Easter Sunday (our family of four) pt. 1

Easter Sunday we woke up at our own house. The Easter bunny left a few treats for the kids and we got ready for church together. Wyatt LOVED wearing a tie just like Daddy does and Sissy always enjoyed getting dressed up. ;) We attended the 9am service, as usual

but after church we went to STL bread and enjoyed a little lunch together. It was fun eating together! After lunch we visited Ryder...
(the closest thing to a family photo we will have here on Earth)

It was a peaceful afternoon and both Wyatt and Sloane were able to get out of the car. 

It's always such a bittersweet time while we are there. It's interesting to me how my feelings have changed regarding a cemetery or anything "remembrance" actually. To be honest I remember "before" thinking why someone would want the constant reminder, why would someone want to keep being sad, why, why why, and now...I regret ever thinking those thoughts. Now being where WE ARE I can't imagine Ryder not being in my thoughts, I can't imagine not having a physical place to visit him, I can't imagine not having reminders of him. He is a part of us...not WAS a part of us...IS A PART OF OUR FAMILY and forever will be IN OUR HEARTS. 

After visiting Ryder we went back home and let the kids nap. It was a peaceful early afternoon...we were tapping our feet around 1pm for Sissy to wake up. We loaded up the car and headed over to Mark's Aunt and Uncle's house for Easter with his mom's side of the family.
