redneck egg hunt

All the kids didn't have Easter baskets for the egg hunt so we had to use plastic sacks. I said well this is such a redneck egg hunt. Then we hid the eggs twice. Kaitlyn and Aaliyah thought they were too good for the egg hunt the first time but played along the second time.

Easter at Luke's

We left Nashville a little after 10 am and drove to Luke's house. We did lots of activities this day so it will take several posts to get it all on the blog. It was such a pretty day so we stayed outside most of the day. These are just some random shots of the day.

everybody say popscicle!

Family picture

After worship service on Sunday, Penny takes family photos. I am sure the one she took with her camera is better but here is the one taken with my camera.

herding cats

Trying to get a decent picture of my two kids together is like herding cats!

And this is the best I got!

On Friday night, she got called to the stage for being a finalist in photography.

She was a finalist in song leading

Her scrapbook won 3rd place for 5-6th grade division.

L2L- Kyle

We spent the weekend in Nashville at the Opryland hotel for the annual Lads to Leaders convention. This is our 4th year to be involved with this program.

Here are the things Kyle did over the weekend:

boys being silly in the hospitality room

Bible reading

Kyle and his drawing

K-2 participants from Bartlett Woods

Kyle also participated in song leading but John went with him and I went with Kaitlyn because they were at the same time. I gave him my camera but the guy said not to use flash photography so John didn't take a picture. ARRRRRGGHH!
