Happy Easter 2008

I hope everyone had a nice Easter weekend. We had a nice time. We went to church with friends and family. It was nice because we just watched the service from closed circuit in the church's coffee house which looks like a Coffee Bean or a Starbuck's, but called the Cana Cafe. It's funny because their slogan is "Never Luke Warm, Verse 3:16" and it says it on all the cups. We just noticed it for the first time yesterday. They have a train table in the cafe so it makes it easy to take the little ones. We can enjoy our coffee during the service. What a great idea!! So accessible to families with little ones who get so little time to relax. It's nice to listen to the music and socialize during the first 30-45min, then listen to the sermon for the last half. Gotta love those churches who are really up to date! It's a sign of the times. Make your religious services fit in with your typical lifestyle and more people will come. It's fantastic!! They even podcast and stream the service!! Too funny, here is their website. We just started going there about 6 weeks ago. I was raised catholic, but it's a nice change. They are really accommodating to the families with children with special needs. They have a care center for children and young adults. It's more geared toward the moderate to severe, but it's nice that it's offered. I am sure that may be the only break some of the parents get from caring for their SN children, so it's nice.

Here are some pics from earlier in the day, I will upload the egg hunt pics later tonight. Click on the pic to take you to the Flickr Photo Set. They are from my real camera, so I haven't off loaded them. These pics were just the ones off my iPhone.

Whoops! Sorry, I forgot to hyperlink the word "website". The link was there, there was just nothing to click on :) I fixed it.

I could use a coffee right now. Ethan fell asleep at 5:30pm and now he is wide awake and ready for the day. I'm stuck staying up with him until he decides it's time to go back to bed. I thought he would sleep through since he is sick, but I guess he feels better. I'm not going to be well tomorrow if I don't go to bed soon ;)
