A Wonderful Family Weekend!

Saturday was a fun day with the little ones!  We met our granddaughters at our former church for an Easter Egg Hunt!  The Church of the Brethren does such a good job each year with this special event beginning with an Easter Story in their sanctuary.  Then they have a big egg hunt outside with a visit from the Easter bunny.  Back to the social hall for a fun craft making time, even decorating cupcakes.  The 4 little girls had a fun time!

Bria is getting so big! 

Katelyn got quite a "stash" at the egg hunt!

After the egg hunt, the 4 cousins enjoyed playing on the
Church playground!

Jamie helped Bria and Cali make bunny headbands
in the church fellowship hall!

More fun at the church playground!

Which way do we go on the sliding board??????

Then Ken and I kept Sam and Katelyn overnight so Lanie and Bob would have time alone to get ready for Katelyn's party and the family Easter dinner.  The girls were so good.  They even took hour naps.  

Sunday we were at Lanie's by 10 for another Easter egg hunt, the distribution of Easter baskets, a delicious meal, and then a Birthday party!  So nice to have both of our girls and their families together for the day.  Jamie's family had to leave at 3:30 for an meal with her in-laws.

Another Easter egg hunt and Lanie and Bob's for all
4 little ones!

Aunt Lanie decided to try out the bunny sunglasses courtesy
of Aunt Jamie!  She couldn't see anything!!!

Katelyn loves Mickey and Minnie Mouse, so it was the
theme of her birthday party - cake and gifts!

Ken and I bought each of the "families" a parachute for Easter!
It was fun for the girls!

The happy Hosler family!!!

Sam just learned to ride a two wheeler last weekend, so
she was eager to show us her riding skills.  Made Papa
very nervous!

Yesterday and today were very busy days getting ready for our camping trip. We leave tomorrow morning to go to Elk Neck State Park in Maryland with Fred and Doloris Martin.  Marcia and Gary Kreider will join us on Friday and we will all head back home on Sunday.  Hopefully the weather will be cooperative. Today we spent time with Lanie - Ken went with her to a large consignment sale for children's clothing and toys that will take place near Exton this Thurs through Sunday.  The amount of work that is required to bring items to this sale is incredible, but the quality of the items and the pricing is incredible too! I took Sam to Pre-School and then spent time with Katelyn till they returned. This evening we went to see Bria and Cali at their tap dance class where they were rehearsing their acts for the dance recital this Friday night. Unfortunately we will be away and will not be able to attend - that is why we went to the rehearsals.  The recital was rescheduled to this weekend instead of when we 1st returned from Florida in March.

Our camera is already packed away in Waldo so no pictures for me to post tonight.  I will add them tomorrow.

Really looking forward to a relaxing and fun camping trip with special friends.
