Easter Egg Dash and Unexpected Blessings

This morning we headed out to Hilo Coffee Mill with our kiddos from Project Visitation for the Easter Egg Dash.

It was our first time to the event (even though it’s the 3rd year they’ve done it). There were tons of people, live music, a dunk tank, face painting, a woodcarving display, the Hiccup Circus – with a juggling act, aerialists , etc; food, games, crafts and jewelry, market produce and plants for sale.It really was an impressive showing and the drizzling rain didn’t seem to slow anyone down at all. It was definitely a good morning – and we are so appreciative of all the work put into bringing the community together.

Later we went home, I was feeling lazy so I decided to head out for a run. On my way home, Di and Trish came by with a most awesome Easter surprise:

You mean we need water?”

Feeling thankful and blessed as Easter approaches. I hope yours is full of blessings too!
