On Sunday the whole gang headed off to church. We were so excited to go and worship. This is the first Easter I have felt truly humbled, excited, and saved. Because of the cross, because of the rising, I will have eternal life. It was a wonderful service, and we are so blessed to have some family there with us.
Before going to church, we tried to get a family picture.
This kind of looks like Miles is smiling, but...
...it's really just the beginning of this...
Maybe he will stand and take a picture?
Nope! We will just try when we get home from church.
As you can see, it didn't get any better.
So much for a nice family picture. Oh, well. It really captures a certain little someone asserting his independence all.the.time.
After church, Mom and the gang got on the road back to Iowa. Keriann & Derrick joined us for a delicious Olive Garden dinner. It was delicious!
When we got home, it was time for Miles to get his Easter "basket" from us and Keriann and Derrick.
We got Miles this little sandbox. I just took a tote, filled it with blue play sand and some toys, and that's it. It was a huge hit!
Keriann & Derrick got Miles this slide. He jumped right on it to go down.
And got stuck. Haha! It's pretty steep, and his shoes made him just stop.
The age for the slide says 18 months, but since Miles is a bit of a giant, maybe it should have been a bigger one? Later we took off his shoes, and he went down it just fine.
Then he tried to go up it, of course.
Then we busted out some sidewalk chalk this evening and got busy drawing.
I think he had more on him than on the sidewalk:)
And a little video for your viewing pleasure.
Happy Easter, my friends!
