All In One Sunday, No. 3

Today was a joyous church and family day. The pictures below only represent a small portion of all that went on. The first two pictures are from church and the next four are from our family gathering on the home farm. Unfortunately, not all could be in attendance because of distance and sickness. But it was good being with those who could be there.

My day began with attending an Easter Breakfast at church sponsored by our church youth as a fundraising effort for their upcoming summer mission project at a camp in one of the New England states. They served us scrambled eggs, toast and dry beef gravy, and hash browns among other things. Delicious!

Every Easter Sunday, we usually have people playing trumpets and/or trumbones. The guy to the left is one of my brothers and the guy to the right is our lead pastor.

Here's another of my brothers from Michigan with our three nieces.

Here are us guys out talking and playing with Dad's dog Sparky.

Here's one of my brothers and his wife and two year old son riding a cart built by another of my brothers.

Here's my brother from Michigan, three nieces, and a nephew enjoying the glider on the front porch.

This IS a great snapshot into your life and family, Tim. I have such fond memories of Easter sunrise services and breakfasts!

Man! How many siblings do you have? And where does your MI brother live?? I'm from Michigan!

My elder son ( Etienne, in english "Stephen" ) uses to play the tuba. "Saxhorn basse si bémol". It sounds like bass trombone.
But there is a but. In France, I mean near Paris, it's difficult to find such a nice way to play together.
