Easter Weekend

Our Easter weekend was great!! We had lots of fun,
and we ate waaaayyyy toooooo much candy . . .

Poor Vance (and Noah too, but we didn't photograph him). They really ate too much. In a "sick" way, (pun intended) Nathan is proud that his boys finish off Easter the same way he did as a kid.

We started the weekend at Washington Terrace City's egg hunt. I thought about maybe going to South Ogden's hunt instead, since it's just around the corner from us, but it seemed wrong. We've spent all week helping Nathan fill eggs for the Terrace. Besides, the kids are convinced that it's their Dad's hunt. The egg hunt went well. Close to 1,000 people there. The kids got a ton of candy. I didn't take any pictures this time. I just enjoyed it.

The afternoon and evening was spent at Grandma's and Grandpa's. The real highlight of the day for the kids was that they got to see Samson, their new cousin, for the first time! They talk non-stop about him. Can ya blame them? He's pretty cute!!

We did 2 eggs hunts at Grandma and Grandpa's. One was for their Easter baskets and chocolate eggs. Lots of candy, they were in heaven. Marlee was very competitive this year.

We had to tell her to hold back a bit, or I think she would have found/taken EVERYTHING.

The other hunt was outside for the "real" eggs. Again, lots of fun. Elijah was so careful to put his eggs in his basket without cracking them. Unfortunately he tripped in the gutter, and all his eggs spilled out and were seriously smashed.

We attempted to get a cute photo of us, but it didn't seem to go very well.

There, this one is much better!!

Sunday morning we gave the kids their chocolate bunnies.

Van kept saying all day long, "This is the best Easter EVER!!"

Noah was pretty happy too.

And then we made them wait till after church for our egg hunt.
(I wanted them in their Easter clothes)

Marlee's "glowing" a bit in this picture. It's just proof that the sun really was shining.
