Easter Weekend

This Easter Saturday the whole Reynolds clan drove down to St. George to hike through Snow Canyon but we got rained out.  We stopped at a park for lunch and the rain stopped just in time for us to eat.  There was a guy there selling these adorable bunnies.  Perfect Easter timing!


Our family retired from the festivities early and came home.  This is a picture of my daffodils that I planted in the fall!

When we came home we dyed eggs.  It was the first year we did this as a family and the kids LOVED it!  My sister Nikki and I were reminiscing when we were young my mom would buy dozens and dozens of eggs for us to dye.  My Dad in attempt to not waste would eat as much as he could.  My sisters and I hated eggs and a lot would go to waste.



Sunday morning the Easter Bunny left a grass trail in our house to the kids' baskets.


After eating way too much candy before breakfast the kids went on their easter egg hunt that the bunny had laid out for them.




Then Kurt made his delicious potato salad with those eggs so as not to waste them.  He thought the shells looked too cool to not photograph.

As Kurt took hours, not kidding, to make his salad, I got the kids ready for church.  Grandma Reynolds got Drew and Brody their outfits and our good friends Curtis and Christina Barnum gave us Alia's dress when she was born.  Sadly this was the best picture could get of them.
 



After church we had a BBQ with the Reynolds clan again.  Then the kids went on another hunt that Grandma Karla put together for all the grandkids.

So cute! Happy Easter....By the way, I still remember you are a winner in my "give-away". I am just waiting for life to settle a little. Does that ever happen? But in the meantime-please send me your address to mattigparker@hotmail.com so I can get it in the mail soon as whatever I make is done. ;-) I've been debating what to make. I can make headbands for your girls, a set of handmade happy-birthday and thank you notes, or a treat. You pick, cause I can't make up my mind!
