Today we participated in EasterFest 2017 in San Angelo. This is an annual event hosted by the Life Church, a large local Christian church. The event offered Easter egg hunts, inflatable bounce houses, a mobile rock-climbing wall, and as many free hotdogs as you could eat. They also had about a dozen donated bicycles that were given away to participants via a free drawing. The kids enjoyed the egg hunts, bounce houses, and hot dogs. We got pictures of the kids with the Chick-fil-A cows and we were given 16 gift cards for free Chick-fil-A food! Guess what our go-to restaurant will be for a while 🙂 They ran out of time to climb the mobile rock wall, but I think it was still well worth the time spent at the event. The day was made a little more enjoyable since Heather’s mom, sister, and nephew were in attendance as well. They flew in from Ohio a few days ago and will be staying with us for the next week.
Tomorrow we plan to dye hard-boiled eggs before the family heads to church to focus on the real reason for Easter, the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Happy Easter everyone!
