Easter Sunday

What a great day of celebration - to acknowledge the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

We decided as a family to go out to dinner. Additionally, the kids had to research a scripture about Easter aka Resurrection Sunday to discuss over dinner. We all had a GREAT time - even Muddear. I assume that Muddear's daily confinement to the house is what makes our monthly excursions so enjoyable. This month we had three if you include our Easter dinner at Cracker Barrel.

Cracker Barrel is not a restaurant where we dine often. However, its "triple threat quality" makes Cracker Barrel a success every time.

  1. A wide selection of home cooked meals;
  2. Large portions; and
  3. Economically priced.

Who could ask for more? Oh yeah - the kids love it and Muddear does too after this first dining experience. I was amazed by the amount of food she ate - which further confirms my theory that Muddear hates my cooking! It's okay, as Muddear says..."not everybody loves everything."

Muddear had dinner, dessert, and hot chocolate! I could not have asked for a better day -not to mention the brief reprieve from Muddear's Dementia induced insanity!
