I love spending time with our kids and grandkids. But the cold, hard fact is, it takes 5 1/2-6 hours to get here. So on any given weekend that we are heading up here, I run home and pick up Marlene. We jump in the car and drive north until we arrive. Typically it is 12:30 our time, 1:30 here. That may not sound bad, but when your day started early and after you’ve worked a full day, we are both ready to get in and off the road.
Scott made a great breakfast and Christin baked delicious muffins, what a way to start the day! We loaded into the van and drove to a small church that was hosting the egg hunt. Scott ran into a man there that he knew as a young man. He went to this church with one of his friends and played in a band with this guy’s son-in-law, how cool is that? To meet up with someone from your past and let them know that you are still walking with the Lord and wouldn’t have it any other way.
Lunchtime was Skyline with Scott. Need I say more? I think not, other than it was great as usual. After that Scott and I headed over to Jacob’s Well Fellowship so I could do some pictures for them to use on their site and for promotion. They came out great and I’ll post some of those soon.
The sun was out and it was in the mid 50′s so we spent time with the kids walking and pushing them on their toys. Here they are on their little “Indian” motorcycle.
Tomorrow is Easter Sunday and we will celebrate the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ with this church family here. Then we’ll have lunch and head back home. We have a few days of work planned here with Sis and Scott. Our assignment is to get the house ready for the arrival of the next Yuppa! It will be a labor of love. (no pun intended) Of course it will be fun watching the kids open their Easter goodies from their parents and us.
Happy Easter everyone!
