2013 Easter Events/Traditions


Our family loves to celebrate Easter. We always pack up the kids and head over to my little brothers house for a late breakfast and a time of Easter-egg-stravganza with the kiddos. It's a beautiful time to have my kids, my nephews, some of their cousins and family all together in one place celebrating our risen Saviour. We normally find some sort of "Jesus" flick to watch, normally in cartoon form, eat a quick breakfast and then watch the kids go crazy over egg hunting. If you find yourself looking for something to do this Easter here are a few local ideas that may appeal to you. Hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter!
