We looked and we hunted...on line.
Just the perfect house for everyone for an Easter getaway.
The grands are always excited to have their own beds.
Of course, one has been busy organizing for this event
bringing along all those special Easter treats.
The boys painted their eggs with Auntie Mikki.
Food was devoured and enjoyed by all.
Reading of the scriptures reminded us all that
"He is Risen"
The following day the youngest was first in the SUV,
while all the gear was loaded...he eagerly waited to hit the slopes.
What better place to be than skiing at Mount Baker.
Another first for this family...close to home,
sunny skies, great company and we all love the sport.
I can't help but sing praise songs when I'm riding up the chair.
The mountains, the natural beauty that surrounds us.
"The skies proclaim the work of his hands."
And at the end of the day...we needed one last run, and one last photo op.
Meanwhile, he waited patiently as he was asked to close his eyes,
while the Easter eggs were being hidden outside.
Young and old loved the traditional Easter Egg hunt out in the wooded forest.
This year we asked each adult to bring their favorite treat,
plus enough for all the other baskets.
This added some new dimensions that kept us all intrigued.
One adult enjoyed eating a whole can of sweetened condensed milk.
That was his treat....I think I will use mine for baking.
Last but not least, we met another young couple,
enthusiastic about skiing.
It's always fun to bump into your friends' kids, Heidi & Tim.
We are never to old to learn to ski, Judy.
What more than to close off the day sitting outside around a campfire.
And we'll continue to find room for one more.
And this was Easter, March 30, 2013.
