Body World Exhibit

Wade bought us ticket to see Body World.  An exhibit that shows the intricate details of the human body.  We had our own guide through the exhibit-Dr. Pattee.  Justin so patiently explained the in's and out's of the human body.  I came out of the exhibit in such awe of the blessing our bodies are and how God thought of everything and the love he has for us to give us this amazing gift.

Funny Bunny's

As you can see by these pictures, we have some "funny bunny's" in our family. Nana asked the kids if they were too old to dye Easter eggs and they all replied,"no way". It's amazing that no matter what the age you don't grow out of traditions. Nana makes if fun with her contests. The traditional chick and bunny hop contest and of course the best colored egg contest and having money involved even makes it that much more competive.

Easter Cabin Fun

The cabin is the place to be at Easter time. Spring is so beautiful in the mountains. Before everyone got to the cabin we took Justin and Joslyn to see Tonto bridge. Hiking on the slick rocks to see the waterfall was a fun adventure.
We celebrated Easter with "follow the string" followed by an Easter egg hunt in the forest.  It gets to be quite competitive, challenging and exciting.  I think the Easter bunny's (Wade and Grandpa) enjoy it even more than the egg hunters.  This year Mitch made bank with finding 62.00 dollars worth of eggs.
Our little friend, Butter the squirrel wanted in on the action and loved all the attention and sunflower seeds we fed him.  The rest of the day the kids played with their Easter basket goodies.  It was wonderful celebration all together in such beautiful surroundings.

Easter Pageant

We really look forward to the Easter Pageant every year. The true meaning of Easter is captured in this beautiful re-creation of the Saviors life. We loved taking Mac to see it since he had never seen it before. Our favorite part is when the Savior ascends in the sky towards heaven. We feel so incredibly blessed for our knowledge of Christ atoning sacrifice in our behalf, his life, resurrection, and unconditional love he has for us.
