Easter has always been one of my favourite times of year. It is normally beautiful this time of year in the Vancouver area. Flowers are starting to bloom, and the cold rainy weather is starting to disappear. Though I still don’t mind a good day of rain for puddle jumping and I look forward to getting Everly her first pair of rain boots so we can puddle jump together.
Jason’s parents are coming down for the weekend from Kelowna. They’ll be squishing in visits with us and Jason’s brother Braydon. They have not seen Everly since she was a few days old. Though they have seen all the photos, and had Skype visits with her.
We’ll also be going for a little picnic, hopefully the weather stays nice through the whole weekend. My family has always gone for a picnic Easter weekend. I have many great memories going to Stanley Park, playing in the playground there, or running on the beach trying to fly a kite. I’m hoping that this tradition of a picnic will continue now that Everly has joined our family. I’m a sucker for family traditions.
For us though, this weekend is also about the true meaning of Easter. I’m sure many have seen churches putting signs up welcoming those in the community to join them for their Easter Sunday church service. We’ve had a couple invites on our door from churches in our neighborhood. We believe Easter has much less to do about a bunny, and that is has everything to do with Jesus who died on a cross and rose again 3 days later. For us Easter is a Christian celebration.
Hope everyone has a great weekend, relaxing and enjoy the sun!
