Easter Weekend

For Easter this year, we drove down to Fresno, California to visit some of Chris's extended family who had not gotten to meet William yet. It was a three and half hour drive making it William's longest car ride yet . . . and he let us know exactly what he thought of that on the way there and back!

Our usual accommodations were booked up (Pat & Mike had their family staying with them) so we stayed with Joyce and Bryce at their friend's home who was out of town. When we drove through the gated entry, I think my jaw dropped at beauty of the homes. And when I saw the "backyard" of where we were staying, well, I just about fell over. I felt like I was on some resort vacation. Even if I only got to enjoy the view for a few hours - and only 2 minutes by myself - I felt refreshed. It's interesting how a place can bring about a specific feeling of calm and peace.

We rarely get to be outside in short-sleeves! 

Everyone got together for dinner on Saturday and a late Easter lunch on Sunday. We haven't seen these relatives in two years so although it was a quick weekend trip, it was much needed. We also met our cousin's daughter who is just two months younger than William!

While we failed to get a whole family photo, we did snap a few of Willam's first Easter.

We hope you all had a blessed Resurrection Day!
