Easter has become one of my favorite holidays - I love the traditions, the symbolism, and of course, any excuse to spend extra time with my family. This year the kids got to wear their Easter clothes a week early because we had General Conference on Easter Sunday. Luke was especially excited about his new outfit because the shirt had short sleeves. Ruby was just happy to have something pretty.
We tried to spend time in the week leading up to Easter talking about the resurrection and the real reason we celebrate. The kids were pretty good and knowing the right answers, but when it came down to it, they really just wanted to color Easter eggs and get ready for the Easter Bunny.
The cutest little Easter Bunny ever!
Sunday afternoon we headed down to Santaquin to hunt with Grandpa and Grandma and the cousins. This is always the most fun. This year Jami did Bunny Money in a lot of the eggs, and several had instant challenges that had to be completed before finding more eggs. When it was all over the kids could use their money to shop at the Easter store to pick out their own prizes. All of the cousins had so much fun together and really watched out for each other. It was the best way to end all of our Easter activities.
Ninja kicks and rollovers were part of the challenges
