We had very unexciting Easter baskets this year at the end of those strings, but the girls were excited all the same and we snuggled in for the second day of conference.
We had some families over from the neighborhood for a pot-luck brunch in between sessions, and I wish I had taken a picture of all those good people, but here are a couple:
I did take a pic of one of the dishes one family brought because wow:
They were so good!
I got the “Easter kitchen” after they left.
Some good note-taking:
Had to include that last one even thought it’s blurry because I like it.
We took pics. to show what we were doing on our group family text:
Bo was very excited about all that hoopla.
This was a pretty heart-breaking part of Easter….I really, really had to help Lucy see those eggs.
But I’m not going to go into that right now. Let’s just stay on the bright side for today.
Love these sisters.
Right before we left to head to our extended family Easter dinner Lucy decided we must somehow figure out an April Fool’s joke. She came up with this all on her own and was quite serious about it.
Everyone totally bought it and asked her all kinds of questions as to how she broke it: it was on the trampoline, she bounced too high, it happened that morning, etc. etc. I was trying to figure out how I felt with all that “joking” so I was happy she was excited to make her own announcement before the prayer…Dave told everyone she had announcement and she whipped that sling off with all the enthusiasm in the world and said “April Fools!” to which everyone erupted in clapping and laughing.
I didn’t get a pic of everyone around one of the adult tables but here’s Grace and her newest little cousin’s baby (what do you call that? Cousin-once-removed?)
Here’s a better one:
Oh man he is so dang sweet.
…as are these girls:
I’ll let the pictures tell the rest of the story since I’m out of time. Here you go!
Oh, except one more note: Dave’s parents just returned from serving a mission in Africa…more on that soon, but so fun to have them reunited with all these people:
