We started off with egg dying on Saturday. Saturday night we went to the Easter Vigil Mass. Pete and I have done this Mass alone, but never with the kids. It starts at 8pm and lasts over 2 hours! It is a beautiful service though, and I have been wanting to make this a family tradition, allowing us to skip the super crowded Easter morning Mass.
This is what the younger two looked like in the first 30 min! Yep, sound asleep. It looks like no one else was there because this is when the parish all went to the baptismal font. Zachary served as altar server for the Mass and Joey hung in there without complaining at all. Over all, a success!
Easter Sunday is always spent at my mother-in-law's house. Brunch, Easter egg hunts and swimming always make for a fantastic day.

After the little kid hunt was tons of swimming. We couldn't have asked for more fabulous weather!
