Easter weekend...

I know I haven't posted pictures in quite here are a few from Easter weekend! We had a great weekend.

On Saturday, we went to our church (James River Assembly... for their annual "Easter Express.") We had a great time. The kids got to have an Easter egg hunt and pet baby ducks, chicks and a goat, tour a school bus, ambulance and fire truck, make a craft and play in one of the coolest play lands ever!

After we came home...that evening we had another Easter egg hunt in the backyard.

Then on Easter morning, we were able to take our time because there were 4 services at church and the last one was at 1:00, which we went to! Pastor had asked those that could to go to the 1:00 service to make room for the many visitors they were expecting! And that they had...there were 15,211 in attendance for all 4 services!!! 106 people came forward to receive Christ in the main services, and 154 kids accepted Christ in the kids' services! What a great celebration of our Risen Savior!!!

Nate and Sarah met us at church and came to our house afterwards to hang out for the evening. I cooked dinner (Apricot glazed roasted pork tenderloin, baked sweet potatoes, steamed broccoli, macaroni and cheese, wheat cracked rolls and FLAN!!!) It was quite yummy, if I do say so myself :)! Then we played games for the rest of the evening and watched a movie after the kids went to bed.

It was a great weekend...
