Michael had to work this year on Easter so we celebrated with him a week early. The kids had a long weekend for Easter so we loaded up and headed to Idaho. The kids were excited to get to spend Easter with Grandma Joyce, Grandpa Jim, Aunt Kelli and Grandma Great. The weather was okay so we were able to spend some time outdoors on Saturday. I got to go to town all by myself and do some shopping (thanks Joyce and Kelli). Kelli took two of the boys to a basketball game and Joyce took the rest of the kids to go do other things. We all met up at one of the schools that afternoon. The kids played on the playground and Kelli played ball with them too. They had a great time. Later, Jim took the kids out and shot Zane's new BB gun. Zane had one BB bounce back and hit him in the tummy. He thought it was pretty funny! The highlight was Joyce getting her BB and little closer to the middle of the bullseye than Jim :) Of course, Jim says otherwise! Sunday was church and then Easter lunch with the whole family followed by an Easter egg hunt for the kids. My kids had one of their cousins there to hunt and play with them. Monday started off beautiful but we had to cut our visit short and head home because of threatening storms. We visited my dear friend Karla, went to Grandma's and then met Joyce for lunch before heading out. The kids were sad to leave early but we'll be back in a few weeks for Zane's baptism. It was a very nice weekend and I am so glad, once again, to be back closer to family so that things like this can happen. I didn't have my camera with me for everything but here are a few pictures from the weekend.
The Easter Bunny even found the kids again Easter morning.
