Just for you, my dear readers and friends (even my non-friends…you know who you are), here are some photos from the Easter weekend of 2017.
Enter into my world 😉
It all started on Friday when Katie (my daughter) and I went to downtown Chattanooga to renew her car tags – then realized the courthouse was closed. Go figure.
Just outside of the old courthouse in Chattanooga. The courthouse is behind me out of view. The fountain was dedicated many years ago to two firemen that died.
Oh my gosh! Olive Chattanooga is unbelievable! I never knew this place existed, but Katie and I stumbled upon it and fell in love. You have GOT to try the garlic-stuffed olives!
Saturday afternoon I officiated a wedding. The ceremony took place on a bluff overlooking the valley in Dayton, TN.
A view from inside the beautiful house where the wedding took place.
The happy couple, Mr. & Mrs. Peter and Tina King!
Early Sunday Morning
Sunday morning we attended the Christian Motorcyclists Association’s Easter sunrise service.
After the sunrise service motorcycles and their riders were prayed for. They call it the “blessing of the bikes.”
Easter Morning at Church

After church the four of us went out and split a couple of meals at a Chinese restaurant. After all, what is Easter without Chinese food, right?
Then, after lunch, we went to the Chickamauga dam and flew kites – or at least tried. It was the first time in many years, and it was actually quite fun. All along we kept singing (or at least I did) the song from Mary Poppins.
Before we packed up the kites we unpacked the instruments for a little practice and a short video.
Katie and I recorded a video on Facebook Live. We played “Leaning On the Everlasting Arms.”
Back at the house, I finished up the Easter weekend with a little carpenter bee hunting. Got 2!
It was a really sweet, extended Easter weekend. I hope yours was as blessed as mine.
