Resurrection Respite

Life has been a frenzy of chaos, activity, and responsibilities lately, so to be able to slow down and focus on the Resurrection, I am going to take a blog break for the rest of the weekend. I’ll be back sometime on Monday, hopefully refreshed, refocused, and renewed.

I’ll leave you with a few pictures of Ali, Ethan and AJ at the Botanical Gardens. We took them to run around and enjoy the fresh air on Wednesday. They were oddly underdressed, though, because every other kid that we saw was dressed in their smock getting their Easter pictures made.

(We even saw one poor little boy in a sweater shorts and shirt set. Sweater Shorts. I didn’t know such a thing existed.)

We tried to keep our kids out of the background of the portraits taking place, but if any of you out there discover a non-smocked toddler or two in your photos, I do sincerely apologize.





I hope that everyone has a wonderful Easter weekend!

    Great pictures! What a pretty day to go to the Botanical Gardens!

  8. I had to look up what sweater shorts were with my friend Google and I'm… frightened. My child will not be wearing that sort of thing any time soon.

  9. LOL, Mary. I didn't know that they existed either!!
