The Passion Play

The girls are participating in the Passion Play of Denver each night this week. This is Laura's second year to take part. She talked her sister into joining in this year. Rebecca wasn't too sure about participating at first, but now that the performances have started, she is loving it. It's been a great experience for both of them.

Their first performance was Palm Sunday evening, so Lyle and I went to see it that night. The girls are part of the Crowd. They don't have speaking parts, but I think the Crowd is an important part of the play. It wouldn't be the Easter story without the Crowd, now would it? I told them they could be Jesus' friends, Mary and Martha, sisters in the New Testament.

I asked Laura to take off her glasses for the picture, but she didn't want to. She isn't allowed to wear them for the play, and she got tired of people telling her take them off! Oh, well.

He is Risen!

An Evening Drive

My parents visited us last week for Dad's spring break. One evening we took them for a drive up to Lookout Mountain Park.
A herd of mule deer were ambling around when we arrived. They weren't scared of us.
I was able to get quite close to take some pictures
 We walked around for a little bit, but the wind kicked up and it was pretty nippy.
We decided we could see enough from the car.
 It's neat to be able to see downtown Denver from up there.
 When we got back to town the sun was setting.
 Lyle pulled over so we could enjoy it.
I snapped picture after picture.
These were taken in a parking lot about a half mile from our house.

What a lovely way to spend a spring evening!
