"In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee:‘The Son of Man must be delivered over to the hands of sinners, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ” Then they remembered his words." Luke 24:5-8
We spent Easter weekend with Hidee and Joe Pa in Arkansas. We left Thursday night.
Friday, we went to eat lunch with Meemaw and Papaw. Miles at a lot of cheese dip. I think it was one of the first times he ate it, because he dipped his cheese quesadilla in the dip along with some chips and eventually his fingers. Matt and I put a stop to that, though.
That afternoon we went to Hidee's school so that Miles could ride on the school bus that my Papaw drives. Miles loves buses....HOWEVER....he did not like this bus. He was grabbing onto Hidee and didn't want to get on the bus. So, we didn't ride the bus this time. Maybe next time?
That night, we grilled out burgers at Hidee and Joe Pa's house and just relaxed. The next day we dyed Easter eggs. Miles was way more into it this year compared to last year.
That evening, Hidee and Joe Pa took Miles to the park to play while Matt and I went to Memphis. It was his high school friend and college roommate Alex McCulloch's 30th birthday party. It was held at Ernestine and Hazels in downtown Memphis. We had a great time!
Magen, Joanie, me and Rachel
Love getting to see these beautiful, sweet ladies! Wish we could see each other besides when our husbands get together!! (thanks to Magen for the pictures)
The next day, Easter Sunday, we got up, got dressed, and headed to Hidee and Joe Pa's church--First United Methodist in West Memphis.
Doesn't he look dapper in his bow tie?
After pictures and church, Miles got to open his Easter basket.
The Easter bunny brought him some candy, cars, a Mickey fire truck, a bubble fan, some clothes, and some books.
Next, up was hiding and hunting eggs.
Miles enjoyed this more this year, too.
