{Easter}

I hope everyone had a nice Easter! We had great speakers at church on Sunday who really set the mood for reflection and thanks to our Savior for the sacrifice he made for all of us. I love that my boys are getting older and can grasp the true meaning of Easter....that it's not about candy and egg hunts but a celebration of Christ's Resurrection.


We do the egg hunts and baskets on Saturday. This year it was raining off and on all Saturday. The big city egg hunt was canceled....luckily Aunt Kaija in Mesa hosted an egg hunt and lunch at her house. She had the perfect backyard....full of trees, plants, and dry riverbeds for eggs to be hidden in. I love being around my cute cousins!!










This is a little backwards but I couldn't move the pictures....the boys woke up Saturday morning to find that the Easter Bunny (Aunt Ally) had left them a clue so they needed to go on a scavenger hunt to find their eggs. It was fun to sit back and watch them run around the house and do it on their own since Rhett's reading so well now. My boys are growing up so fast...

Oh my Brooke! Your boys are so cute. The picture of them with their matching ties is to die for. That is so fun that Rhett is reading and can lead the boys along on the hunt. What a group!

Love the picture of your boys in matching outfits! They are so cute Brooke! What a fun Easter you guys had. A scavenger hunt sounds great, I'll have to try that next year.
