Let's Party!!!

Easter Sunday: All sugared up and ready to go to church!

We had an awesome Easter party at Nana and Papa Jack's complete with a great dutch oven dinner (thanks dad), basketball, crazy cousins, egg coloring, and of course, Easter egg hunting!!!

Notice Asthons homemade t-shirt! She came up with this idea and had it done and on before I even knew what she was doing. All the kids liked it and wanted to make one, maybe next year we will add t-shirt coloring to the festivities!!

I am not sure the Easter Bunny needs to come. Looks like the baskets are full!!!!

Avery, Skylar and Alayna "best friends"( at least most of the time)
This was the last picture we got before the dreaded trampoline accident the ended up with Alayna in the hospital with a broken leg.

Everyone gathered round to color eggs!

We had another great party and Grandma and Grandpa Ekins house! It has been a tradition to hide Rylie, Gabe and Lexi's eggs and prizes so hard that it takes them most of the day to find them all, but do to the near freezing temperatures this day, they got off pretty easy.

Ashton counting to make sure she had found all her eggs!

Skylar's favorite prize was her pink dress-up hat. We could not get her to take it off!


Doug scoping out the sweets!

All the kids with their baskets! Swimsuits are always a favorite basket filler!!


Skylar just can not figure out how the Easter Bunny brought her a ball because "he has no hands". Over and over again she would ask me and Doug and the kids "How did he do that? He only has paws, you can't hold a ball with paws".

"Great minds think alike!"

I had this great idea to go to the Zoo over Spring Break.... apparently so did almost every other mom in the greater Salt Lake Valley! But we did not
let the millions of people stop us from enjoying the great weather, good friends and of course all the crazy animals!
Can you believe this, we had to wait in line for like a half hour just to get in!!!
Skylar is making the skunk face, this skunk just climbed up the glass right in front of her and gave her a big "Kiss"!!!
We all had a great time and loved the warm weather, we even ended up buying sun screen!
