We had a great Easter weekend this year. I really enjoyed having it on Conference Weekend. Our Easter celebrations began the Saturday before. Abby and I made our usual bunny cupcakes for the BBQ. We had fun putting them together and I have decided that they are much cuter with the coconut but I have learned that the kids won't eat them with coconut so we left it off this year. I think they still turned out cute.
We went to our good friends house for a BBQ and Easter Egg Hunt. We always love going to the Hydes and the kids had a lot of fun eating and hanging out with their friends.
This is Jake, Grace's very favorite friend. They are only one week apart in age and they play so well together. I just love to watch and listen to them.
Grace had so much fun searching for eggs. The kids had to work hard to find them. As soon as we were done, we all jumped in our cars and took the kids to see the movie, How To Train A Dragon. We loved that movie and will probably buy it when it comes out on DVD. It was that good!
Before Taylor and Dave left for the priesthood session that evening, we quickly got the eggs ready for coloring. All of the kids put on their aprons from Nana and Papa and got to work. Grace had a blast and I would say that Carlee worked the hardest and was the most patient. She ended up with the brightest eggs. We had such a fun, fast and furious day. The kids were in Heaven and worn out by the end of the day. Perfect!
Easter morning was filled with the kids searching for their baskets, a great breakfast and Grace playing with her favorite gift, Bubbles! All before conference began which was the perfect way to spend easter, with our family and listening to our prophet.
