Our Pascha service starts at 10:30 pm. It's crazy to be getting ready for church at bedtime.
George was asleep in the van on the way to church and came right in, laid down and went to sleep.
My mom and Bill joined us for Pascha. It was REALLY fun!!
Tuba was all excited!!
My sweet girl was not so tired. I tried and tried to get her to lay down and sleep. Nope. She slept about 20 min. and then woke up. By the time we went downstairs to celebrate and break the fast she was a wreck. TIRED!! She snapped at me...I WANT TO GO HOME!!
We pack lots of yummy treats! All our perishables were in the cooler staying chilled.
This year we came home earlier than we ever have. We rolled into our driveway about 3:30. Ugh. Very tired!!
And the next day is the Carnival!! The Pascha Feast and Carnival is Sunday....after we try to sleep in and rest. Really it goes more like drag ourselves out of bed and wonder WHY the children wake up so early, make a yummy breakfast, and then rush around getting food ready for the feast and packing the car full of carnival items.
The feast day is all about fun...I call it...Let Your Hair Down Day. The kids know they can wear what they want, eat what they want and just play and have fun.
I was having too much fun at the carnival and didn't take many photos! I did snap this cute one of all the little kids at the egg hunt. The kids were running all over the park with their baskets and people kept driving by and looking at us so strange. We realized it was a week past Western Easter and they must have thought we were nuts! Ha!
The kids jumped all day in the bouncy house. A great way to let off steam.
After the Carnival we clean up and headed home about 7:00 pm. We were bone tired, hiney dragging tired, exhausted!!
And...hungry!!!! We took the kids out for burgers. You can see from the photos that non-stop church services, plus lack of sleep, plus too much bouncy house and sugar creates some wild kids.
Or should I say....Wild Sis!!
And a Crazy Mom!!
Whew!!! What a week!!
Christ Is Risen!! Indeed He Is Risen!!
