Faces and Places, part 3

Next stop on the whirlwind tour: Easter festivities in Louisville, Kentucky! The Annual Easter Egg Hunt at Bingham Park was a blast and, of course, over in about 5 minutes. That didn't stop Christin from enjoying a hard-boiled egg though!
Easter in Louisville means the Annual Frankfort Avenue Parade as well. We joined in (after drying off since we got caught in a short cloudburst) and had a great time. Who's this with me, you may ask? A dear sister in Christ, Clara. I had most recently seen her on the other side of the world, it was crazy to see her in Louisville again!

Face painting was an exciting event for all three girls--Clara Anne had a bunny painted on her cheek, her absolute favorite animal.
Our home church, Clifton Baptist, is located on Frankfort Avenue and so participated in the parade.
Lots of kids! They were dressed up to show part of the Easter story.
We asked our good friend Robert to join us at the egg hunt and parade, and then had a wonderful meal together afterwards. Three cheers for chips and salsa!!!

The day was so beautiful, we spent the afternoon at Cave Hill Cemetary, our favorite spot in Louisville. It's quiet, beautiful, peaceful, and very well maintained. The daffodils were out in full array and Clara Anne and Chloe especially enjoyed picking these violets out of the grass.

New game: Pile on Daddy! We had such a wonderful afternoon there.
That evening we had a great time with our hosts, John and Sarah Kimbell. They very graciously offered their basement (and house--I sort of feel like we took over their house!) for our use while we stayed in Louisville. Our kids had a great time, and so did we! Here's proof:

Dinner on the deck!

Sarah and I had many great conversations (and late nights!). Thank you for your friendship, Sarah! We had lots to talk about (always!) and really enjoyed our time together. What a treasure!

The Kimbell family, on Easter Sunday. Location: right outside their home! It's a beautiful home and yard, and everything was so green and pretty by the time we got to Louisville. We were (and still are) soaking it up!
Hope you enjoyed this installment . . . more to come! Stay tuned!

I love hearing about all the travels and friends you are seeing - regardless of the fact that I don't know them! It just makes me smile thinking about our last time in the states and the times coming up!
Have fun!!
