I know I’ve been terrible at posting lately but life has been busy, the good kind of busy lately. Before Christmas is here and before I forget about the many adventures we had in Bali, I wanted to share with you a little bit of our Easter escapade. Easter 2013 was very special. It was special because we have two
walking running, talking and swimming toddlers. It was special because we had four wonderful visitors with us. It was special because we once again remember how Jesus died for us and the sacrifice he did to give us life, everlasting.
For the Easter weekend we decided to fly over to Bali. We’ve been there a few times already and it just seems very different each time. On each occasion we discover new things and the boys seem to enjoy their visits more and more each time. The first time we visited I was pregnant with Josh and we went with my sister. Our second visit was with my dad and we did all kinds of fun stuff.
As soon as we got to the hotel the boys got in a festive mood and decided to make the most out of their visit. I was so happy to see them giggle and smile and just take everything in.
This time, we did a couple of different things. A first for us, was having lunch by the rice patties. What a wonderful experience. Not only was the food delectable, the view was astounding. Evan and Josh had tons of fun looking at all the locals walking by and I just enjoyed watching the boys grow stronger and more independent by the second.
Comme d’habitude, we stopped at our now favorite place in Bali, Bali Pulina, our preferred agro-tourism venue in Bali. Evan loves to visit his friends the civets and feed them beautiful red coffee berries. Our little roaster boy roasted some coffee beans and we enjoyed the view while we avoided the tropical rain.
I was a bit disappointed to be out of Jakarta for Easter, seeing that last year we had a blast celebrating Easter and participating in several Easter Egg Hunts. To my surprise and delight the hotel where we stayed had a special Easter Celebration for the kids which included an Easter Egg Hunt and a Chocolate Decorating Class. I was so excited to see the boys look for the Easter eggs although they were tiny quail eggs that Joshua decided to consume later on.
Overall, a wonderful Easter once again. We are so tremendously grateful for all the blessings from above and pray that our last year in Jakarta is full of surprises, adventures and everlasting friendships.
