First leg of the Tour
Our kids had eleven days off for Easter and Spring Break starting on Maundy Thursday. Unfortunately Nathan only had Good Friday off of school and work. We didn't let that stop us from having a great time though. Thursday while Nathan was at school/work the kids and I enjoyed a low key day at home. Friday all of us left bright and early for my parents house. That afternoon we celebrated my nephew Joey's 8th birthday (picture #1). I got to decorate his cake. :o) Traditionally my family has a Good Friday meal together before heading to my parents church for their evening service. This year as part of a beautifully reflective service I even got to step in and direct the choir as the director was out of town and my mom happened to have volunteered me. After church and again Saturday most of my family was at my parents for some visiting and cousin bonding time (picture #2-Lydia and Hannah) before we headed to Nathan parents. It always amazes me how much we can pack in during such a brief visit.
