The simple things in life

Easter is a special weekend for our little family.  More so than Christmas in my opinion because it is our Easter traditions that brought us to our tree-change location.  We used to spend the chocolate-themed weekend here in Bright well before we ever lived here.  We’d sit around a campfire, sing songs and play games with friends.  There is always a group of around 30-40 people camping at a friend’s property surrounded by the pine forests and river.  Days are simple and fun; talking, laughing and without electronics.  Evenings are filled with toasted marshmallows, camp songs and a few red wines.

I relish these simple times.  The kids ride their bikes, wear themselves out and sleep soundly.  The adults chat and solve the problems of the world.  It reminds me what ‘it’s’ all about.  Friendships and memories created to last a lifetime.

Happy Easter everyone.  I hope you’ve all had a lovely, relaxing weekend.

What are your Easter traditions?
