Happy Easter

He is risen! He is risen, indeed!

David borrowed the wheelchair again and I met Janice, Kyleigh and Angela at the church for the Easter service. The Easter service is held outdoors in the parking lot and as we sing the first song a decorated cross rises from behind the stage. Kyleigh was quite impressed and kept saying "look, grandma; look, nonni". As per usual though, she didn't want to sit still so she and Angela did some wandering and discovered that the nursery was open, so Kyleigh was quite happy to stay there for the rest of the service.

After the service, we went to the Easter egg hunt on the preschool playground. Kyleigh immediately let go of Angela's hand, ducked under the caution tape and headed for... No, not the eggs scattered on the ground. She ignored them and headed straight for the playground equipment. She did get her share of eggs though at the appropriate time and also spent some time playing on the playground. We were going to visit the petting zoo also, but Janice wasn't sure she could handle the wheelchair on the uneven ground and grass so we went home instead. Kyleigh rode on my lap the whole way while she investigated the contents of the eggs, but somehow lost a shoe while crossing the street.

Easter dinner was at Janice's, but Angela did all the cooking (except the eggs and the dessert). All of the family in the area attended and I think everyone had a great time. There was playdough, bouncy balls, bubbles, and coloring eggs to keep the "kids" busy as well as a lunch of ham, deviled eggs, broccoli casserole, asparagus, salad and rolls, as well as angel food cake with strawberries and blueberries for desert.

There was also an earthquake. It was originally gauged at 6.9 in Mexicali, but was later upgraded to 7.2. It was a long roller and you could see the TV and pictures swaying.

I have some pictures, but David needs to fix my uploading program so I'll try to add them later.
