Happy Easter!

This year we spent Easter with my side of the family.  Saturday we had the usual Easter egg hunt which is always so fun!  Every year we each get a basket and in the basket we get a little bit of candy and then the last few years my mom has been putting really fun stuff in there, too.  Like this year I got a bag of Sun Chips, a carton of blackberries and a pear and Ben got beef jerky, Chicken in a Biscuit crackers and a pineapple.  I love the kind of odd, but totally-better-than-candy things we get in our baskets!  

There are also 4-5 eggs hidden with our name on them:  2 eggs with little candies and 3 eggs with clues in them.  The clues take you back inside where a little "prize" is hiding.  It's so fun and my mom comes up with the most clever clues!  For the prizes we usually get a pair of flip-flops, a shirt and a movie or something similar.  I love that it isn't just a bunch of candy and even though we're all adults and there are only 3 grandchildren, I love that we still do a hunt.  Although, it is pretty funny when people drive past and they can only see adults walking around the yard with Easter baskets, looking for eggs.  :)

So excited to tell Grandpa what she found!

We had to leave early so I didn't get very many pictures, but it was still fun.  :)

On Sunday I taught Singing Time in Primary and we had a great lesson.  I love seeing all those cute kids feeling the Spirit and learning and understanding gospel principles.  After church, we had a big Easter dinner.  My favorites were the ham, potatoes and homemade raspberry ice cream.  It was absolutely delicious!  

My sister made these adorable Easter egg nests.  Bonus:  they tasted good, too!

We also finished dyeing all of the eggs we didn't get to on Saturday and spent some time outside because the weather was so nice.

Doesn't Sarah have the cutest kids?  And they all have such fun, unique and adorable personalities.  :)  I can't wait until next Easter!

Easter is so fun at moms. We're so lucky that we get to benefit from her love of easter surprises. She's the best. And you're the best. Lub.
