Easter Weekend

Bryan had another long weekend for Easter so we enjoyed getting to spend 4 days together again. Friday morning I needed to do a 5 mile run so we went to check out the Clarksville Greenway. Here is an excerpt from an article that describes the Greenway better than I can:
The Clarksville Greenway extends 3.6 miles and is expected to grow in the future. The trail, which follows the path of old railway beds, has been paved and a grassy shoulder now lines the path. The trail is open to walkers, runners and bike riders. Families looking for leisure can also enjoy the new Greenway by using the benches, picnic tables and swings on the pathway.
We took Marlie's tricycle and she and Bryan enjoyed wandering around while I ran.
We had hoped to go to the Nashville Zoo's EggstravaganZoo on Saturday, but the weather wasn't very encouraging. We decided to go ahead to Nashville, but went to the mall instead. Marlie & I dyed eggs on Saturday afternoon but I forgot to take pictures! We had fun but made a mess!
Sunday morning we put on our Sunday best and went to church. Afterwards M requested that we go to a restaurant, so we enjoyed an early lunch outside on the deck at Rafferty's. Here are some pictures we took after we got home from church.
M got some new sunglasses in her Easter basket

Unfortunately we couldn't get a family picture together so Bryan & I each took a picture with M.

M & her basket

We had a back yard egg hunt with some neighbors and M enjoyed eating her candy afterwards.

On Monday morning, M had her first swim lesson of the year. I wasn't crazy about her lessons last year, so we are trying the YMCA this time. Hopefully she'll learn a little more. She was definitely comfortable in the water!

Singing a song

Look at that kicking!

Dont you just hate when you cant get a family picture. We often have that same problem. M looks so adorable as she always and I love her little basket. Glad you guys had a good holiday.

Marlie looks precious. I love her Easter dress. And you look great! Love her easter basket that i'm sure you made too. Oh, and I bought Ava that same blue bathing suit at children's place :)
So are you going to reside at Campbell when Bryan deploys? Just wondering.
