A VERY NICE EASTER WEEKEND!


What a busy and eventful weekend it was! Saturday we had a Easter Egg Hunt put on by some friends from the Bayonne, NJ Branch. The kids loved every minute of it. We went a little bit early for lunch with everyone at the park and then took the kids to the nearby portico so that Easter treats could be hid for the children. This consisted of three different roped off areas for three different age groups. Hordes of candy and chocolate where thrown everywhere for the children to find. As you can see, my children did very well. Actually all the children did very well. You should have seen the amount of Easter goodies there were. Well done and a HUGE thank you to the Johnson family! After the egg hunt we all headed back up to the portico for a puppet show put on by the senior sister missionaries. Afterwards they let the children play with the puppets which Edyn loved.

We then headed home to get ready for a farewell dinner for the Scott family. A family we are very close to and are not very happy about them leaving at all. But we do wish them well and hope they know that they will be extremely missed! That night stayed up until 1:30 am preparing food for the Visiting Teaching Conference that was to be held the next day. Then much to my dismay was woken up by Ethan at 6:30am as he could no longer contain his Easter excitement. So the kids opened their baskets and enjoyed another Easter Egg Hunt. Went to Church, finished the VT Conference (which I think went very smoothly - thank you everyone who helped!) and then off to some friends for an Easter Dinner. Got home around 10:30pm and I'd say we are now officially POOPED!
