“Every parting gives a foretaste of death; every coming together again a foretaste of the resurrection.”
I hope you were able to participate in some fun Easter activity. I did. Though we haven’t dyed eggs this year-YET-the day is just beginning and it’s a glorious one and it’s on the schedule.
Yesterday I joined a group to bring a little bit of Easter fun to ourselves and our neighbors in Stackhouse Park in Westmont. It was so nice to see families outside again and enjoying our wonderful park. Thanks to Lauren Lazzari from Beginning’s, Inc. (and Stackhouse) and Ann Kelly from Young Heart Books and Toys for spearheading this event. Miss Shayna was there from the Women’s Help Center and the Miss Leah and Ms. Kristen were there from the Cambria County Library. Of course the Easter Bunny made an appearance!
We had alpaca fiber and supplies for kids to make bunny tails. They were troopers! It was freezing and the glue was pretty thick, but they persevered. It was fun to see some of my old Macaroni Kid friends again and know that they still love to craft.
A girl with great taste in Easter baskets! Thanks for the delicious Chai Latte Mill House and Co. Made by Madison of course! Even Moms enjoyed making bunny tails.
I loved Miss Shayna’s Easter bunny bags filled with positivity. We all need that.
I wasn’t able to get around to the other stations but heard from the parents again and again how much they enjoyed just being outside and being able to have a little bit of Easter fun. I think we all did! It was fun to see all of the bunny tails and if the fiber fell off, the animals and birds of the park would get some materials for nesting.
The Library created a Story Walk.
After the event, it was time to babysit our grand dog Connor. He’s a great dog and we had a fun day!
Here Jay is tiring him out and then afterwards he’s resting on “the soft seating”!
All in all a beautiful day before Easter.
I hope you all get to spend time with loved ones today. But first, some farm chores and then church and off to a friend’s house for a beautiful lunch.
The alpacas have a real huddle going on today. They love the sun!
In the meantime, remember to wash your hands, don’t touch your face, stay home but if you MUST go out, wear a mask and keep the length of an alpaca cria (which is a baby alpaca and about 3 feet long) between you and the next person.
Have a blessed Resurrection day!
