Easter 2011

The past few weeks have been busy. The kids have had 3 weeks off school. It has been a great time but life can become very busy as we try to participate in all the things that are happening around us. During the Easter weekend we tried to take time out to do things as a family that would help us remember what Easter is really about.

Good Friday, we went on Ealings walk of witness where we walked through the main Ealing area collecting more church groups as we went along and arrived at the final church for an outdoor service. it was great as this year the weather was beautiful allowing us to really stop and enjoy the event. After having a quick lunch at home we headed up to Primrose Hill to meet up with some friends who had carried a cross that Aaron had built through this area of the city. It was interesting to watch as they approached the hill dragging this cross in what turned out to be a very hot day. I was shocked to watch how things unfold. As they walked up the hill carrying the cross people were actually mocking them, one even had the nerve to yell "Now, thats a buzz kill". We did proceed to have two services one at the top of the hill and one at the bottom, it was great. The guys running the event did an amazing job at maintaining control of the situation during the various comments, laughter and mean comments.

Easter Sunday came in with a sunrise service on Primrose Hill, followed by a great Iranian breakfast. unfortunately due to the long day ahead Aaron had to go to this one on his own as it was just too early in the morning to pull the kiddies out and expect them to still make it through the day.

We hope your Easter was wonderful and throughout all the busyness you were able to take time out to remember the true events that happened at the very first Easter.

A few weeks ago we celebrated Randy & Margie's 50th wedding anniversary.

The pic above shows all six of their kids with all six of their spouses and their 24 grandchildren.  Margie's sister Dail is also in the picture, she was the 'surprise' for the event as she flew over for the week from Wisconsin.

The First Snow

The first snow came this weekend and the kids were pretty excited.  Waking up on a Sunday morning to a blanket of white is idealistic for your first winter.  
We will have a lot of snow this summer and the kids will enjoy it but we are sure as the winter goes on there will be more snow than even children can be excited for so today....  we are enjoying it!!
