Easter Weekend

We were supposed to be away on a family vacation this weekend with my family. First it was Arizona, then it was Montana, and because of my Dad's health we ended with staying home. We had made some plans of things that we would do with the kids, so we were sure to include all of those. Friday Morning we got to go swimming at Grandma and Grandpa Nielsons - then we had to litterally pull my kids away so that we could go to Grandma and Grandpa Darkers for some burgers. My grandma and grandpa Fox, and my Aunt Sandy and Uncle Kim came up for the day. It was fun to see them.

My cousin Meghan also came into town and stopped by to see my Dad. After lunch we took the kids to see the movie Hop - by far the favorite is a bunny that poops jelly beans.

Saturday was Ethan's first day of soccer, and he is pretty good when he is not whining and crying. We made Easter dinner and hosted it at our house so that my Mom and Dad wouldn't have anything to stress about. We have a small house, but we made everyone fit. We died Easter eggs, decorated sugar cookies and played some games with my family. It was a divine day!

This morning started out great! The kids slept until almost 8, found their Easter loot, ate waffles, and then I got everyone ready for church in their fancy new Easter clothes. I curled Ryley's hair and loved it - She is gonna be so used to me messing around with her hair, I just can't wait until I have more of it to play with.

We walked to church because it was a beautiful Day, then came home and got our bikes so that we could ride over to Grandma Nielson's for Easter dinner, and the Easter Egg hunt. Ryley unfortunately got a head start of the egg hunt, and we had a bit of a chocolaty mess on our hands. We went on a walk down to the river and then got to ride our bikes back home.

What a perfect weekend. I Love family time, and I Love it when Jordan has some time off work!
