How cool are my kids?
I was going to say that it’s been a busy few weeks but I think that’s just our life. And it’s a good life, so I’m definitely not complaining.
Easter felt full and busy after the quiet celebrations of the last two years. Easter is really the central celebration of our Christian faith and this year we were able to meet with others again. We visited an Anglican Church in the next community for Good Friday service and Easter Sunday. On the Friday, after church, we explored a new hike and found a beautiful spot for a picnic.
Pearl and Rose’s favourite Easter tradition is easily our family backyard hunt. So we had it first thing in the morning on Sunday because we went straight from church to our friends for lunch and…another Easter hunt!
The following weekend we went into Vancouver to celebrate my dad’s 70th birthday and my brother’s 40th. And to have a third Easter hunt with the big cousins!
With some free time on Saturday, my dad suggested taking the girls to ride the SkyTrain. Such a simple activity but such fun for our small town kids!
Other than our weekend adventures, life goes on. Library visits, swim lessons, dinners with friends, navigating protocol around childhood head colds. You know, life in 2022.
