Easter Weekend 2013

Usually if it is cool and rainy on Easter I get a little whiny.  I love to be outside on this most holiest of days, but today I do not mind taking it easy inside.  We have had two VERY busy days and today we are thankful to be home and cozy. 

Friday after our full day at UVA, we spent Saturday from dawn to dark at a baseball field watching Kyle play in his first travel ball tournament with a local travel team. 

Playing so many games in one day allowed him the opportunity to play many different positions.  He got to play left field, right field, third, and second base.  He is playing on a U12 team which means that lots of the kids on the field are older and bigger than he is, but it is a great experience for him. He is spending time with several of his buddies, meeting new friends, and having fun competing. 
The first game of the day was chilly but the sun came out and warmed it up nicely for the other games. 
Between games we went and bought him a new bat.  He had been saving for one for a while from some Christmas money and we finally found one he liked.  At his first at bat with the new one he hit a nice single!

AFter getting in late last night, we all slept in a little before checking out the Easter baskets. 
Hope Madeline was thrilled with her basket that had a Doc McStuffins headband and a big book of boo boo's! 
Easter baskets
Kyle was thrilled that the easter bunny knew he like mints and sparkling waters:)
David was thrilled that the easter bunny left him some plums.  David would prefer a plum anyday to the candy that was in his basket. 

I felt like a spoiled princess this weekend.  Since the tournament was so close to my parents house we stayed with them Friday night.  Hope and David came with Pops and GG and watched one game, but for the early morning and after dark games they stayed at GG and Pop's house.  Not only had they watched the kids for us, but Mom had ironed the kids clothes for church today and she tucked a homecooked Easter meal in our car so we could enjoy it today.  We are so blessed. 
This morning we finally got ready for church (no early service for us today) and it was raining when we left for church so Easter pictures had to be inside today.    Here is our sweet three year old.  I had a hairbow picked out to match her dress, but as you can see she chose to wear the Doc McStuffin headband that was in her easter basket. 
Handsome and healthy-looking David!
Our sweet three on this resurrection morning. 
Our handsome 11 year old!

They cooperated so well for pictures that they asked to do a silly face picture so here it is!  Cute little nuts:)

Today I am reflecting on Jesus' resurrection and the song Worthy is the Lamb is stuck in my head.  It sums up this most awesome day perfectly:

Thank you for the Cross, Lord
Thank you for the price you paid
Bearing all my sin and shame
In love You came
and gave amazing grace.

Thank you for this love Lord
Thank you for the nail-pierced hands
Wash me in your cleaning flow,
Now all I know
You forgiveness and embrace

Worthy is the Lamb
Seated on the throne
Crown You now with many crowns
You reign victorious

I love that song so much and today on this Easter I am overwhelmed in the Love that was shown on the cross so many years ago for me.  Happy Easter from the Robinson Family!
