• We got to be there "THE" Easter Egg Hunt. My Aunt Tina puts an egg hunt together every year for willing participants - everybody has an assigned color and certain number of eggs, and then we got to hide eggs for each other (younger "hunters" have to wait inside) The older participants were sure to have some extremely difficult/hard to reach/hard to find eggs. And, it was surprising how easy it was to forget where you put the eggs. It was so fun, and I was happy to be there with the girls to participate in this tradition that we have only ever heard about over the phone.
• We used real eggs to stuff with candy this year, it was fun.
• We did some stuff - children's museum, Thanksgiving Point, BYU for the Karl Bloch exhibit, seeing cousins, grandma, etc. etc.
•After insisting, getting grumpy, insisting some more, my dad still flew out to help me with the drive and then helped me drive back and flew home again. I'm thankful for great parents.
Beckam - he wants to live outside.
Ashlee had almost the whole month of April off - our elementary school is on a modified year round schedule. In fact, Maggie is done with school now (her last day was Friday) but Ashlee will be in school until the end of June. Paige is in HEAVEN when her sisters are home. That last picture is one day that Paige and Ashlee spent the morning making mud food - behold a mud ice cream cone. Our dirt is so full of clay, it feels like you could just throw it on a wheel and make a lovely mug... :)
