Easter Weekend With Two of Our Girls

Yesterday, I was happy to get a phone call from Aubrey, our six year old granddaughter. She was all excited to tells us, that she and her mama are coming to visit, over the weekend. Our daughter, Mari Lynn has two grandchildren she's gonna babysit for, on Saturday and Sunday. I believe their mommy has to work both days, so Mari Lynn is helping out for a couple days. This also gives her the privilege to pose as the Easter Bunny and fill the baskets for the little ones to wake up to, on Easter morning. Does that ever bring back some fond memories! I loved that part of parenting, seeing the excitement on my two children's faces

Actually, I enjoyed Easter more than I did Christmas, when my kids were little.

You know, I am not a father, then I can not understand what it means to have children / grandchildren. But from those I knew who became parents first, and grandparents later, they expressed their immense happiness!

@alberello75 You never give yourself credit, for being a strong person or a good influence for other around you!

@Tina30219 I always loved doing things like that, for my kids! My parents always made a fun time out of Easter morning. The thing I looked forward to most, we had two weeks off from school

@kobesbuddy My oldest daughter mentioned earlier today that she really loves Easter. I thought she'd like Christmas more, but she likes the Easter weather better.

@spiderdust I love Easter season, it's the beginning of buds on the trees, new life, warmer weather, spring flowers, it's an uplifting time, for me.

In the country where I was born there was not the tradition of the Easter Bunny and eggs hunting.

@kobesbuddy The Holy Friday Procession had to be stopped due to the torrential rain. It is a very old tradition here, it's the first time it has to be stopped.

I loved that part of parenting too. I loved hiding eggs in the backyard. So much fun to watch the hunt. Creating Easter Baskets was fun too.

My Mom&Dad loved having an Easter egg hunt, in their front yard. As the kids found these eggs, my Father would be hiding the exact same eggs, in the back yard! LOL

I remember how much fun it was on Easter morning to see our 2 sons look for the Easter chocolates.
