Happy Belated Easter!

Happy Belated Easter, my friends! We spent the weekend road-tripping with my family to Indianapolis. Over 900 miles in three days, eleven people in a fifteen passenger van crammed full of us and our belongings. It was fun! Its funny how you notice all the big white vans you pass by.....:)

We went out to see my brother, Vince, and his fiance', Jen. They're expecting a baby girl anytime....so we went to them to celebrate the holiday. We were also able to see Nathan's Aunt Jodi and Cousin Christina during our short jont to the city.

We took the kids to an Easter Egg hunt in Carmel.....they boasted they had 10,000 eggs. Unfortunately, they probably had 9,000 kids and their parents show up.....and I found out those parents love to egg hunt as much as the kids....so their were plenty of adults helping their kids pick up eggs....even for the 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. At least we killed 90 minutes in preparing, to have it end in literally 90 SECONDS! I missed our local hunts....:( We also went to a shower given by Jen's parents in Carmel. It was a great evening to meet Vince and Jen's friends, co-workers and some of her family. Here's one of Brenda's beautiful flowers....

And what did our kids look forward to the most? Well, besides Uncle Vinny....the POOL! And HOT TUB! We spent a few hours here. It helped run off some serious steam.

We had a safe trip, and since Iowa has been stuck in a yucky, rainy, 40 degree weather belt for the past 2 weeks....Nathan came with!

Hopefully you were able to enjoy the beautiful holiday, and celebrate in the Rising of Jesus!
