Family Easter Sunday

Yesterday was a full day for us. Marshall had an engagement after lunch, so we had an early breakfast with him to start the day.

Then, Motor Man’s family gathered at the home of one of his sisters for lunch: 14 adults as well as five little ones under the age of five.

We had a nice lunch, and enjoyed catching up with family members we hadn’t seen since Christmas.

There were Easter baskets to be opened:

And a piggyback ride:

The little ones always have fun together. We were happy that all five of them sat (somewhat) still for a quick photo session.

And we got to meet four-week-old Aaron, the newest member of the family, and “Nanny’s” fifth great grandchild.

Parents and grandparents were busy keeping up with those energetic little ones. Motor Man and I didn’t have any responsibilities there, but we came home and took an afternoon nap anyway.
