I hope your Easter was lovely!  Our day started off bright and early!  I thought I'd share a couple of pictures of our first Easter in Louisville.

It was a small Easter this year, as just last week we had a house full of family in town for Luke's birthday (more on that in another post).

A perfect day for egg hunting.  Still in their PJs, the kids ran around the backyard trying to find all the easter eggs that the Easter bunny hid.

After egg hunting, we had had a nice breakfast of mostly jelly beans, scrambled eggs and cinnamon buns.  Nothing like dosing the kids up on sugar before we head to Mass.  After Mass, we strolled a bit through Cherokee Park and took some pictures.

Here, the kids are saying, "Mom, why are you taking the picture so the sun is directly in our eyes?"  Or Luke is thinking, "Mom, when can we go home so I can get out of my church clothes?"

The rest of the day was spent hanging out at home playing, relaxing and cooking!  We had a nice family Easter dinner and Luke's favorite dessert - lemon pound cake.

I hope you all had a blessed Easter and celebrated it with the ones you love and hold dear to your heart.
