Birthdays and Easter blended into one this year, as we celebrated the birthdays of two little grandsons the day before Easter. Jake & Cole are now three years old!
Birthday cards and Easter treats prepared for the grandkids - six Easter bags delivered in person over the weekend (two, a few days later!), and four Easter gifts mailed off to Texas.
A beautiful spring day on Easter Sunday - a fun, relaxing picnic together with our youngest son in place of a big Easter Dinner (as we had gathered as family the day before for birthdays).
Thanking God for ...
