Easter Sunday at church

Our church serves a delicious breakfast on Easter morning:
With plenty of tasty desserts, too:

 And some had made easter baskets for all the kiddos and set out an egg hunt, so Coop came home with even more sugar!!
The other interesting thing:  Westboro Baptist (the late-Fred Phelps' church in Topeka) picketed several churches in Baldwin City on Easter morning.  They were across the street from our church for about 30 minutes that morning.  Apparently, "God hates Easter" and "Your Pastors are Whores."  Who knew.

Easter party: other entertainment

In addition to the egg hunt, kiddos played in the house with musical instruments, crafts, and toys:

And I fed them all pizza and fruit and veggies (to counter all the sugar!):

Easter party: the hunt

Mom and some of the other adults help spread the eggs out over our lawn.

It took a while for the kids to get all of them (I said they couldn't stop until they were all picked up!).  And then we convened on the deck to sort out the loot!

 Next year, not so much candy in all the eggs.  More coins or stickers or something.  Or more empty ones, which Coop announced were filled with "invisible powder."  Yes, more of that!
