Welcome to Project Snapshot

In this space we endeavor to capture a memory with camera, just words, or both. Share a memory from your week that you do not wish to forget — a laugh with a child, a moment with a spouse, a memory gathered while alone. In time we will have a collection of memories to treasure.

My Snapshot

I hope you had a blessed Easter! We surely did. It was truly an event this year. For the first time in a few years I got to attend The Mass of the Lord’s Supper AND Good Friday service.

Then on Saturday we met up with my family for our annual dinner and festivities, and finally Sunday morning we celebrated the resurrection in our beautiful parish church at the [7:00] AM Mass. Then I promptly came home and took a nap!

There were egg hunts — at GG’s and then our Knights of Columbus put on a super one for the kids, wonderful food for the feast (prime rib anyone?) and even a family baseball game, along with the annual raw egg toss. Those were two separate events.

Someone hit a homerun at the game (yes, the outfielders were five, but it STILL counts!) and then was sore today to pay for it. Ouch! I haven’t moved that fast in too long a time.

Egg toss fun! Somehow the adults are never this enthusiastic when it is our turn to play.

The younger grandkids (there are two teens as well) ranging in age from four (Thomas) to eight (Olivia).

  • Oliva’s disheveled-ness is cracking me up. 🙂 Sounds like you had a fabulous Easter Sunday!

  • Lisa says:

    I agree with Sarah! 🙂 I also love the expression on John’s face with the green bucket and the last one of Thomas with the egg in his hair!

    • Pam Barnhill says:

      We certainly don’t lack personality around here, as you well-know. 😉

  • Tamara says:

    A raw egg toss is such a fun idea! I love all the pictures but especially the joy over the contents of the purple bucket.

    I love the Mass of the Lord’s Supper and Good Friday service. Im so glad you got to go.

    • Pam Barnhill says:

      Me too Tamara. Thursday’s Mass might just be my favorite of the entire year. My mom has made us do that egg toss since before the kids were big enough to join in. Now they love it, but everyone has to participate. Fortunately I was on the throwing end of the broken egg this year.
