Big Al picked up Prudence on Friday and brought her to the lake, because her daycare was closed for Good Friday. She was ready to see Hudson when he finally arrived Friday night. Saturday morning was lazy, and just how I like them. Shug and Big Al made waffles and we lounged around in our pajamas for a bit. Prudence and Hudson had a blast screeching and running up and down the halls. Emily and Andy joined us right after lunch.
When Hudson awoke from his nap we dyed Easter eggs. Both kiddos were very patient as we waited for our eggs to change colors. When the eggs were dyed and finally dried we headed outside for an Easter egg hunt. Both Prudence and Hudson loved hunting eggs. We hid a mixture of real eggs and plastic eggs filled with goodies. Hudson didn't quite understand the concept just yet. He knew the plastic eggs had treats inside, so when he found an egg, he wanted to open it right away instead of just putting it in his basket and waiting till the end to open his eggs. He also didn't understand why the real eggs didn't open. However, he did find one that had cracked, and of course, he had to investigate what was inside. He picked some of the middle of the egg out with his finger and said "Yum!". So I guess we like boiled eggs!
Sunday morning was a little hectic with three families all trying to get ready for church at the same time. To my surprise, we were all ready early and had time to take a few snaps of the kids in their Easter outfits before church. Those two are adorable! We attended Mymama's church and enjoyed a wonderful sermon by her pastor. Plus, Mymama got to show off her family! After church, we were joined by Kathie and Kate. We ate a delicious Sunday lunch, and prepared to go home.

Easter is such a special time of year. A time for enjoying family, but also a time for remembering Jesus and his ultimate sacrifice. I'm so thankful for that sacrifice he made for me, and strive to remember the true meaning of Easter not only on this day, but every day of the year.
