Mitch, Mercy, and Cam
Obi was feeling a little shy, but started to warm up
Cam brought presents--chocolate bunnies!
Tara and Wes were so seriously awesome with our kids!
The Holiday Inn was a great choice for hanging out. The kids played a ton and there was plenty of space for us all. There were 3 pools and 2 hot tubs/whirlpools, plus ping pong and a playground.
Mercy, Zeke, and Tirzah. Mercy LOVED swimming. She also loved Cam. :)
Tara, Eden, Caleb, and Malachi
Tables in the spacious lobby provided great space for us to play games while the kids ran around. I brought over chicken wild rice soup in a crock pot. Yum.
Later Mercy enjoyed her first ever chocolate bunny. So fun!
Patrick's family sent a care package from Germany. They included some really neat egg dye that you just rub on the eggs. Malachi, Mercy, and Zeke helped me color some hard-boiled eggs.
They turned out so unique and pretty!
Wes and Obi. So silly!
We had Cam up a second time on Saturday night. We strapped him in a little better to the rocking chair. Micah posted a funny video of Cam actually rocking in the chair.
After we put the kids to bed, Mitch and I got to go back to the hotel with Cam for some "alone" time with him. Genna went too but she slept the entire time (awesome baby!). It was so fun to spend that time with Cam. He shared pictures and more of his story. It was great that I could focus on what he was saying (he talks quietly) and not be interrupted by kids. Parts of his story are heart-wrenching, and I admire him even more. I so appreciate his openness with us. I hope he can always continue beat Mitch and Micah at AoE (Ages of Empires).
Resurrection Sunday we met at church for worship.
(Yes, Tirzah is pouting.)

My girls all dressed up! (It was way too chaotic to try to get more than this.)

And one last pic of Mercy, out of order because I'm too tired to try to wrangle blogger into putting it in the right spot. I'm definitely too tired to do the html. :)
