Hey, y'all! TGIF! I know that I don't usually end the week with a Family Update post, but it's been a super busy week assignment-wise. So, if you don't mind, that's what I'm going to do today ;). Last Friday, my big kiddo and I went on a little, mother-son date. He wanted to go to the Nelson-Atkins Museum to see a few of the areas that we hadn't yet made it to. He had it all planned out and even brought his map, from a previous visit, along to lead the way. It was the cutest thing EVER!
I loved this painting to bits! There's just something about it that draws me right in.
This is a stunning painting of Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives. It was so fitting to view it the exact day we remember the crucifixion of our Lord and Savior, Good Friday.
We both were totally in awe of these Chinese cricket cages and eating dishes. What an amazing tradition!
Ezekiel was so excited over this night in shining armor...
and here's a few more gorgeous bits and pieces, just because.
And I just had to throw in this new, modern art installation! It's so mesmerizing!
It was such a beautiful night. We went on a little walk in the gardens, too.
Then, we were off to The Cheesecake Factory for dessert on the patio. Ezekiel picked out a slice of Mango Key Lime Cheesecake...
and I enjoyed this delicious Kahlua Cocoa Coffee Cheesecake.
And, of course, we had to snap a picture by one of The Plaza's traditional, Easter, Peter Rabbits.
Then, on Sunday, we were off to my Mom and Dad's church for their Easter services. There was a little, egg hunt, for the kiddos, after.
We snapped a bunch of family pics before lunch. My sisters and their families were there. So, we got a picture of the three of us together, too, and of course, another cousin pic. Gosh, they grow up so fast!
It was an absolutely beautiful day, so the kids played outside all afternoon. LOVE that there's so much room for them to run and play at Grandma and Grandpa's. They also raked in one HUGE stash of candy in a big, egg hunt all over their property.
Finally, I just had to throw in this picture I took earlier this week of my beautiful girl, enjoying the bunny her Daddy and I gave her in her Easter basket. She also got an Easter book (Surprise ;)!) and a watercolor book. Her brother got a bunny, too, along with his new, favorite movie, Rise of the Guardians.
That brings us to today. I've scheduled this post, because my hubby and I are away at a homeschool conference, and my kiddos are enjoying another day with their Grandma. But I'll be back next week with lots more creations to share ;). Have a blessed weekend, y'all!
