We weren't with the kids for their respective Easter Egg hunts, but I'm saving the pics given to me.
This was the beautiful cross at Amy and Jason's church. Everyone brings flowers to place upon it. I think that is a lovely idea and had not seen it before but apparently, it is something many churches do.
Amy and Jack
Jason had to work on Saturday and Easter Sunday so he isn't in the photos. That is one of the drawbacks in the life of a firefighter. Their schedules go regardless of holidays.
Brady and Noah were with their cousins for Easter. I kind of edited the photos to spotlight them, but I see that there was no way to edit them all out. Tate (the kid with the Easter basket on his head) had to remain! Lol! Funny kids. They do have a great group of cousins who all live nearby. Their Grandma there is blessed to have all her little chickens live so close.
Below is a photo of a new car dealership on the tollway we travel frequently ... uh, more like every day! As we have watched so many buildings going up, this one caught our interest as they built it and we guessed what it would be. We wondered about whether cars would be displayed in this tower and, sure enough, there they are. My pic is crooked because I was driving as I held the phone up running the video. It somewhat resembles the Leaning Tower of Pisa. It is lit up at night, but I don't dare try to take a picture of it then.
As we see the changes happening so quickly before our eyes, the countryside is changing. It makes me sad to see the landscape change and the animals are being run off the land for hotels, shopping and restaurants. Below is a picture of fields where there used to be mesquite trees everywhere. They have been bulldozed down and afterward, we saw several mounds. It dawned on me (duh) one day that the trees had been turned into mulch.
One tree left.
The above is from a Facebook page I follow ... PeacefulMomentsForWomen. Her pics are always so sweet and so are the thoughts she shares.
We will be celebrating Jack's 6th birthday this Saturday. So hard to believe. Don't you dare blink because they go from this:
Happy Birthday to you, Jack. We love you!
Oh yes! And we love your Mommy and Daddy
who just happen to celebrate their anniversary on your birthday!
