Easter 2011

This Easter was filled with lots of excitement and enthusiasm. We started the weekend of with an egg hunt and picnic for Aby's class. Our neighborhood is filled with lots of little pocket parks tucked between the houses. The kids walked to a nearby one.

Some special moms hid all the eggs.

They had made their own bunny basket during the week.

Once they found their eggs they got to sit and eat lunch together.

Mrs. Hale had planned games for them to play before going back to their classroom. They each got a partner for an egg toss.

Then they had a relay race where they had to hop like a bunny with it's carrots.

Chris and I could not have asked for a better group of kids for Aby to start her school career with. I can't believe there is one month left. But that's a different post ;(

Saturday we woke up and went to a neighborhood egg hunt. That was fun and it was neat to see the different neighbors out there. I don't have pictures to upload because they are on Chris' fancy camera =)

Sunday, as usual, was a hustle and bustle of a morning. The Easter Bunny doesn't come to our house until the afternoon. We had a wonderful Sunday morning with nearly 450 people showing up to all 3 Quests at church. There were so many new guests that it was hard to make it around to greet them all. Plus there were only 15 minutes in between each one for that made it more difficult. The brand new playground was up and running. It was so fun to watch all the kids playing and having their egg hunts all morning long. These kids have been salivating for weeks over this playground. And I must admit the twisty slide is mighty fun to go down!!! My parents and grandfather came down for church, and then we all went up to Temple to have lunch at Don and Jackie's. Leasha, Brian, and the girls were also there along with Chris' grandma and aunt.
Here they are opening their Easter baskets.

Mac got some new toys for the water table.

Aby got some new coloring books and a 1st grade workbook.

Then the hunt was on.

It's hard to believe how quickly these two are growing up. And I can't believe that next year there will be one more added to this picture. We are very excited about the fact that we get to find out tomorrow what God will bless us and complete our family with. We are content with boy or girl. We know no matter what this new little child will be a joy and we look forward to seeing how they will fit in with the mix.
