|| Easter 2010 ||

The first long weekend of 2010 has come and gone and left me eager for all the other ones left to come!
Friday was the Good Friday service at church followed by a lot of rain and wind that kept us huddled inside for the day. Saturday we got ourselves up and out of the house nice and early for a trip down to Victoria to do some stroller shopping (more on that in a soon-to-come post) then an after dinner walk to Walmart and the park that caught us in a major downpour and had us totally and completely soaked by the time we got home.
Sunday I was up way too early to be at church to dance and be part of a scripture reading that left me ready for a nap by 10:00am. After church we ate our packed lunch and went to the BC Forest Museum to take in their Easter event. There were crafts, a bunny, scavenger hunt, unlimited train rides and a little bag of treats for the little ones at the end. We took Denay, still in her lovely Easter outfit (thanks Oma) and wandered around the grounds, completed the scavenger hunt and of course took a ride on the "choo-choo".

It was straight to Oma and Opa's for a nap after that.....for Denay only unfortunately.
When she finally woke up we dined on a feast of roasted whole chicken (filled to overflowing with stuffing of course), corn on the cob, herb and garlic mashed potatoes, gravy and homemade apple sauce and all topped off with yummy, yummy (best ever) Dutch Apple Pie (with french vanilla ice cream).

Here I am, 9:07 at night and I'm making myself hungry again :)

It was such a day full of joy and celebration and thanksgiving for the gift of Christ's ressurection.

What a good, gracious Father we serve!

Happy Easter.
