Palm Sunday

There were big things happening at our church today.  Most importantly, it is Palm Sunday and the beginning of Holy Week.  To celebrate Jesus' entrance into Jerusalem the children processed into worship waving palm branches and singing.  I, of course, have no pictures of this because I had to help.  I could recreate it though because I have four huge containers of palm branches on our porch...lucky me!

After church there were games, a petting zoo, and an egg hunt...very holy activities!  Just a few fun activities for the families to begin Holy Week.  Samuel was afraid of the animals and it took him forever to work up the courage to hold an animal.  It was funny to watch him inside the petting area.  Elena, though, loved the animals and she would have stayed all day I think.

Samuel and Elena collected a few too many eggs.  Samuel even had them in his pockets.  Emma and Jonah found their fair share as well.  I now have a huge box of plastic eggs, but the good thing is I don't have to buy any for our egg hunt.

Elena won her age group as Drew said during the sack race.  She did a really good job...no falls and all smiles!  She is totally airborne in this picture!

And, as always, I had to have family pictures.  Maybe someday my boys will keep their shirts tuck in, but I don't see that happening anytime soon.
