Weekend/Easter Fun!

Have to mention that Cameron and Matt had the chance to go to the Twins game over the weekend to watch Cameron's buddy Kevin Slowey pitch. The guys had a blast at the game while Emmy and I had a little girl time around our house and a few quick errands. I believe this will be a trend in the future as the kids get older...guy outings and gal outings! Check out Matt's blog to see some of the great pictures he got from the here

I know that my Redeemer lives;
What comfort this sweet sentence gives!
He lives, He lives, who once was dead;
He lives, my ever living Head.
- Samuel Medley

These are the words of one of my favorite Easter hymns. This is what Easter is really all about. The triumph of our risen Savior!! Easter 2010....what a beautiful, sunny, warm and wonderful day! I must say it was a bit busy but we had a great day with church friends and family.

Our morning at True North included Easter breakfast, an Easter egg hunt, and a joyful worship service with lots of help from the kids of our church. The preschoolers (Cameron's class) sang "Jesus is the Lamb of God" all wearing lamb ears that they made in class. Cameron is never too shy to sing when he is around people he knows but when put in front of a crowd, he freezes! It took some coaxing and bribing but he finally got up in front of everyone. He didn't sing much but instead was the kid that was picking his nose! We were so proud!! :)We headed to the farm to have Easter dinner with the family. It was a full house with my dad's siblings and cousins. Cameron, Emmy, Wyatt and Peyton were all somewhat matching in their Easter outfits so it was fun to grab some pictures of them. They were all pretty happy as they had their fill of chocolate bunnies, jelly beans and their absolute favorite PEZ!! G'ma Deb and G'pa Don spoiled the grandkids again and it was just like Christmas!! Here are a few pictures of the Schliep grandkids...

Next we headed to Rochester to hang with Matt's family. What fun it is with all of these little ones in the gets better and better! We played outside blowing bubbles, sliding and riding around in g'ma Carol's cars. We got a little concerned when we couldn't find all of the Easter eggs that were hidden in the house but before we all left last night they were all found again. Here are a few pictures from our time with the Addington cousins. You can see that by the time we were taking the pictures they were running a little low on smiles and energy!
