They are in their thirties.  They are parents to four children, including a young baby, and yet they bravely took on our family Easter celebration.
Their hospitality and relaxed spirits immediately put everyone at ease.
There were tables and people everywhere, and all had a memorable time together.  I thought I would share a few of the pictures I took, with you.

Two of my neices created these unique and colorful eggs, using string and balloons.  One of my neices, the Pinterest Queen, helped the hostess have the courage to attempt some of the fun projects that she finds there (on Pinterest).  I thought this bowl of "eggs" looked so pretty the way she  arranged them with stuffed animals and painted eggs, for the children's table.

The weather was cool, quite windy and overcast, causing the bright yellow tablescapes to brighten everything.

My oldest granddaughter comforts my the youngest granddaughter.  I love seeing that.

Can you believe how handsome the young men are at this table?  At the far end are the host and hostess of the celebration.

My sister-in-law in the middle and her two daughters.  Lots of work to be done, and these three are always there to help out. We each brought food and that made the job a bit easier for the hostess.

Some handsome young guys too!

The weather coorperated long enough to host an annual egg hunt.

Oh the joy of opening and inspecting the finds of the day.

Beauty, joy, fun, and fellowship filled the few hours of our time together.

Thanks for stopping by this evening.

It blesses me to see how fully your family enjoys Easter. So many people don't do much on that day, much less gather family for such a classy meal.

I love seeing the little ones all dolled up; and the older comforting the other. Sweet.

Thanks for sharing your 'joyous' family celebration with us. It looks like we all did much the same thing at Easter...gathered the family, hunted for eggs, and sat around 'laden' tables. What fun...all around! And 'hats off' to the young couple who hosted your gathering!

I love seeing your family photo's Judy, thank you for sharing them. It looks like you had a great day and your nieces did a fantastic job. Pinterest is a brilliant site, I know my daughters get lots of ideas from it and so do I when I find time to look :)
