A Different Kind of Easter

 We traded our Easter dresses for sandy toes this year and it was wonderful.  We've never been to the beach for Easter, but when some dear friends invited us, we couldn't say no.

 This full rainbow greeted us the first evening.  It was only about 30 yards out in the ocean from our beach house. 
We visited the Currituck Lighthouse.  214 steps to the top, but the view of the Outer Banks was totally worth it! 
  Super windy and cold, but we like that wind-blown look. ;) 

 Bringing big hair back!

My friend, Samantha, taught us how to tie-dye shirts, something I had never done before.  She's very creative, as you can tell by her adorable monogram egg:
The kids spent lots of time on the beach.  The water was freezing cold, but by the last day they couldn't resist getting in.  
Our week ranged from summer temps to winter temps.  
Bathing suits to winter jackets.
Easter dawned beautiful on the Outer Banks.

I'm not a morning person, but I really wanted to see the sunrise on Easter morning.  I awoke just in time to see it.  No camera, just me and the Lord having a little worship service of our own.
 The kids read scripture and reminded us of the greatest day in history: the day Jesus defied the grips of death and overcame the grave!

What a blessing it was to get away and celebrate LIFE! 

 How do you celebrate Easter?
