Happy Belated Easter

We had a lovely Easter. We made our Resurrection Garden on Friday, a tradition we started last year. I guess I didn't take a picture of this year's so here is last year's version. We used a potato for the tomb. 

 Saturday, we had our own egg hunt in the backyard.

 Sunday, we went to church, had our Easter Feast, and watched some videos of the Life of Christ found here.
My girls looked so pretty in their little Easter dresses. I am so lucky to be their mom. We had such a lovely day celebrating our Savior and spending time together. We are so blessed. 

A few other spring happenings: 
 Last weekend we attended the Tulip Festival, one of our favorite springtime activities.
 I love how Amelia's hair matches this tulip, we didn't notice it at until we got home and looked at the pictures.

Justin used his mad photography skills to document the Lunar Eclipse. This was a few hours before the eclipse. 

About 15 minutes into the eclipse.

This was about 40 minutes into it. It's hazy because some clouds had moved in front of the moon. Unfortanetly, right after this heavy cloud cover, prevented us from seeing the full eclipse. Still neat though.
