Easter!



     We spent Easter this year in St. George with my parents.  There was a big neighborhood egg hunt out in the rocks by my parents house and then a big potluck breakfast.  The children were only allowed to find 10 eggs, and then they got to choose a prize.  Ayden picked a sling-shot, while Christopher went for the silly string and Tory got a bucket and shovel.  The silly string was gone in about 3 minutes and Tory's cousin, Evan, laid claim to her shovel! 
     Later that day, Grandma held a money easter egg hunt.  Grandma told Ayden that the small eggs had more money, but he didn't heed her warning and went for the big ones that were easier to locate.  Thus he found the least amount of money!  Tory made the biggest haul.  With Dad helping her, she "found" the 5$ egg.  Ayden was very upset! 
     We then decorated eggs with stickers until a late lunch of barbecued chicken and it was time for Evan's birthday party.  There was cake and lots of Thomas the train presents.  It was a very busy and fun day for everyone.

Bouncing, Jumping, Sliding



A few weeks ago we all went to a friend's birthday party held at a jump place.  The kids had a ball jumping on the bounce pillows and going down the giant blow-up slides.  Ayden declared that this is what he wants to do for his birthday now.  It was so relaxing for the adults as well...we just let them go wild and we sat on the couches and talked with all of the adults.  Fun times!  =)
