Since my parents were headed back to Illinois before Easter, we had to celebrate a few weeks early. This is the second Easter we have been able to celebrate at their house, which includes a huge Easter egg hunt for the kiddos in their backyard. My parents had placed toy frogs and snakes and even some quarters in the plastic eggs that they were searching for. There's just something about the excitement that little kids have about the simple things (like egg hunts) that warms your heart. My mom made a delicious lunch of course, and we spent the afternoon playing board games (surprise, surprise). I love having family nearby, and wouldn't want it any other way. Happy Easter!
