Easter weekend started off with a quick trip to the city wide egg hunt. We got there right before it started and 10 minutes later we were on our way home. The kids had a fun time and it is definitely part of our Easter tradition. That afternoon, Dan's brother and his family came over to visit and the kids had a blast playing with their cousins! Saturday night we dyed eggs and ironed clothes for 8:30 church! Crazy! Sunday morning the Easter bunny had visited and the kids found their baskets and some hidden eggs in the family room. We got dressed fast and took pictures in the matching clothes and amazingly we were only 10 minutes late! Easter dinner was ham, cheesy potatoes, jello, rolls and corn. I copied a cake my sister Amy had made and put my own little Easter basket twist on it. Overall, it was a fun day being together as a family and remembering the sacrifice that Christ made for us.

This week the kids are out of school for Spring Break and it's also Dan's last week at Infotrax. He has been able to get off a little early every day to spend time with us and today we decided to go to the zoo together. It was so fun! The weather was perfect and since not all of Utah is out of school this week, the zoo was not crowded at all. Grant loved seeing the monkeys, Ben loved the giraffe, Kylie's favorite was the bald eagle and Bradley loved the reptiles. We rode the train and carousel and by the end we were all pooped. On the way home we stopped at Ikea for a couple little things and some meatballs...yum! It was a great day!

Our little Kylie turned 7 on March 30th. We had a fun "cooking" birthday party for her. She invited 6 friends to come over and we had a blast making dinner and dessert. We made mini pizzas and cookie dough cupcakes. For fun, we made and decorated chef's hats out of poster board and tissue paper. My sister made the cutest aprons for the kids as a "thank you" gift. It was a busy 2 hours, but I think the kids had a lot of fun! Happy Birthday, Kylie! We are so happy she is in our family!!
