Prelude to Easter

Rebecca, Catherine, Esme and I are out in Townsend, Massachusetts for the weekend. We’re staying at Rebecca’s parents’ house and spending Easter with them. It’s always great to get away for a little bit and be with people who mean a lot to you. Today, after a brief shopping trip around the North Shore, we headed up to Townsend. Our first order of business was coloring some Easter eggs. This year we had a batch of incredible colors. Just look!

After coloring the eggs, we all drove out to Ashby to visit Trap Falls. It’s always been a favorite spot of ours. There’s a little picnic area, a rushing stream, sunlight pleasantly filtering through pine trees, a short hiking trail and rocks to climb, and of course, the Falls. Here you can see Catherine and Grandpa sitting up above the falls.

After our trip to the falls, we made a quick stop at home to do a quick bit of net fishing in the pond behind the house. We didn’t come up with much except a few salamanders!

We then headed out to dinner at Griffing’s Side Trax, formerly known as the Riverside, a restaurant just across the border in Brookline, New Hampshire. Good service, very kind friendly, delicious food. Catherine ordered exactly what she wanted (mashed potatoes and apple sauce) and had no complaints. Esme had no complaints about the pork loin Nonni shared with her! We all headed home stuffed and ready for bed.

Tomorrow will be church at TCCUCC, then Easter dinner here at the Lowes’ house. Corey and Vicky will be coming out tomorrow, too!

For those of you who celebrate Easter, I hope that you’re able to enjoy the day, and that it will be one of rest, peace, and remembrance of the miracle of Christ’s resurrection.
