We had a great time celebrating Griffin's second Easter in Longview this year. His first Easter was just a few days after he was born, so this was his first real experience with all the fun this holiday has to offer.
We started things off by attending Abby and Z's church, where Griff was a very attentive listener (at least during all the beautiful music). He was a little too chatty for the sermon, so he spent some quality time with Daddy in the lobby during the rest of the service....and I hear he made lots of new friends out there too :)
Then we had an excellent meal prepared by the grandparents, including an awesome Easter Bunny cake made by Abby, and wrapped things up by enjoying a beautiful day just relaxing in their backyard. Griff had so much fun exploring all the goodies in his Easter basket and running around outside. These days, "go" and "outside" are his FAVORITE words. I think he may have had a little too much fun though, because he was waking up hours earlier than normal, refusing to nap in the car, and wanting to stay up way past his bedtime!
When we got back in town, Griff got to spend some fun time at the lake house with Poppa and Gigi, and was spoiled again with treats, Easter toys/books, and lovin' from his grandparents. What a blessed little boy!
Lots of great family time, a lovely church service, delicious food, and beautiful spring weather. What a fabulous way to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Savior!
