Easter Eggstravaganza

My friend Rachael told me about Macaroni Kid, an awesome e-newsletter for moms that has fun craft ideas for kids as well as a schedule of tons of fun kids stuff going on in the twin cities each week.  One thing that caught our eye for this weekend was the Easter Eggstravaganza at a local church.  We enjoyed an Easter Egg hunt, made an Easter lilly out of Summer's handprint, and walked through stations that told the Easter story. 

We are trying to be really intentional this year about talking about the real reason for Easter with Summer---(This week we have read the story multiple times in various forms, talked through her Resurrection Eggs, went to our church's family night Journey to the Cross, etc).  I like it, because the more intentional I am with Summer, the more I think about the reason we are celebrating Easter as well. It is so easy to get caught up in the business of life and planning for Easter that I don't spend enough time mediating on the sacrifice Christ made for us on the cross.  I hope to change that now that I have little eyes watching me :-).  Anyway, here are a few pictures Paul took from our Saturday at the Easter Eggstravaganza....

Ready to look for eggs with the ages 1-3 group!
