Easter Sunday

Easter is such an amazing day!! Celebrating the resurrection of the Lord is truly AMAZING!! I LOVE EASTER!!!

This first collage is of The kids getting their Easter Baskets. They loved all the loot and Mia got a puzzle and loved it also. After they got their baskets we got ready and headed out to church.

Our church does a HUGE outreach ministry at the LA County Fairgrounds and thousands and thousands of people attend. It is a phenomenal ministry and I always love being a part of it. The first set of pictures is of us at the fairgrounds. It was a BEAUTIFUL day!!! It was sunny and clear and about 85 degrees (a bit too hot but nonetheless-- it was beautiful). It was as if the Lord was just up there smiling on us! One of the pictures in the collage is of the view of the mountains from where we were sitting. It was breathtaking!

This is the official-- not too good- picture we attempted to take while at the fairgrounds.

After Church we had all our family over for Easter lunch. We had an awesome meal (thanks to a lot of my brothers cooking that he did in our COOL NEW KITCHEN) and really enjoyed hanging out. It was a leisurely and enjoyable afternoon. The kids even got to swim in the cold pool-- they didn't care-- they are kids!!

It was a sad end to the day as I had to say goodbye to the boys and Kevin as they left for the Grand Canyon until Friday. I am so sad that Mia and I cant go but unfortunately the boys spring break is this week and mine is the following week so I just could not work it out to go. Anyway, I sent them off and they were very excited for their vacation. It is a happy ending to the week as on Friday I will be meeting Kev and the boys in Dumont and we will be there till Sunday. So, at least we get to spend a bit of time together as a family.

Anyway, that's it for now. Have a great week and I will post soon. I am soooooooo excited as tomorrow I get to meet a fellow adoptive mom and her Mia (and hubby too) at Disneyland!! They are out visiting family from Delaware so Disney will be fun!!! I will post pics soon!!
