Spring time in Fairfax, Va is gorgeous! The kids thouroughly enjoyed the Easter festivities this year. The Easter bunny left footprints that lead to bountiful baskets filled with Emily and Justins' favorite things; mommies zuchinni muffins, cookies sent by grandma, easter craft kits, movies and books... oh my. We indulged in breakfast at the local pancake house and then set off for an Easter egg hunt at Burke Lake Park. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful setting. The kids raced down a lake side trail lined in chocolate filled eggs, Justin following the footsteps of his big sister of course. I was happy to see that Emily was running so fast that she missed some eggs here and there for her brother to pick up. There was one that she found and said "look Justin, there's one!" leaving it for him to collect. So sweet. Of course there was also an incident where they went for the same egg and Emily made sure to come out on top, no doubt, lol. We ended our day at bedtime with an Easter book teaching the story of the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the eternal life he gives. Happy Easter everyone. Our friends and families are in our hearts an minds, we send our love to you all.
