a lovely living


He is risen! He is risen indeed!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a blessed Easter! We enjoyed a great day with gorgeous weather which was appropriate for the occasion. Our morning started off with a touching church service that kept Jesus and his sacrifice at the forefront of my mind all day. Hearing and reading John 3:16 today had a much bigger impact than on most days, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

After a great start to the day, we headed to the Penn State Arboretum to take a few pics of the kids and then made our way to visit both of our families. I thought I’d share some of the shots I captured during our day, including all of the highs and the lows ;)

This would be Madelyn prancing through the fresh mulch…


…and me explaining she cannot go through the mulch…


…and Madelyn in complete disgust that I could tell her ‘no’ to such a thing.




On to an Easter egg hunt at DeDe and Poppop’s. Madelyn sought out every piece of candy….


…and Jack was out for the eggs with the cash!




By this point she had played in the creek, rolled around in the back of a truck and eaten 10 too many crackers. At least she likes to dress like a girl!


Soccer, of course.


And a little guy time.

The bonus of a busy day is that they were out like a light when we got home!
