We had a great Easter weekend. Saturday we went to the annual ward Easter breakfast and egg hunt. Luckily the Easter bunny hid the eggs in the building this time since it was rainy and muddy outside. We practiced looking for eggs the night before and Brooklyn had a blast "finding" all the eggs. She didn't have to search too hard at the egg hunt though since they were scattered all over the floor because there were so many! I guess the Easter bunny hasn't been hit by the economy yet.
Sunday was great. The kids looked adorable (to us at least!), but Brooklyn was not in the mood for pictures. Little stinker. So, she's crying in them all. Oh well. She really got into the whole "beautiful dress" mode at church. She would hold the sides of her dress look up at people and swish back and forth, just waiting for a compliment. She is definitely her Daddy's daughter. Lol
We finished off the day at our good friends, the Rigtrups, for Easter dinner. Yummy ham, scalloped potatoes, salad, spinach & artichoke stuffed rolls, fruit salad, lemon meringue pie and chocolate cream pie! We all ate way too much! Thanks again guys for always having us over!!

In keeping with the advice of President Monson he gave yesterday (I think it was him at least!), we decided to take the kids to the temple tonight for FHE and "let them touch the temple!" Ok, Brooklyn probably didn't even realize it was there. She was too excited to run around the temple grounds. What a blessing to have temples to visit! I felt so overwhelmed looking at the U.S. flag flying next to the Angel Moroni. I am so thankful to be able to worship freely!!
