LDS Church Historical Site in Harmony, PA.

On Monday, the Breadys stopped in Harmony PA at the
 Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints
 Priesthood Restoration site on their way home.

Easter Day

We said our sad goodbyes to Ashley and the kids Saturday afternoon.  On Sunday we hunted down our Easter baskets in the morning before we enjoyed a beautiful Easter program at church.  Everyone came over for lunch and the afternoon together before Dave's family left for Philly.  Sunshine, kids and grandkids at the lake.  Doesn't get much better than that!

Cousins: Victoria, Jude and Lydia in their Easter best.
Grandpa photo bombed this pic of the Clay girls!

Easter Fun

Easter at the Lake.  Celebrating the Resurrection of our Savior and having fun with the kids.
This year the Nesbitts, Carringtons, Breadys and Clays were all with us for Easter.
Here you see Lydia, Jude, Parker, Zoey, Victoria, Dallas and Henry coloring hard boiled eggs.

 Charlie thought it was great fun to dip eggs..........as did



 The girl cousins all created Easter bunnie faces.  These four love to do crafts

After a family breakfast they were all ready for their Easter Egg Hunt...
Charlie, Levi, Jude, Connor, Parker, Henry, Zoey, Victoria, Dallas and Lydia.

They could each find 27 eggs and we hid them pretty good all around the house, down in the playset area, up thru the woods and into the orchard.

 We missed the Leonards this Easter, but they will be here this summer and we can do another hunt with them.  We are truly blessed with this wonderful family!!!

Just having fun in Charleston, West Virginia

The Clay Clan arrived one car at a time in Charleston, West Virginia on Friday night the 5th of February.  Chris and Katelin came to see us and stayed for a couple of hours.  It was so nice getting acquainted with Katelin and to be reunited with Chris.  Some of us hurried to change and jumped in the pool after they left and most of us swam the next morning even before breakfast!  Some swam after breakfast again and we swam after the reception, too!  It was nice to be on the same floor of the hotel together and we had so much fun as a family playing cards, eating pizza and just being together for the first time since Christmas.

Ashley, Dallas and Amy.  
Amy flew into Washington, DC where Hank picked her up after work and she stayed the night in VA with them and then they all drove to W. VA. together.  Amy had never been to Ashley and Hank's new home so it was a treat for her.

 Connor was our only teenager and the kids all love him and wanted to be with him.

Lydia just wanted her Grandpa!

The cousins had fun together.

We ate a wonderful buffet breakfast Saturday and Sunday morning at the hotel.  Lydia walked around with this napkin on her head and was so cute!

We all got in on the action in the pool when Grandpa started a water train.
