Sunrises, Easter, and Alpacas

How was your Sunday?  We hope you had an Easter full of praise for Jesus' life and sacrifice!

We went to a sunrise service at the Red Rocks Amphitheater which was gorgeous...and early!  We left the house at 4:59 am--dang.  The view was incredible and there must have been 10,000 people there.  It was a neat service and the speaker shared God's grace with such articulation and meaning.

The amphitheater is gorgeous!  The rocks are so monstrous and beautiful

After church we all took a (much needed) nap and then had brunch at our house.  Veggie egg casserole, banana bread, "bunny" bread (see below), fruit salad and sausage were on the menu.  Delicious!

And my rock star mom made us all Easter baskets.  Isn't that too fun?  She really blesses us.  We got pretty coffee mugs, dark chocolate, almonds, and organic gummies as well as socks, hand towels, and other random goodies.

 Oh and we saw alpacas in the afternoon--ha!  Our neighbor owns a few so we got to say hi.

We dropped off Kyle and Tiffany to the airport and jetted down for an Easter dinner with the Deckers.  It was so delicious and a gift to get to see both of our families for special celebrations.  Today was abundantly full!  A real celebration of Jesus, life, and undeserved grace.

Enjoy your week and this spring-y, refreshing weather :)

Decker family picture!

 Ryder looked like a stud per usual (Mom, I took this picture of his little man outfit for you) and Rilyn had a very adventurous egg hunt!

I believe she had her 19th piece of candy in her mouth here--ha!  She knows how to work the system

    1. Thank you Beth! I love it too. It's modest and light, perfect for Spring. My mom bought it for me as a gift. It's from the Gap (who is a fairly commendable company that uses fair trade and practices responsible business practices).
