Our first Easter in La Paz was very eventful. We started the day before with Egg Painting and Decorating. My sister and parents would be very proud of Luka. Easter Egg Painting is a big tradition in my house, and my sister absolutely loves it. I was always into other holidays, but Moqui always made sure we decorated eggs for Easter. My favorite part was all the egg salad we would eat after Easter....who doesn't love a good egg salad sandwich!
Luka did a great job, but Sammy wasn't too into the festivities and with the amount of water and glass on the table I thought it was wise for him to play in the next room with Papa.
So Easter eggs, check! Now we were ready for the big day ahead.
Sammy made a beautiful mess at breakfast. He absolutely loves yogurt and this time he battled with the plastic cup and I think the yogurt might have won, but we all had a blast watching the fight.
Look, I wasn't the only one that thought this would make a great photo opportunity. Luka ran to his room to fetch his camera and photograph his little brother. Don't you love Sam's look. I am not sure if he likes too many people taking his picture.
After breakfast and clean-up the four of us went to Easter Service at the La Paz Community Church. Being a Catholic girl the service was a little bit different, but it was still a celebration of Jesus' resurrection and it was refreshing and Luka liked the music.
After church we went to have Easter BBQ brunch at Stefan's house (Luka's classmate). The BBQ was delicious and the boys had a blast playing in every corner of the yard. Since it was Sam's first Easter I found it necessary to snap a few portraits to remember the day.
He wasn't too happy until he found things on the floor that he could stick in his mouth. I am not sure what they are, but they made him smile. Good enough for me!
Sam also wanted to get into the Easter decorating action. Maria Renee, Stefan's mom, had a whole station set up for the kids to paint, decorate and do all sorts of crafts.
Hey, is that the Easter Bunny! Wow, we had our own bunny at the BBQ. Trying to the get bunny and 8 children to look at the camera proved to be a big challenge.
Mommy & Sammy saying goodbye to the Easter Bunny. He has to run to deliver more Easter greetings...must be hard to hop around all the mountains in La Paz.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you receive the automatic updates, you are probably confused because it is not April, but I just found these photos and decided to post on the blog. The post will appear in order so if you don't receive the updates then you probably won't even know it is there, but I am a little crazy about posting in chronological order. Enjoy!
