Gabrielle and Joshua at our home with their Easter baskets from us.
On Good Friday, we visited my mom (Nan Nan) and then took her to dinner where Uncle PJ, Aunt Nancy and cousin Greg met us for a Good Friday meal.
On Saturday morning, we headed to the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania for the annual Easter celebration with Jim’s parent (Pop Pop and Nana) and family. Pop Pop’s annual egg hunt is unmatched. This year, each of the five grandchildren hunted for 82 eggs….82 eggs EACH! Inside each egg is a surprise. And 10 of the eggs they each receive contain a slip that says “See Pop Pop For A Prize”. The excited egg hunter then runs to Pop Pop, who is perched on his chair surrounded by bags of gifts for his grandchildren. It’s so much fun for the cherubs! And Nana makes a delicious 6-course Easter meal! Her escarole soup is out of this world!
Can you find the egg? This egg had Joshua’s name on it! He loves basketball!

On Easter morning at Pop Pop and Nana’s, our little family went to a sister church of our home church in Philly, which is just a few miles from Pop Pop and Nana’s mountain home. In Sunday School, the children made a “Lamb of God” cake, which was precious…and delicious!
