I hope everyone had a “Hoppy Easter”! It was a fun one for us. The boys and I did a bit of traveling over the weekend. My bother, who just came back from his mission, was speaking in Houston and I wanted to be sure to support him. So we made the 4 hour trek.
*Update – I’m not preggers. This shirt is just sheer and flowy. 😉 ha ha
First, we made a stop over at Lisa’s. Her church was having a carnival and we decided to take the boys. I’m so glad we did, they went all out! Here we are at the petting zoo. Drake loved the horse and miniature monkey. He kept going back to see them.
Lisa and I competed in the human bungee race. She beat me, but only by like 2 inches! Considering she’s a lot taller than I am, I was proud of myself. We did it several times with the same result. It was the highlight of the carnival for me.
Both boys took their turn.
After the carnival we took a 3 mile walk and then the boys played in the sprinklers in Lisa’s backyard. Afterwards, they took a quick bath.
That night we had an Easter egg hunt but we used these “Lights Out!” eggs in complete darkness. I got them at Wal-mart. They each come with one golden egg. Everyone had such a blast! I think this will be a new tradition we adopt at our house.
I was delighted to not have to cook and color eggs this year. Yeah!
Here’s Davis in the dark showing off his eggs.
Sunday we listened to Scott’s talk. He sang a musical number as well and did such an amazing job. I was glad we make the extra effort to be there.
Lisa and I were up to no good and made everyone do silly poses for our blogs. This is us with our Mom (middle).
The boys loved what the “Easter Bunny” delivered, Webkinz. I don’t do much candy since our house is crazy enough without it. 😉
We tried and tried to get a nice picture with the cousins, but it just wasn’t happening.
We had a traditional hunt Sunday afternoon then everyone played a little throw football.
I love it that 2 of my boys were old enough to play and hang out with their Uncles. I realized that it won’t be long until they’re as tall as I am and asking for money. I felt like time slowed down a little for me to cease the moment. I’m glad I have this blog to capture the moment again.
What was your favorite family moment yesterday?
