Before leaving on our trip, Jack told me he was looking forward to being at Gran’s house because there they always got up early. We arrived Saturday evening and planned to go to church the following morning. Sunday morning we got up, ate breakfast, I showered and dressed, the boys dressed, and we were in the middle of dying Easter eggs for our belated Easter celebration later that day when my alarm set in time to get up and get ready for church went off thus proving Jack’s statement true.
At church we visited with old friends. The boys were especially excited about the announcement of cake afterwards to celebrate the baptisms that took place at the Easter vigil the weekend before. The twins, remembering how often they were refused cake and other goodies due to their eggs allergy quickly exclaimed, “We can eat the cake this time!” After the cake was finished we headed to Gran and Pap’s house for a day filled with activity.
Pap planned a very special surprise for the weekend and it was waiting for us when we arrived: a dragon bounce house. After lunch the boys and their cousins went out to jump. Gran and Pap even joined them for a time. Once they were hot and red we took a break for opening Easter baskets and the Easter egg hunt. Pap helped Sebastian with his candy offering his M&Ms with his hand open. Instructing Sebastian to take only one at a time, he proceeded to pick up one, put it in his mouth, and repeat the process without pause until the hand was empty and the mouth full. Once every one had eaten candy we went back out to jump some more. Mrs. Mathis came for a visit and brought coloring pages and markers which provided a much-needed break from all the jumping before going back for more.
The full day came to an end with a very tired and over-stimulated Sebastian falling asleep on Gran. I think that might have been Gran’s favorite part of our visit.
