Easter Festivities

We have had a fun Spring break this week. We went to the park often, slept in, went to the Zoo with some friends, and yesterday we visited my sister Michelle and her family in Layton. We had an Easter egg hunt in her backyard and made some treats. The kids had a wonderful time and did not want to leave.

The kids couldn't see that pink egg on top of the porch roof. I told them if they stood there, they should be able to see took them a while before they actually saw it.
Enjoying the bounty.

Michelle and I made rice crispy treat eggs with M&M's inside that shook like a rattle. The kids loved them. Yes...we saw the commercial.inside the egg.

On Saturday morning while Randy and the kids were at the city Easter egg hunt, the actual Easter Bunny visited our house! It left us a note saying that he came a day early just for us. The bunny left us a dozen eggs and an egg coloring kit. It also filled up the kids Easter baskets with all kinds of goodies and then hid the baskets all around the house for us to find.

We are so glad that we had a fun time this spring break. I am especially glad that the Easter bunny could come a day early so that we can celebrate what Easter is really about on Sunday. Happy Easter Everybody!

I think the worse part of Easter was the easter grass and picking it up all over the house for weeks! Looks like a fun time for all of you!
