pier's first easter

Happy Easter friends! Today is full of JOY!  Easter is one of my favorite days of the year, and much like Christmas, there's a certain giddiness that takes over when sharing holidays with little ones.  Especially when that holiday is so central to our faith! It's days like today that we miss our friends and family the most, but we had the best day celebrating as our little family of three.

We began the day by dressing Pier in his Easter best and giving him his first Easter basket! 

I think he liked the basket more than the toys ;)

Then we headed to mass to celebrate one of the most sacred liturgies we get to experience as Catholics.  And it's exciting to say Alleluia for the first time in weeks!!!

We were graced with the most BEEEAUTIFUL weather today -- which was much appreciated after an Indiana winter!  It was a perfect 75 degree spring day filled with birds chirping and flowers blooming.  These are just a few flowers in my yard right now!

We planned it so in between nap times we could eat at our favorite place for a nice Easter dinner.  Brad and I actually ate there last year for Easter as well, so we think it will be an Indiana tradition from here on out.  This year we had a very active boy who loved eating the menu and walking around the farm looking at the cows!  I mean, they even had baby chicks you could pet. 


I hope you had a peaceful day celebrating with those you hold dear.  Thanks be to God for giving us this gift!
