Easter is such a great time to celebrate….the greatest day to celebrate!  We celebrate to rejoice in our risen King, to praise our Savior for conquering the grave, to thank Him for giving us the hope of restoration, and to worship a God who is alive and seated on His throne forever!

We also celebrate the Easter traditions that are a fun and exciting part of our culture, Easter egg hunts, the Easter bunny, and a meal with friends and family!

The Saturday before Easter, The Austin Stone hosted an Easter egg hunt down at Zilker park.  4,000 eggs were hidden for kids of all ages to find, and GTB was determined to win:

On Easter Sunday, we celebrated with a host of friends, mostly college students we know from the Stone.  For lunch, we decided to try a waffle bar (thanks for the idea Morgan!), and it was a definite success and do-again.

The day was complete with an Easter egg hunt.  Instead of hiding real eggs, we hid plastic eggs.  To entice the college students to play along with our games, we hid cash in seven “golden eggs.”  Clay was the big $20 winner, but two of the eggs went unfound…discovered by OTown and GTB later in the week.img_9513

GTB finally got to find his “bunny basket,” which he had been talking about constantly for two weeks.  He was not disappointed 🙂

And of  course, there was Easter egg dying to be had.  Most of the eggs were dyed by our friends while GTB was napping, but he was not to be outdone….he just redyed all of their eggs after he woke up.  The pictures do a decent job of documenting the progressive destruction of our kitchen table.

Finally, GTB, OTown, and of course, Grr (yes, Grr is dressed up in a tie) went to church at The Stone….the highlight of the day!
