Easter Sunday: Quarantine Style

I can’t believe that Easter has come and gone! I hope that everyone had a wonderful Easter despite being in quarantine. I hope that everyone has had a wonderful day celebrating the resurrection of the Savior. Dale and I had a wonderful Easter Sunday! I don’t remember what we had for breakfast (I totally forgot to take a picture) but we had a lot of yummy food throughout the day.

One of the hardest things about this quarantine has been being away from family and friends. For my birthday, I was supposed to fly out to Utah but obviously that didn’t happen. Thankfully, Zoom, Facetime, and the Marco-Polo app have been a life saver with staying in touch.

We started off the day Facetiming my family. I was able to talk with my mom, step-dad, and siblings, and my dad and his extended family.

After we Facetimed my family, we went on a nature walk around the neighborhood and park. It wasn’t long (30 minutes) but it was so, so beautiful enjoying the flowers, and soaking up some Vitamin D today after spending time with our families. Here’s what we enjoyed on our nature walk around the neighborhood:

I’m grateful that we were able to go on a walk today despite the world still being in a pandemic. I think it’s important to honor your true emotions during this time. For me, I have had moments of anxiety to happiness to tears to excitement to peace. I’ve been an emotional roller coaster to say the least. But as I’ve taken the time to really listen to where my heart is at it has been easier to process what is going on in the world.

We can talk more about Covid-19 in another blog post. I don’t want to focus on that right now. Anyway, back to our Easter celebration!

One of the best things we did on Easter was watch this short Youtube video from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love how the video simplifies what the real meaning of Easter is: The resurrection of Jesus Christ. I’m so grateful for the Savior and for the ultimate sacrifice that He made.

For the rest of the day, we spent time with each other, and with Dale’s family. Dale’s brother and his wife surprised all of us in their car #SociallyDistantFamTime to wish us all a happy Easter! It was so sweet of them to stop by. It was definitely a weird feeling not having everyone together for a Easter dinner. Hopefully this quarantine won’t last much longer.

We had an amazing dinner that Dale and his dad made. It was delicious. These pictures do not give how good it tasted any justice. Once we ate dinner, and cleaned up we finished our wonderful Easter day by watching a few episodes of 24 on Hulu. Don’t judge us because Jack Bauer will come after you.

Anyway, I hope that you had a wonderful Easter day! Leave me a comment and tell me what you did on your Easter! Also, who else is a 24 fan?
