusing - we're used to the routine - and laugh at ourselves because change is odd.
This Easter, we decided to go to the waterpark. We all chipped in some money and bought a birthday package. Mark's grandpa just had a birthday, so we put "Happy Birthday Great-Grandpa" on the cake. The kids ate pizza, sloppy joes, and chips.
We played all day long.
We lazied ourselves in the lazy river. We squealed down the slides. We relaxed in the hot tub.
And oh! We ate cake!
