We had a lovely day yesterday. We were up bright and early for 7am mass because 3 of the kids were scheduled to serve. It was actually very nice The early mass is about the only one that we can all go to and know that the little ones can make it thru without too much trouble. There is no singing, it's usually a small number of people and even for Easter Sunday the crowd was pretty light. Kenzie stayed afterwards to practice and then sing with the choir at 9am mass. She said it was packed! Pews were filled, people lined the walls and then spilled out into the vestibule.
Alex was able to get someone to cover his afternoon shift at work so he was able to go with us when we headed to my in-laws mid morning. I think my parents were a little disappointed, though, because if he'd had to work, he was going to go there for brunch and then head in.
We had lots of great food, which of course I got no pictures of, but everyone had plenty to eat. Afterward, we trouped outside for an egg hunt. We had to brave the soggy squishy muddy ground...amazing how saturated the ground it...and we got a ton more rain last night. The kids all had a great time and came up with lots a goodies in their eggs.
